Outfit Options Week - Going Tribal with TOMMY HILFIGER Orange Aurora Ikat Print Sleeveless Dress

I don't mind starting this post with a confession. I struggle with anything that makes me think of tribal. It's never long before the word 'tribal' is uttered before visions of leopard print and tackiness start to swim in my head and I start to plot a swift retreat. So the whole tribal 'trend' this year is a concern, although I am doing my level best to embrace the ikat prints, as seen here in orange on this sweet Tommy Hilfiger Aurora shift. The dress itself is plain and wearable, the question is, what shoes to add without it all looking a bit too 'try hard'?

I finally decided on either of the following bag and shoe combinations:

Orange Poppy Suede Criss Cross Sandal
Orange Degrade Python Large Sofia Bowler Bag
Beige Strapped Back Zip Sandals
Beige Shoulder Bag

I don't believe the dress would look right with dark shoes, and pairing a print as bold as this with white could be a 'good taste' disaster!

What do you think? I love the dip dye bag though and this would also work well with the nude sandals for instant leg lengthening and a hint of colour in the purse.

If you are wondering about The Friday Luxe by the way this will return next week!
