Going Tribal–How to Stand Out in the Jungle



Whether it’s ‘in’, as in seriously on trend, or just lurking in the bushes, animal print, tribal and ethnic styles and motifs just seem so right for summer and just about every label has something to go along with the jungle vibe particularly when the sun comes out.

I think you have to be careful how you wear it, as with any trend, as you can look seriously ‘fashion victim’ over done, but I will confess to always loving just a hint of leopard, tiger or zebra particularly when wearing summer’s neutrals tan, dark brown, ivory, beige and white.

This season in particular there’s a lot to choose from, and whether your taste is to a sexy halter-neck leopard print dress or a simple pair of tiger’s eye drop earrings, you can wear this one all summer long and segue seamlessly into autumn.

Incidentally, in case you hadn’t gathered I’m currently working out here in the US where the world’s best lingerie store waits temptingly in every shopping mall and on every major shopping street.  If you prefer to wear your leopard, tiger or zebra print under, rather than over, there is quite simply no better place to shop than Victoria’s Secret and they deliver quickly and efficiently to the UK.  Yes you will have to pay extra shipping and duty, but take it as one who know; they are, quite simply, the best.  Browse and be tempted, you have been warned.  Oh and by the way.  They will be opening in the UK in 2012.  O dear……………………..
