No matter where you go shopping this fall, you will not miss the tribal sensation that has left the runway and entered our favorite stores.
The predictions from Fall 2011 fashion week were correct –– bold and vibrant colors, mixed with tribal designs, are the new trend for this season. Whether you are shopping at H&M or Saks Fifth Avenue you will find simple shaped dresses, rompers and jumpers all covered in tribal patterns and colors.
This exotic look consists of strong, graphic prints combined with earthy tones of browns, reds and oranges. These brightly assorted clothes are matched with simple chunk wooden bracelets or straw bags to top off the safari look.
Not only has the tribal look changed the style of clothing, but accessories as well. Totes, shoes, bracelets and scarves are all inspired by the Native American and African tribal patterns –– so it is sure to be a very colorful season for fashionistas and shoppers alike. Mixing different designs and patterns together seems to be the way to make the whole tribal look stand out, and really pop. If you want this look at home you can go into your closet, pick out the boldest colored clothing from last season and pair it with anything the latest patterns.
Be sure to stand out this fall by wearing everything tribal!

From tribal punk to tribal chic, try this season's earthy and exotic look.
Tribal influences pranced down the runway at Galliano and Lanvin, and not just the Paris runways. Spring’s Manoush dresses and Laurence Helle’s lovely blouses are alsp tribally inspired and making the brink of summer the perfect time to listen to the call of the wild.
From tribal punk to tribal chic, there are several ways to pull off the earthy and exotic look. Anyone can embrace their inner African Queen by accessorizing with Alexander McQueen’s Large Tribal Scarf. Pair it with a printed dress, your favorite bomber jacket or denim shorts. If you have an extra $1,600, you might wan to consider blowing it on Louboutin’s “it” shoe of the season. The Ulona platforms have geometric shapes with thick gold straps and make you feel like a real African Queen.
For styles that won’t break the bank, American Apparel’s Afrika print dress and Top Shop’s Geo Graphic Maxi dress are affordable options and easily paired with last year’s gladiator sandals. Jonesing for authenticity? Max Osterweis spent a decade collecting fabrics in Kenya before launching his Africa-inspired line Suno. Suno’s separates are wearable art and beautifully handmade in the homeland.

Oh wipe away your Jersey Shore mental image. These are dainty-chic and actually, pretty rad.
You dream you’re Brittney, holding tight to Tyson Beckford speeding through Malibu or Pink with a chainsaw, carving up your ex-boyfriend’s lawn. You dream you’re Megan Fox. A girl can dream… Leave it to Chanel to find an acceptable outlet for your inner Angelina Jolie making those dreams a reality. Chanel Body Transfers are temporary tattoos inspired by models walking Karl Lagerfeld’s hay-strewn Spring 2010 runway. Oh, wipe away your Jersey Shore mental image. These are dainty-chic and actually, pretty rad.
Model Daisy Lowe sported a Chanel double C-linked chain around her thigh at the launch of her her Swarovski crystal jewelry collection in London in January. (Who ever thought we’d write that? Coco Chanel is rolling over in her grave!) But Chanel tats are delicate, whimsical and artsy. Come spring, they will be all the rage. And you’ll have to wait until then because Chanel “body transfers” won’t be available at Chanel boutiques until March 1.

Swimsuit Cover Up's
Whether you want something handy to pull on over a bikini as you run to a corner store for a flavored water, you want to protect your skin from the sun, or you have a creepy uncle that shows up at your families’ summer home – a swimsuit cover up is a great to have.
In fact, I recommend having more than one. They’re crucial on my vacation list.If Heroes‘ hottie Milo Ventimiglia happens by my poolside and asks me to eat dinner with him and his friends, I want to be prepared.
There are several choices out there, but I narrowed it down to my top six from some of TheStylishCity.com’s favorite stores. See what you think.
1. BCBG Max Azaria Embroidered Ikat Cover Up from Nordstrom ($198.00). I love how flouncy it looks, especially the sleeves.
2. Dotti Pleated Shirt Cover Up from Macy’s ($48.00). Or, get it with pleated pockets.
1. DKNY Swimwear Dot Cover Up from bloomingdale’s ($108.00). For the glamazon in every female.
2. Milly Merano Crochet Mini Dress from Saks ($271.00). Good for petite frames. Subtly flirty.
3. Shosanna Swim Cover Up from Saks ($175.00). This is similar to the Milly one, but I wanted to include it because I love Shosanna. This is a little less virginal, and will compliment a curvy figure better.
4. Diane Von Furstenberg Harlequin Fish Cover Up from Saks ($225.00). This will enhance your bust. Plus, so pretty.
