Fashion On Safari

Posted by tbaker |

Goodwill HuntingBy Emily Smith

Interested in trying an updated Girl Scout meets Benetton look? How about a no-holds-barred Tigress of the Outback ensemble? Achieving safari style is easy to do when starting with a khaki/olive base and piling on the ethnic/tribal/outback-approved accessories.

As seen Here: A simple, cotton, olive frock hemmed short and the edges left raw is topped with a lightweight orange silk jacket to add texture. Layered vintage coin necklaces, brass cuff, rope and leather belt, and suede platforms add dimension and pull the worldly look together. Voila! You are ready for your next romp in the wild!
