Into the Wild
Into the wild…even if it’s just the concrete jungle. The new safari look is all about effortless chic with a utilitarian twist. To achieve this look, opt for sleek silhouettes in airy fabrics and rich neutrals inspired by the land. A fresh palette for spring, fatigue green, dark camel, and animal print transition easily from winter into the warmer seasons. Add natural fibers like cork, straw, and leather to finish a modern safari look with a touch of nature, easily attainable in sandals, a bag or hat. Channel your inner Lauren Hutton with these pieces:
