Ask Lily: Styling Advice & JewelMint Questions! The Tribal Inspired Print Trend - Where To Find

I love styling clothes, I love dressing up, and I love playing with my jewelry and accessories collection to see what I can come up with next! I mean, what girl doesn't right? :) Yet sometimes the inevitable happens, and we get stuck in a fashion rut. Nothing is working out, and sometimes a we draw a blank. It happens to the best of us!

Send me an email at jewelsandmints@gmail.com and I'll do what I can to help! Feel free to send me questions about current trends, where to find things, how to style them, questions about JewelMint (pretty much anything and everything you need help with)!

I received the following request from Kavita earlier this week:

Kavita asks: Hi Lily, I read your blog quite regularly and noticed that you had offered to help with any styling questions, etc. I'm not sure if you received Jewelmint's weekly Style/Trend email, but I'm in LOVE with the tribal print dresses they mentioned.  Any idea where I can get these, or something similar?

Answer: I love this question! The best thing about the multi-colored tribal inspired print trend is that you can really get creative with it, especially with the huge array of prints that can be found right now. Try making a bolder statement with polar opposites such as softer prints and bolder jewelry or completely mimic the symmetry or even the asymmetry of the prints with the jewelry you choose. I've chosen a few dresses and individual articles with abstract prints and even the ikat trend that I'm really loving right now. I've paired them with some JewelMint pieces that I think will look perfect for summer!

Here are a few sets I've created for the items I found for you:

  1. Lily...the JEWEL70 does not seem to work...is there a minimum purchase or something?

  2. I was told the code was only good for about 12 hours, not sure if it is still working or not. Some people said it didn't work for them, others said it did. So it remains a mystery...sorry it didn't work for you.
