The tribal look is easily one of the most prevalent fashion trends for spring. Stylish ethnic inspired fabrics, straw bags, and bone-and-wood bangles are available at every retailer, from Neiman Marcus to Dress Barn!

Want to embrace the tribal trend but are afraid of looking like you’ve stepped off the set of the Lion King? Just add one (or two at the most) elements to an existing, minimalist ensemble. Here, I’ve chosen two eye-catching pieces of tribal jewelry that play off of the stunning turquoise skirt.

And, anything in your closet that’s already sleek and simple – skirt, blouse, jacket or pants — in warm tones like beige, sand, brown, or chocolate will give you instant flair when paired with a truly tribal accent piece like a scarf, straw bag, or tribal patterned pumps.

Going tribal? I say “yes!” See you on the Serengeti!
