Aussie Curves: Tribal

Aussie Curves challenge theme this week is Tribal. I saw these amazing pants by Avella at Big W not long back and snapped them up just because they were super comfy and cheap! And as it ends up, looking though my wardrobe today the whole look just fell together effortlessly around them- bargain buy win!





Jacket: Crossroads
Blouse: Kmart
Pants: Avella via BigW
Wedges: Betts
Necklace: Collete

When I think of tribal, I imagine line based prints, earthy shades with bold standouts, rope, dirt and neck collars! This Colette necklace nailed the collar on the head! It reminds me of the long neck rings worn in some African and Asian cultures- of course my Australian interpretation of the style anyway!




I seriously love the look of these pants. The print is reminiscent of tribal war-paint and the cut is almost Hammer-pants like! The red really pops against the pattern and the netting style wedge, I can't get enough of these killer Betts wedges- soooooo comfy!!!




I love how the structure of the jacket balances the free flowing top and pants. And when you have awesome deep pockets like this- no handbag!

How do you interpret a tribal theme??

  1. I was trying to work out why you look so different... then it clicked. You don't normally wear pants. I'm used to seeing you in a dress. LOL. Loving the red in your outfit!

  2. I interpret tribal in much the same way you too. I have some ikat print dresses and heavy silver structured jewlery I like to wear with it. You look beautiful and really good in pants! Love the wedges!

  21. Another great outfit. I contemplated a pair of pants like but that I am too scared to even try them on. I think all of the skinny jeans and harem style pants in my tweens scarred me. Also, I used to have the same style of necklace in gold from a store in the US. I love it when fashion worlds collide.
