The “In” Tribe
A new season calls for a fresh update to springs ever-popular safari.
Perennially a fixture of spring wardrobes, the tribal trend is back for 2015. This season, though, it’s better than ever, marching to a fresh beat that includes a more refined color palette and fringed details to boot. Designers like Zac Posen and Diane von Fürstenberg have given the style a new spin on the runway, inspiring trendsetters down the line to take notice. Countering the usual busy patterns and Santa Fe-style prints, this spring’s selection of graphics have taken a softer turn: Ikat and batik are boasting brights in simpler patterns, and threaded tassels have replaced fall’s heavy leather fringe. Even embellishments have taken the update in stride, showcasing ornamentation that includes beading, feathers and embroidery. Be still your boho heart—this trend is here to stay.
