we’re continuing the week with our focus on separates, particularly on skirts. there are so many different types of skirts it’s impossible to feature them all, and almost as hard for me to narrow them down to the few i want to feature. yesterday, we featured a lovely pencil skirt from J.Crew—one of my favorites from this season. today, we’re taking a more classic approach and going safari chic. specifically, we’re talking how to wear a safari skirt—a foundational piece for any wardrobe.
i’m not stranger to safari chic. over the years, i’ve featured it extensively on the blog. whether it be a safari dress or British khaki shirt, i’m all about this look. today, we’re featuring a heritage cotton-linen safari skirt from Banana Republic. it’s a classic look and a perfect neutral foundation to build an outfit around. i’ve paired it with a black turtleneck top from Nordstrom, and to create visual interest, i’ve pulled in a pair of woven wedge sandals.
i’ve been crushing on turtleneck tops this summer. for those of you that don’t mind going sleeveless, they’re a great way to mix up the your summer top game. i’m sticking with black today, because i generally stick with neutrals when going safari chic—white, black, grey, and olive. if you’re not feeling the turtleneck top, go with a classic tee. you really can’t go wrong.
it’s been a while since we’ve done a fashion flash video, so i wanted to make sure to feature it. junior style put a new twist on it, so if you were a fan of the series or you’re looking for a little pick-me-up this hump day, definitely take a look for a 360 view of today’s OOTD.
