Decoding Tribal Fashion

The rich culture of the natives determines the cultural heritage of a place. Their richness of culture is reflected not only through their art and music but also their clothing and jewellery. It’s marvelous how these primordial tribes made fashion happen at a time when the human race was only grasping the meaning of progress. Today, designers from all over the world are taking inspiration from the blueprints they left behind.

The earthy designs, metallic texture and vibrant colours are what tribal fashion is famous for. The bold prints in highly eye catching colours set this fashion genre apart from the rest. Sometimes we sport tribal fashion without even realizing it. Animal prints, geometric shapes, threadwork, weaves, bead work and ethnic designs all come under the umbrella concept of tribal fashion.

This season, tribal fashion is all about weaves and prints. The Burberry 2012 men’s collection has a host of outfits in prints inspired by the Aztec and American Indians. Donna Karan’s collection for women’s tribal fashion is based on a dark palette and relaxed patterns that make it wearable during the summer. Paul and Joe’s odd prints in vibrant colours were also a hit with the women.

Donning tribal fashion can be quite tricky and it is absolutely important to keep certain things in mind in order to do full justice to the style. For example, if your tribal outfit is brightly coloured and printed, then the only other thing that you’d need to complete the look is a pair of sexy sandals. If you intend to wear rustic tribal jewellery, then maybe that bright top should wait. If tribal outfits seem too loud for you , you can still incorporate the tribal element into your ensemble by sporting a bag or belt in tribal design.

Top 5 Tips For Budding Writers

William Wordsworth said, “Writing is a deeply immersive experience. When the words are flying, the house could be burgled and I wouldn’t notice. ….writing is a way of escaping the quotidian.”  Writing is much more than a series of ornamental words arranged in a sentence. It is how a writer expresses the finer details of his emotions. This post is dedicated to those young budding writers who are as passionate about writing as we are…

Some are born with a flair for writing while some grow a passion for it in the course of their lives. However writing is an art perfected by practice. Writer’s Pad brings you tips on how to master this art:

1: Read a lot
Reading the works of great writers not only inspires but also educates you in the field. It’ll increase your vocabulary and perfect your grammar. Remember, the more you read the more you learn.

2. Write a lot
As mentioned earlier, practice makes one perfect. So write a lot. Write about a variety of things to sharpen your skills and broaden your horizon.

3. Word Control
Every word carries a different sense and a writer is expected to understand that. Do not go overboard with descriptive words and keep the writing style fluid. Which one would you like better, a writing that flows effortlessly or one that hurls words at you ostentatiously?

 4. Engaging readers
While writing a story, do not reveal information through narrative explanations and let it unfold gradually and organically instead. An element of conflict always interests people, so throw obstacles in the way of your protagonist.
While writing other articles, back every point with example or reason instead of making them sound like aphorisms.

5. Publish on the internet
In order to receive honest feedback, publish your compositions on a public forum or an on-line writer’s forum. This will also facilitate meeting of ideas and minds of strangers sharing the common passion for writing. Besides, you can learn from other’s works.

Writing can be both fulfilling and rewarding. Certain things nourish your existence and refine your being. The art of writing is one of those. Nurture your talent so that it never fails you. So why not start with Writer’s Pad today?
