British and American fashion has for decades been infatuated with colours and prints from faraway cultures, with the sixties and seventies fully embracing African influence in the mainstream. The rich colours and print of this Tribal Maxi Dress share that influence, retaining a retro appeal too.
The maxi cut is a great backdrop to create an early seventies style, tapping into the time that hippy looks went overground. The halter neckline of this creates the sharper cut, while a long flowing maxi skirt keeps the bohemian feel intact. With a black bodice ensuring the print doesn't overwhelm the dress, the vibrant tribal print can shine.
It's available now from Wallis for £60.
