Women’s Safari clothing by Ralph Lauren Spring 2015


Safari style clothing is far from new but this spring, it’s back in a fresh and modern way. How do you wear it?  Try:

    • Monochromatic Safari – all one color or slightly varying shades of one color make a strong and slimming statement.
    • Safari Inspired Clothing with some shine– Safari has never been so glamorous.
    • Suede Safari – This is a new twist to have suede in Spring
    • Classic neutrals mixed (taupe, tan, brown, olive, black)
    • Neutral Safari pieces mixed with bold brights like yellow and orange even blue – this makes it fashion forward
    • wide belts

  • If a safari dress you like is too short, wear it with black leggings.
  • A natural wedge or flatform in rope or cork is a natural fit for Safari Style
  • Strappy sandals with chunky high heels work with the safari vibe
  • Gladiator sandals ( tall are newest) in brown, tan or gold are perfect too.

The Jewelry

  • Statement necklaces that look tribal – big stones, rough metallic finish
  • Dangly earrings with rough, imperfect colored beads and hammered metals
  • Chunky and ethnic style metal cuffs and rope bracelets

The Bag

  • Nothing formal. Soft and slouchy is good or a casual, sporty tote
  • A cross shoulder strap bag like a messenger bag also works
  • Leather or canvas looks right with this jungle adventurer style

Dresses like these above are just one type of safari clothes for women. There are many more wardrobe pieces you can combine to create this look.

Do you like Safari dresses? Have you ever owned one? I have owned about 6 in my life always a favorite!

  1. I actually love this look. I think it is classic. I wear loads of olive. I think it is such a flattering colour on everyone.


  2. I love the safari style, classic it has always been. Love the colours and ideas here

    Any of those dresses shown as well as what you are sporting looks good on you! This style can be smart or casual. I would wear any of those to work and look better dressed than most of the team during summer. What happens to people’s brain during the summer months? Flip flops, halter necks or shorts in a professional environment……are you serious?

    • Hi Lesley,
      Good point. Casual work dress is one thing, but in the summer some women dress like they are going to the beach instead of work. It’s important to maintain a professional appearance throughout the year. First impressions do count when you are meeting clients or in contact with the public, and the way you dress also affects your attitude and productivity. Cheers, Deborah

  4. I bought a safari style olive green vest that I thought I’d love but I’m having trouble working it into an outfit. I guess a simple white tank might be good but I’ll have to buy one as I never seem to wear simple white tanks. It’s so hot here most of the year that I don’t layer much (which is why I thought maybe a vest would work). I do own white t-shirts (fitted). And I think I might wear it in fall with a long sleeve white or black T – but any other suggestions for a very warm weather outfit featuring the vest?

    • Hi Kelly,
      I would like to see a photo of the vest to see the style. Is it a little bit boxy? If so, that might be why it is hard to put something with it.
      Send in a photo and I will give you some ideas!
