I’ve probably owned about 6 Safari dresses in my life, starting with cute brown cotton one with matching belt my mom bought me in grade 3, up to the the tan Torch Burch shirtdress I bought this summer and am wearing in this photo here.>>>
I’ve had Safari dresses in linen, I’ve had them in silk, I’ve had them in colors like tan , orange, and white. I’ve had them with buttons, zippers, rope belts, leather belts, and in mini and maxi lengths. So why do I keep on going back to this same fashion look?
…Because it’s a classic..kind of like a trench coat, it always look crisp and fresh, the shirtdress style suits my body and it’s so easy and comfy to wear. Plus, Safari dresses are very forgiving if you have a few pounds you want to hide here or there.
This summer the Safari dress is as popular as ever. Add some strappy sandals with chunky high heels or a pair of gladiator flats in brown, tan or gold and you’ve got a fashion hit on your hands. A couple of wide wooden bangle bracelets or a chunky tribal/ethnic style necklace with big stones and a rough metallic finish also enhances the look. Here’s a few great Safari dress options we found in the shopping jungle out there:
