How to Look Safari Chic

Safari chic is more than just a fad; it’s no longer just reserved for trips to zoos and national parks. Unleash your wild side by following these tips on how to get the safari chic look.

Be an Animal

The easiest way to achieve the stylish safari chic look is to choose an animal print garment.  Zebra stripes and leopard prints are highly-recommended, but if you’re not a fan of screaming designs, then go for muted, toned-down animal prints.

Tone it Down

In case you end up choosing an animal print attire, you can make the look more interesting with streamlined pieces. Tailored jackets and crisp white shirts are just some of the pieces that can make your safari chic style look more elegant. Stay close to the lovely earth palette to preserve the safari look.

Go Minimal

A safari chic style can be more casual than formal, so if you decide to take it to work, then go minimal with the rest of the attire. A sleek black trousers or nude pumps can transform your adventurous look into a high-fashion style.

Feminize it

Accessorize Sparingly

The safari chic look is not just about wilderness clothes. You can still achieve this style by utilizing a simple, safari-inspired accessory. A printed clutch, exotic necklace, or skinny belt can infuse some safari style into your boring or monotonous outfit.

Neutralize it

Since animal prints govern the safari chic trend, it’s best if you don’t go matchy with the embellishments. Should you decide to accessorize your look, choose simple styles and modest designs.
