This spring, head for the outback – or at least the wilderness of your favorite e-retailers, all of whom have gone wild (literally) for spring. The hallmarks of this trend are neutral colors (keep an eye peeled for anything khaki), light fabrics, and clean lines. And lest you fear looking too utilitarian, this spring’s safari is in search of style as well as comfort.
Try the Trend:
A buttoned sundress is given fashionable flair with an obi waistband that makes the look flirty instead of frumpy. A white shirt with pintuck detailing makes a sunny centerpiece out of a staple, and a pair of tailored khakis looks equally at home in the office or on a date. For a casual affair, cap the look with an olive jacket; for the office jungle, adapt the look with a clean collar and crisp tailoring.
