10 Tribal Style Treats Inspired by Eva Mendes and Olivia Palermo

By  July 31, 2013

Eva Mendes and Olivia Palermo showed off similar summer styles this July, and we’re eager to replicate their folky, globally influenced fashion. The tribal trend was in full effect in both ladies’ adorable ensembles, Mendes taking on LA in a colorful patterned headscarf and painted smock, and Palermo rocking her favorite tasseled Pikolinos Maasai bib necklace in NYC (she’s an ambassador for the brand!) To pull off their bohemian looks, invest in pieces with colorful patters, from chevron stripes to geometric arrangements. Don’t hold back from mixing different color and print combinations–tribal is all about bold style choices. For example, Palermo’s loudly patterned dress and bright, heavy necklace may seem to clash, but they actually make for an interesting and statement making pairing. As for key tribal trend accessories, look for a roomy leather tote bag, oversized sunglasses, fringe and tassel detailing, and if you want some extra flair in your hair, a silk heardwrap or turban like Mendes’s.
