If the pastels and florals of spring aren't your thing, try a tribal touch.
African-inspired beadwork and prints adorn tops from Sass & Bide and men's shorts from Agnes B. Exotic skins, batik and natural materials such as horn and raffia lend a boho vibe to accessories.
Just take your basics, add a global accent and land at a look that's at once ebullient and sophisticated, trendy and timeless, and almost guaranteed to brighten a world view.
