Year after year, season after season, trends fall in and out of fashion. They come in with a bang and exit with the speed of Heidi Klum stomping her last few strides down the catwalk. With confusion around what’s in and what’s out, sometimes I wonder: are trends worth the investment? The answer I’ve come across lately is no, unless they are “trends” condusive to your personal style asthetic. Enter the Safari trend.
When I think of Safari Chic my mind instantly goes to crisp, clean neutrals, pops of brights, raw materials like straw and hemp, cargo pants, bold, wooden accessories, animal prints, big, untamed hair, sun-kissed skin and metallic eyes and nails. I love everything about these words and looks. Like many of you, my personal style is eclectic. Maybe it’s my love of the wild and animals or my ability to make simple things shine but Safari has always felt like home to me.
Knowing Safari Chic is back for another season fills my heart with joy (although I would rock this style be it in or out). As I mentally scan my 2 closets at home, I realize I’m not quite as vested in this trend as I would like to be for the rapidly approaching spring season. Check out some pieces I’m looking into purchasing and as always, if you have any suggestions, fill me in!
