"Tribal", African, "Native", Asian, or more vaguely, "ethnic", no bohemian chic wardrobe is complete without these culturally culled prints. The ethnic print inspires the modern hippie every year, all year. However, they were hot on the 2012 runways recently. Case in point? The above look from Fall 2012 Missoni show, where even the socks are in print, and the disparate prints are mixed in the most visually appealing way.

High end designers aside, when we think ethnic prints, normally we think of tiki, turquoise, and all other manner of warm weather delights. The thrifty shopper knows that any piece can be taken from summer to winter and back...why not the ethnic accent? Check out 7 Ways to Do Ethnic Accents in Winter, for ideas on how to  spice up your winter wardrobe with fashionable textiles from around the globe--and through the decades!
