Tribal? So I was a little bit scared by this trend. Just because, you know, I’m no spring chicken, even if I do still feel 18 inside, and all those clichés that people my age spurt when faced by the mutton dressed as lamb dilemma. Oh god, are they a bit young for me? It hurts to type that.
But anyway, I was feeling myself strangely drawn to a pair of tribal print trousers I’d seen online at dorothyperkins.com. Cautiously, I went to visit them in the shop, but to my great disappointment, they didn’t stock them in my local store. So I was still left hanging. Anyway, I was having a little shop in the DP online sales and suddenly fell foul of the old ‘free delivery if you spend more than £75’ trick. I clicked the aforementioned tribals into the basket in the most kamikaze of fashions, justifying this crazy move with the free delivery bracket. How could I not?
So they came. And they were exactly as I expected so no surprises there. Here they are.
Me, looking pensive. ‘I like these trousers, but will anyone else? And do I care?’
So there you have it. I’ve done it. I’ve got the tribal trousers. I haven’t actually worn them out yet. But I will (I think?) Have you got any pieces that you love but you’re a little bit shy to wear? Let me know about your fashion fears.
Can’t wait to hear from you
