Thursday Poll: Tribal Prints

It’s no secret that as a brand, Free People has a little infatuation with tribal prints. Right now there are a whole slew of them on our website – popping up in fun and creative ways. I would happily add any of these to my closet, but which is your favorite way to rock ethnic prints? Bathing suit, head band, shorts….you tell us!

Style File: Sample Coordinator

This week’s style file is an FP girl through and through. She’s been working for the brand almost five years now, and she has the styling down pat. It goes something like: layer, layer, layer, awesome ankle-cut shoes, necklace, necklace, necklace, and then a fist full of rings. In writing it sounds like it’d be too much, but in person and in the photos you can see that it goes together amazingly. What do I want to rip off her most though? The jewelry. This girl has a collection that I think any girl would lust after. It’s full of rough stones, hammered metals, and ethnic engravings. She has a lot of artisan pieces that are funky and one of a kind.

Her friend gave her the binocular necklace when she moved away so that she could always see home (Chicago) from Philly. What a cute friend!

Thursday Poll: Cropped Bralletes!

Cropped bralletes are everywhere. I think just about every girl has one in her wardrobe nowadays, and I don’t know that this was so typical 10, 15, 20, 30….years ago. With fashion being cyclical, it’s tough to find things that are unique to our decade. Of course, bras have always been around, but the way we’re wearing these pieces feels entirely new. They’re useful to have. You can layer them under tanks with big armholes, t-shirts with back cutouts, or anything with a droopy neckline for that pop of something pretty, edgy, ethnic – whatever you want that pop to be.

So what do you want that pop to be? Let us know!
