Tribal Revival

I admired the ikat prints that exploded on the runway this summer, but they seemed "too much" for my currently pared-down aesthetic. I realized my feelings were such because I wear less clothing in the summer and the wild, graphic variations of the print overwhelmed my sensible side (an ikat maxi dress is A LOT of print for me). Now that fall has me layering like a fiend, I feel comfortable introducing a small item or two into an otherwise stable environment ;)
Here are a few of my favorite accessories:

Row 1:
-Rachel Bilson in an adorable ikat print skirt
-Tolani Gray/Pink Ikat Scarf (Love that the gray gets a lil' kick from the pink)
-Calvin Klein Ikat-Printed Blouse (could make work or weekend looks)
Row 2:
-Himalaya Trading Company scarves (Good deal and a variety of colors)
-Anthropologie Magic Ikat Tea Set (not an accessory, but SO cute)
-Velvet by Graham & Spencer Ikat Sequins dress (metallics = neutral = super wearable!)

Are you an Ikat fanatic or would you rather see the resurgence fizzle out?


  1. Just stopping by to wish you a happy monday.

  2. I do enjoy ikat. The tea set is my fave - granted you can't wear it, but it's still very pretty and a good cup of tea is even more wonderful out of a fancy little set like that!

    I'd take either of the Tolani scarves, too. Those are gorgeous!


  3. Ikad's are one of my all time fav' textile! So boho and cool!!! That tea set is killer!!!
