Last week we went over ‘glam safari’ pieces and explored the different colors that make up this more romantic version of the safari trend. This week we’re exploring safari themed accessories. When you think of safari accessories you probably think of round, very British looking hats or mosquito netting (joke!) or things like wooden bangles, beaded necklaces and bracelets.
While traditional safari pieces have their place, I wanted to bring this style up to date with things like tassels, simple textured gold pieces, and sandals in safari style colors. As long you maintain that relaxed desert-oasis style you have a lot freedom with safari accessories, from an animal print scarf, to natural and neutral hats and belts. The tassel trend in particular is really fun because it brings color, texture, and some funkiness to a piece of jewelry. Overall safari style accessories are pretty versatile. They can dress up a very casual outfit like jeans and a t-shirt and not feel out of place, or dress down a fancier spring/summer dress for evening and give it a little extra flavor.
