Check out the model in the photo. Her one key safari piece is the fab linen and cotton blazer from Banana Republic
. Notice this brown jacket tapers at the waist and then flares out a bit at the hips. The cinched waist is great because it really creates that coveted hourglass shape. It also helps create curves if you don’t have them.
Anything safari-esque on the bottom would be a little too Jane of the jungle… again moderation… so the perfect complement to the jacket is a simple pair of white capris. Make sure when you’re buying a capri pant; it tapers at your ankle, the smallest part of your leg. Capris that hit your calves highlight a wider part of your leg, which is less flattering.
To finish off the sophisticated safari ensemble, I put her in some standout brown and gold accessories, and a great pair of wedges
in a complementary brown tone. Wearing wedges is the perfect way to add height without sacrificing comfort.
The best part of this look is that it’s always in style. It’s a classic that you can sport year after year.
If you liked this outfit, you can find it at banana republic at either “The Shops at La Cantera
” or “North Star Mall
