A shift in style around campus
The newest style wave took an African twist, coming out of the jungle with a tribal print pattern design to go with all types of clothing from t-shirts to leggings.
The bold prints from simple shapes to graphic prints have been seen all around campus on both males and females.
“Honestly at first I thought it was just too much,” junior Edreis Sakhizada said. “Then I saw more and more of it when I went shopping and I thought maybe I can pull this off.”
Some students wear a touch of it on things such as hats, scarves, and bags while some wear tribal leggings, sweaters, and cardigans.
“I see students wearing many different articles of clothing with a tribal print on it,” junior Feroza Nabizada said. “My favorite is when people wear sweaters with just a touch of the print either on the shoulders or elbow patches.”
The print can be worn on a casual day or can be worn with different items to make it a little more fancy and sophisticated.
“I love my big and fuzzy tribal cardigan,” junior Bibihawa Mohabbat said. “I can look nice and be cozy but I can also make it fancy with black pants, nice jewelry and some heels.”
Tribal print can be found in most stores in the mall that carry clothes for young adults and teens.
“Tribal is all you see now at Forever 21 and H&M,” senior Keerat Bains said. “They have it in both the guys’ sections and girls’ sections in different styles and different patterns.”
They can be worn everywhere from school to work to parties and gatherings. Tribal is fancy and cozy and some prints fit in the holiday theme too.
