Tribal Prints Should Be Worn Often. Forget The Backlash

Why is it that controversy pops up only occasionally when fashion borrows from other cultures, but not always? Gwen Stefani got busted for her Harijuku Girls, as did Rachel Ray for wearing a paisley scarf that looked like a keffiyeh. But where was the outrage for exploiting Native American culture last year when everyone was wearing fringe moccasins

There has already been some resistance to my favorite trend, the African-inspired print, but why would I object to patterns that couldn't make an outfit boring if they tried? If you ask me, we should all forget this dumb backlash. Here are my picks for how to wear bright, flattering tribal.

1. This Mint Madagascar Ceremony Skirt ($297) is fun, lightweight, and perfect for the summer weather.

2. Throw a linen blazer over this Banana Republic Block Print Dress ($100, was $130) and wear the trend to the office.

3. This Milly Tribal Print Top ($235) works with pretty much any color on your lower half: blue, khaki, green, or bright summer white.
