Summer Trends: Safari

Safari is back and a raging summer trend. This past spring, runway shows including the likes of Louis Vuitton and Ralph Lauren had a prominent safari theme. Keep this trend sweet and simple, or dare to be bold in loud prints. Below are some of my favorite simple choices.

Banana Republic
I love the Silk Safari Top paired with the Safari Pencil Skirt. It makes a perfect ensemble for this trend. The top’s bold print against the soft silk texture matched with the soft cotton pencil skirt creates an ideal summer outfit. I especially love the simple twist detail of the neckline.

Silk Safari Top Available at Banana Republic for $69.00

Safari Pencil Skirt Available at Banana Republic for $59.00

Forever 21

This Knit Safari Shirt is a simple take on this trend. I’d use this piece as a soft light cardigan for those summer nights over a simple tank or cami. Pair it with a great accessory and some jeans and you’re good to go.

Available at Forever 21 for $19.80


The Sonoma Zebra Disc Drop Earrings are a perfect way to mix in this trend to just about any summer outfit. Its simple colors are perfect for the bold zebra print.

Available at Kohl’s for $8.08

Charlotte Russe
If you’re looking for updated flats, these Satin Giraffe Flats may be just the pair. It even comes in purple and light brown if you want to brighten up for summer.

Available at Charlotte Russe for $18.99

New York & Company

New York & Company currently has one of the largest collections of (as they call it) “Fierce Prints.” They offer everything from tops to belts to shoes following this safari theme. This City Style Python Print Scarf is one of their simple accessories. They also offer it in a fun turquoise color. Best of all, it’s on sale for $13.56.
