Sunkissed safari style captures the essence of effortless and untamed beauty of nature beautifully. The wild, sporty and adventurous flavor of this style fits every free spirited explorer in us.
From perfect exotic summer getaways and casual city cruising to breezy summer night parties, this adventurous style is versatile enough to play with and pairs well with other styles without losing its raw and effortless edge.
Inspired by Farfetch’s Safari Chic Style Guide, here is my ultimate Safari Chic list filled with this season’s dreamy and wild safari style essentials to inspire you to get on a more adventurous track and set a mood for your wildest and dreamiest summer.
These pieces are super functional with a high comfort factor, versatile, stylish, enduring and sustainable. Natural fabrics coupled with safari inspired prints, details and colors are enduring, chic and extremely versatile to pair with other styles. They are also easy on the planet and better for our health which is always a plus. Having been on many safari trips, from real jungles in India to man-made safari destination in Canada, this list is based on real experiences 🙂 –
Lightweight Shirt Dress – Lightweight shirt dresses are perfect summer essentials with a high safari vibe to it. Natural fabrics such as cotton or linen help your body breathe and keep you cooler while lighter colors reflect light to elevate your body’s comfort factor to another level. Try: Dosa Safari Shirt Dress
Wide Brim Hat – Hats protect your face from sunburns, keep your head cooler so you don’t get dizzy, and inject a cool vibe to your look, making it a ‘must have’ item on your list. Try: Filu Hats Safari Hat.
Chic Lightweight Jewelry – Jewelry pieces are easy add-ons that not only elevate your look instantly but also a great way to highlight the styling theme of your look. You want to keep the pieces simple because heavy accessories and hot weather don’t mix well. A simple metal choker is on point without adding heaviness to the look. Try: Valentino Garavani Giraffe Choker
Sandals and Shoes – Low heeled criss-cross slides, strappy sandals or flatworm shoes with a touch of natural organic textures and wild prints are perfect to add chic factor to your overall look while also being functional. You might have to walk on rough unpaved path so this is something you might want to consider while packing footwear. Try: Valentino Garavani Gladiator Sandals
Safari Coat – Coat in natural fabrics, safari inspired details and color palette is another ‘must have’ on the list. Try: Balmain Wrap Style Front Jacket, Dusan Belted Short Sleeve Coat, Figue Safari Jacket
Solid Separates – Skirts, wide leg pants, shorts and tops in solid safari hues, natural fabrics, favorite on-trend details and body flattering silhouettes are easy essentials to mix and match. Try: MSGM-Embellished Palazzo Trousers and Societe Anonyme Asymmetric Hem Oversized Top
Printed Separates – Skirts, pants, shorts and tops in safari themed prints, natural fabrics, favorite on-trend details and body flattering silhouettes are again easy essential pieces to mix and match. Try: Nº21 Jungle Print Skirt, Muveil Jungle Print Boxy Blouse, Rochas Giraffe Print Boxy Top
Sunglasses – Another ‘must have’ piece for any summer trip. Pairing your favorite shaped frames in wild prints, safari hues and gold metals with your outfits can elevate your safari themed looks to the another level. Try Dolce Gabbana Cat Eye-frame Sunglasses
