When looking at trends for Spring 2012, I saw a lot of tribal prints, bold colors, woven design and drawstring bag details. I love tribal prints and natural fabrics for Spring and Summer 2012. One way to mess up these upcoming seasons trends is to not wear it authentically. One way to incorporate authenticity into your wardrobe is to buy tribal prints, natural fashions right from the source. If you are not planning a trip to some far off land any time soon, I would like to introduce you to Novica.
