Ever since “The Lion King” premiere, “ I Just Can’t Wait to be King” is on repeat in my head. And that’s a good thing. Why not brighten the day with some happy, hopeful lyrics that were originally sung by a cute and cuddly baby lion?
And that’s not the only inspiration I’m feeling from The Lion King reboot. You see, I’m feeling the tribal print vibe, and it seems like I’m not alone — because stores are carrying tribal print bags, pants, tops and more.
Personally, I’m glad to see the return of tribal prints in fashion. They’re fun, approachable and an easy statement for anyone to pull off. Here are some of my favorite ways to wear this trend.
6 Ways to Wear the Tribal Print
In small doses: the accessory
This Twig & Arrow Tribal Shoulder Bag stands out when you pair it with something in a monochrome hue — a mustard or red dress is a great choice.
If you want to make your tribal prints pop, try wearing them as standalone accessories. You’ll draw the eye to them (and then no one will notice anything else you’re wearing).
All in: the jumpsuit
Jumpsuits make getting dressed a breeze when you’re in a hurry, and they’re genius if you really love the idea of going all in on your tribal print.
This Bohemian Florals Crochet Jumpsuit from Windsor boasts a slightly retro 1970s vibe, brought to life courtesy of vibrant yellow blooms that nicely complement the delicate white tribal pattern. Slip into black pumps and you’re ready for your dinner date!
Effortless: the dress
There’s nothing as reliable as a breezy dress during summertime. Even better, this one from ASOS DESIGN offers a feminine take on the tribal trend. It’s an easy option for anything on your agenda thanks to its just-dressy-enough pattern. The neutral colors keep it minimal, but the print is still eye-catching enough to stand out.
For the unexpected: shorts
It’s prime time to slip into a comfortable pair of shorts that helps you cool off on the balmiest days of the year. Why not make it one that bears a pretty, classic pattern?
