The safari trend isn’t about all about khaki pants and drab hats. This season do the safari trend right by adding wonderful safari-inspired fashions and accessories to your wardrobe, from animal-print bags and shoes to African jewelry.
Start out with a central piece like a safari jacket or dress and then build around it. This Diane von Furstenberg safari shirtdress is a good example. It features elements of safari style with a feminine silhouette.
Animal print handbags
Animal print or snakeskin handbags are essential to the safari look. A leopard print clutch, giraffe pattern tote or other animal print bag can be your statement piece.
