One Tribe Apparel is where style meets culture

One_Tribe_HammockIt’s not everyday you find clothes for everyday wear that are rooted with so much culture. However, the harem pants from One Tribe Apparel are so connected with the lifestyle of the Thai village that wearing them is like taking a trip to an island paradise.

The harem pants connects people from all walks of life. They are worn by dancers and yogis, fishermen, muay thai fighters, hikers, backpackers, the boho chic, those who embrace the alternative lifestyle, and everyone in between including girls like me who want something comfortable to wear on the weekend.

The styles as well as the beautiful colors and patterns fit the bohemian Thai culture well. But you don’t have to be lying on a hammock with island beats playing in the background, to enjoy these beautiful handmade pants. Even if you’re miles away, there are several reasons to grab yourself a pair of One Tribe Apparel harem pants.

1. Stylish: Just because your clothes feel comfortable doesn’t mean they aren’t stylish. The harem pants from One Tribe Apparel are beautiful. The rich colors, eye catching patterns, and versatile styles make these pants very fashion friendly.

2. Infused with culture: One of my favorite things about these pants is how they are so closely tied to the Thai culture. With more clothes being so far removed from culture and history, One Tribe Apparel has managed to infuse so many aspects of Thai culture in this fashion item. For one, they are hand stitched with local fabrics using the village technique. Secondly, they are sourced from the villages surrounding Chiang Mai, where they are made with love and care in the village home. It’s also nice to know that the creators and artists behind these boho pants are paid fairly.

The knowledge that these pants are both sustainable and connect people of a certain culture and lifestyle makes www.onetribeapparel.com a unique brand that I recommend checking out.

Closetonthego.com solves a common fashion problem

closetonthego

Did you ever wish there was a way to see how an outfit would look without trying on every dress in your closet, or maybe you’ve seen a cute pair of shoes online but you’re not sure if it will go with items you already own. Closetonthego.com is a website that solves these problems.

I’m sure most of us have had to deal with this scenario where you’re pulling out every item in closet just to see what looks good for that big event; by the time you’ve got your outfit together you’re exhausted from trying on everything you own and you’re room is probably a mess with clothes and shoes here and there. Save yourself the hassle and sign up for an account at closet on the go. It is possibly the most practical and fun fashion related app I’ve ever seen.

How it works:

Once you join the site, you can begin taking and uploading photos of items from your own closet to the site to put in your virtual closet. You then select items from “My Closet” and put together looks and styles, like I did in the photo above. It’s so easy and addicting!

More reasons to love this unique fashion site:

1. Keeps you organized. If you’re constantly buying the latest trends, you can easily forget what you already have. This app brings items that may be stuck way in the back of your real closet to the forefront. You can then decide if you may need to part with the item or show it off more often. It’s a great way to de-clutter and keep you organized.

2. Easier to find matching items. Maybe you have a great skirt, but nothing in your closet to pair with it. With closetonthego.com, you can pair their eshop items with items you already own right in your virtual closet. This helps you find more great pieces to add to your wardrobe or outfit.

3. Take it anywhere. No more wondering if you should buy that bag while on vacation, because you’re afraid you have something similar waiting for you at home. Closet on the go literally goes where you go. Simply log on and see if you already have similar items or what you’re closet may be missing.

Manos Gerakinis, the founder, is a genius for creating the site and I highly recommend it for anyone who loves fashion and style.
