Exotic tribal prints are having a major moment

While colour blocking remains a hot trend, many of the recent shows were all about exotic prints. Missoni and Saint Laurent both featured animal prints in earthy tones, while Givenchy went all out with tribal patterns.

These trends are also appearing in active wear, with labels such as The Upside, Uniquely Lorna Jane and Vie Active all embracing exotic prints like python and leopard. Proving that when it comes to exercise gear fashion is as almost as important as function – as if you needed a reminder!

While we love the visual impact of layering exotic prints with bright colours like burnt orange together it’s not for the faint-hearted. This look needs to be rocked with confidence! So if you’re too scared to go all out, opt for a patterned trainer or try layering a printed crop top under a loose tank.
