Tribal-, ethnic- and folklore-inspired looks were all over the runways this season and are one of this summer`s most important trends, my favourite one, in fact. Learn all about this versatile and colourful trend below.
col - aa Etro
Colourful tribal-, floral-, or exotic prints are essential.
col - b Roberto Cavalli`s interpretations of the Kaftan and the Poncho.
Adaptations of iconic pieces of clothing from far-away cultures add an exotic twist and unknown comfort.

 col - c Etro
 Maxi dresses in all-over print are a must-have this summer and crucial for this trend as well.

col d Roberto Cavalli - Chloe - Etro
 Leisure, wide pants and skirts become sexy when worn with light off-shoulder chiffon-tops.

Earth tones like browns, beiges and greens are a great addition or alternative if you don`t want to go colour-crazy.

Organic materials like cotton, leather, cork or wood add a 'natural' look without being 'basic' or boring.

 Opulent over-sized jewelry adds oriental glamour. More is more, in this case!
