This week inside Tunu’s closet…(7)

All this is evident from her closet which will  be featured on Capital Lifestyle every week as she gives you tips on how to rock some of these fashionable on trend pieces!

This week, here’s what she has to say about some of the trends that are all the rage this year.


Tribal trend is a modern approach to Africa. And being a Kenyan, I’m very much familiar with the tribal print from the Maasai culture. But from those of you who aren’t, the Tribal trend consists of strong graphic prints with dark hues and warm earthy tones.

PEPLUM DRESS + some animal print

Leopard print has always been in vogue. Lol Throughout history, Leopard skin was considered a symbol of bravery and status for the kings and other high people have used it as a sign of wealth and status.
As much as its not the real leopard skin, it miraculously still has the same effect. Add a touch of leopard print accessories in your outfit for an elegant impression.


I’ve been trying to let loose and try something a little crazy. This new fashion combination that shouldn’t work but would do.

Playing it on the safe side, I picked two best bold prints of this season i.e scarf print and tribal print.

Most people fear mixing print, I agree it can be very confusing even to look at and you have to be very careful to work this trend. Although the best combos are ones that seem unlikely to match!


The great thing about today’s fashion is that anything goes as long as it suits you and you are comfortable in it. Denim Jackets are all right again,they have recently made a return into the forefront of fashion. Especially the cropped ones, they are a must have!

So which trend is a MUST try for you? The tribal jacket, the peplum + some animal print, the safe mix print or the cropped denim jacket look?
