Summer Style Solutions: How To Do Safari Chic

Summer Style Solutions: How To Do Safari Chic

Looking hot (and keeping cool) in the heat doesn’t have to be as time-consuming as cataloguing the latest catwalk looks and siphoning through this season’s micro-trends.

ICYMI: Summer Style Solutions: How To Wear White?

Certain styles always look chic in summer, whether they fall on a fashion editor’s wish-list or not. For the urbanites among us, safari chic is a sophisticated way of looking fresh and seasonal, while maintaining a sharp, tailored silhouette. Military-style detailing and camouflage prints can be softened with white trousers (if the temperatures really rise, ditch your denims for loose-fitting separates), while classic tan leather accessories will transform a look that may be too urban into nicely upmarket. Sleeveless jackets are a great option here too (the beige woven version from River Island Studio marries smart and safari beautifully). Choose pieces in breathable fabrics such as quality linens and cotton mixes.
