Off the Runway 2011-- Urban Traveller/Going Tribal

11 May 2011
OMG! I am enjoying this season. The trends albeit classic ones, have been inspiring me to no end. In fact I am up at 530 am creating this post because all I could think about was the clothes and putting together a board, and and and.. Ok so I suffer from OCD but I can't help it. I am a creative person and we tend to keep strange hours anyways. Not to mention I have a hot date tonight..

Today's trend board was inspired by this fashion spread in Russian Vogue

This trend is called Urban Traveller and Going Tribal in the fashion circles and is usually a very classic and popular trend for Spring and Summer since the late 60s--bohemian chic movement but this year they have brought in some bright beautiful colors and new prints to go along with those sexy animal prints. If its found in the ancient jungle or rain forest it has more than likely found its way printed on an outfit this season. So here is my take on the trend and I hope it inspires you to push the envelope when it comes to your own personal fashion.

Going Tribal Neon Color Trend
1. ASOS Wrap Front Asymmetric Blouse
2. Topshop Grey Printed Jersey Tapered Trouser
3. Baker's Shoe Wild Pair Swirly Platform
4. Fashion Scarves and Shawls Zebra Print Pashmina

Mixing prints or mixing the same print in different colors is a very popular trend this season in the Urban/Bohemian family. Don't be afraid to play around with the contemporary look and add a pop of color somewhere.
