trend of the fashion week!!! ethnic

another trend for another fashionable week!!!
the ethnic trend still seems to be treading the catwalks and as years before this it looks like it again will be a fashion go to this spring/summer
there are soo many options when it comes to this trend along with variations on its name from ethnic to tribal to aztec which is usually used to describe a type of print inspired by the Aztecs.
 asos, topshop, new look

big statement necklaces are having real impact on the fashion world, looking back at many ethnic tribes they are often pictured wearing chunky neck wear which has trickled down to the catwalk and high street shops, the topshop necklace above reflects the ethnic trend by being a real statement necklace but also having bright colours, another thing ethnic tribes are often seen sporting in their fashionable lands.

the two dresses are both quite simple in colour but really have the tribal feel, they could be dressed up or down.

I love the bright tribal print socks, they could give a tribal feel to an outfit by sticking out the top of shoes.

the shorts have a washed out aztec type print which I think would look great with a simple or ethnic type tee, and probably some tights, I live tights!!!


another statement necklace, an easy way to get the ethnic look.

I really like the bright print on the top.

joggers seem to come with all sorts of patterns from plain colours to barbie, the ones above sport the tribal feel.

the jacket is quite a statement, but would probably look great with a pair of jeans and a simple top, and I really like the tassels!!!

the dress combines two fashion trends, it has a tribal type of print with kind of tie-die colouring.

new look, topshop, asos

yay lots more clothes, clothes, clothes all with a ethnic hint!!!
I really like the asos dress, I love the bright colours and I think it will be great for the summer!!!

I really love fairisle patterns in winter and tribal sort of prints kind of continue liney, lineys probably not a word, I mean patterns in lines, anyway it continues it into the summer, like in the asos t-shirt, yay.

leggings are an easy way to add a hint of ethnic patterning, there seems to be endless options for designs which could appear on them.

I like the beading on the black top and the vest, it gives clothing such a ethnic feel and I think looks great. [love a white vest!!!]

here are three outfits I put together of how you could mix and match within the ethnic trend, and all the clothes can be worn as statement ethnic pieces on their own, with other clothes of course!!!

I love clothes!!!
