Walking the High Street at the weekend, tribal, Aztec prints smothered the legs and torsos of the exotic manikins aligned in the windows. I was drawn to the opulent and rich textures and became consumed by the warm, Autumn look. I took it upon myself, as a personal quest, to search high and low for the best Moroccan infused outfits of the High Street.

 The Leggings 

The leggings hold the heart of this look. I find that the key to pulling off ‘the traveller’ is layers, layers and more layers, with coats, jumpers, and accessories. You really only need invest in one pair of leggings, as they can suit any occasions. For a night out, all you need to do is swap your casual faux fur-lined boots for a pair of textured stilettos.

 Textures  

Bounteous fringing and lavish faux-fur textures are the key to capturing this luxe look. A combination of knits, faux-fur, sleek statin, metallic, studs, leather and faux-fur will go hand-in-hand with a gorgeous print. Click Here to see the faux-fur trend.

Team patterned legs with a dark metallic top and a snug faux-fur coat or gilet for a textured take on this trend.

Block, Bright Colours

 A rich colour palette will bring this look to life. Try not to overdo it and keep the attention to a minimum, and it is best to have print in only one item.

Jumpers

 This is the perfect Autumn look as the tribal prints work perfectly on knit, keeping you warm and stylish throughout the cold months. If you prefer to keep it subtle, throwing on a jumper over leggings or jeans will look just as lovely as all-out layers.

 Accessories are relied heavily on when portraying this look. They can either make or break the outfit. Here are some accessories that you can’t go wrong with;
