The streets can be a wild place, especially out in the urban jungle! Look ready to take on the world when roaming about town sporting the oh-so-chic safari trend in this Michael Kors look (above).
Going on safari is more than just wearing animal prints and khakis, it’s an attitude. It’s in one word: Fierce! These pieces will make sure you look and feel ferocious or kittenish, depending on your mood—and your expedition.
If there’s one style of dress that every woman should own, it’s a wrap dress. Curve enhancing and flattering, this style fits all body types. This Calvin Klein Animal Print Wrap Dress ($99.50), in tiger print, is more than eye-catching. Don’t feel like a traditional animal print? Then try something like this IGIGI by Yuliya Racquel Plus Size Tatiana Dress ($122), with it’s mix of leopard and zebra print set against a grey, white, and blue background.
Looking for a more daring way to mix the safari trend into your look? Check out these two tops from Forever 21. The Safari Open Back Tank ($15.80) is tiger up front and exotic in the back with a square cutout. Maybe leopard print is more your style. This Wild Mesh Top ($12.80) would go great with a pair of black skinny jeans. Want a little less back exposure? Throw a tank underneath.
Don’t be afraid to take the safari to the water with a hot swim suit. The Miraclesuit Animal Attraction—Escape Swimsuit ($170) will really keep them on their toes. If pythons are more your thing, check out this Vince Camuto Safari Mamba Skin Tunic Cover-Up ($99). Get ready to own the sun!
Safari-inspired bold jewelry can bring just the right amount of edginess to almost any look. This Blu Bijoux Tiger Safari Ring ($38) is pure eye candy. If that’s a little too vicious for you, try something like this ivory-colored Trina Turk’s Safari Pendant Necklace ($175). It’s simply faux chic. Daring to go a little more bold? The Citrine by the Stones Armor Double Cuff Bracelet ($48) might just distract your prey.
Don’t forget the accessories before you hit that dusty road. You never know what you’ll encounter. ModCloth has a few items you’ll be yearning for. The I Love Utility Backpack ($74.99) will hold the cell phone, compass, and bug spray. Protect those pretty eyes with these Desert Drive Sunglasses ($11.99), while keeping cool with the Safari, So Near Scarf ($17.99).
Wherever that expedition leads you this spring, take no prisoners and tame the urban jungle!
