Ikat Love Lookbook







Don’t forget to check out my Shiny and Sparkly Giveaway!

Tribal prints are a big trend out for spring and summer. The mix of African, ikat, and tribal prints gives any wardrobe an exciting twist.  On the runway, designers used a great mix of prints in outfitting, but I would recommend the safer route of sticking to one print per outfit to avoid fashion mistakes.  Tribal prints and ikats can get busy with the colors and the pattern so keeping it simple is best!


I recently purchased my Alice + Olivia ikat print dress and fell in love with the vibrancy of colors mixed in the ikat print.  The silhouette is a simple slip dress with adjustable straps and a little bit of elastic at the back; I found this dress so easy to wear on these hot summer days.  I paired the dress with my own jewelry and my L.A.M.B. black heels. My dress is still available at CUSP, I also am loving this print in this silhouette that Alice + Olivia did:

    Your dress is gorgeous! The colors in the print are fantastic – so bright and pretty for summer! I totally agree about limiting looks to one tribal print, too – I love all of the looks you've chosen! :)-jsorelle in style
