SS19 has gone wild. Aligned with the neutral animal prints and tropical motifs that have been taking pride of place in our warm-weather wardrobes, the safari trend embraces elements of utility styling to encapsulate the adventurous spirit of summer, whether you’re on a city break, by the coast or navigating sizzling temperate on home ground. Here’s how to wear it…
1. The Palm-Print Shorts
The safari trend has been brought into the tropics. Taking its style cues from grounded colour palettes, these high-waisted shorts are designed in dark green with palm leaf prints in tonal hues. They’re made from summer-ready linen and cotton and look particularly striking when paired with a white cami and sunshine-yellow accessories.
2. The Palm-Print Midi
Want to go head-to-toe in palm prints? Crafted from a breathable blend of linen and cotton, this must-have midi is the chicest way to way to embrace the tropical trend, while the shirt-dress silhouette nods to safari styling. A khaki-green bag with a bamboo handle keeps things co-ordinated, while simple black sandals add an effortless finish.
3. The Khaki Culottes
When we think of the safari trend, khaki is one of the key colours that springs to mind. Take the tone in a cool, contemporary direction with a pair of softly-structured culottes and team with a light cotton blouse – simply tuck it into the waistband to highlight your waist. For carefree days on holiday or in the urban jungle, wear with animal-print sandals and a macramé bag in off white.
4. The Zebra-Print Co-Ords
By now, most of us are well-versed in all things animal print, thanks to fashion’s recent fascination with safari styling. For a new, refreshing take on the trend, look to our new zebra print, found on our utility-inspired shirt and tapered trousers which have both been consciously crafted from organic cotton. Wear together and complement the natural, earthy colours with a straw circle bag and sliders made from brown woven leather.
