This summer is all about prints and bright or contrasting colors. Everywhere I look-- magazines, stores, even on the street--I see lots of bright colored pants and designs that are clearly inspired by African and Latina American cultures. Fashion gurus are calling it the tribal trend.

Of course, I LOVE it. It makes me happy and proud. But to be honest, unless you have an unlimited budget for clothing and accessories, it does not make a lot of sense to go crazy buying many pieces. 

Think about it: If you use too many tribal clothes or accessories together, you may end up looking like a piñata. 

Below, a slideshow of accessories that will let you pull off the trendy tribal look for less than $25! It's a bargain, and best off all, most of the transition from day to night.

Coral and feathers!

Who doesn't like double-duty items? These earrings have feathers in the summer's hottest color--coral-- and have tribal elements. Pair these earrings with coral lipstick and very soft eyeshadow.
