Get ahead of the stampede this season and work the trend in an urban safari inspired outfit! One of the hottest trends of SS14; these African explorer inspired styles were spotted all over the catwalks from Diane Von Furstenberg’s luxe gold shirt dresses and animal prints, to Orla Kiely’s preppy traveller girls in khakis and brightly coloured animal motifs exploring their safari adventure styled set!
The key to this classic trend is to combine neutral earthy tones – khakis, camel, sand and green, with funky tribal and animal prints like snakeskin, zebra and leopard. And to update the look for the new season, why not introduce a cheeky flash of colour into the mix! This is the perfect trend to work for pregnancy; with so many styling elements to mix and match with, you can go for an all out explorer style, or spice up a neutral outfit with a subtle hint of savanna chic.
Here are the five key pieces you’ll need this season to work the urban safari look:
Summer Slouchy Maternity Trousers
Our ultra flattering summer trousers are light, loose and easy to wear, and come in black, khaki or a stylish tribal print. These are an essential piece this season, and are perfect for working your safari chic look in the concrete jungle.
Style these super slimming trousers with a plain black top, gladiator sandals and some gold safari inspired accessories – we love this feathery gold necklace from Stella & Dot.
Linen Layering Maternity Top
Light linen layers will keep you cool in the hustle and bustle of the city just as well as they would on the African savanna, so our linen maternity top is a must have. It comes in soft ash grey or pastel peach – both of which look fabulous when paired with khaki!
Style this top with our next key piece: The Woven Maternity Shorts!
Woven Maternity Shorts
These high quality woven shorts will be the star of your summer wardrobe. Light and breezy, they fit comfortably under your bump for a perfect fit at every stage of pregnancy. Choose between classic black and cool khaki, and build up your summer safari ensemble.
Style them with a simple top, sandals and our Taupe Tie Maternity Cardigan for a look that says: “I am ready for adventure”. Accessorise with understated jewellery like Stella & Dot’s Wanderlust Triple Wrap Bracelet.
Summer Maternity Poncho
Our essential summer maternity poncho is fabulously loose fitting and comes in two super safari shades – khaki and sand. Loose and floaty styles tap into the more bohemian side to the safari trend, and this romantic maternity top is specifically designed to flatter your changing curves.
Maternity Trench Coat
Bringing out the more structured military vibes of the trend, our Maternity Trench Coat in a classic camel hue will be the perfect piece to complete all of your urban safari outfits. With a self tie belt to define your figure and chic military style detailing at the cuffs and shoulders, this is a must have piece for your summer wardrobe.
Slip this coat on to complete any of your urban safari ensembles, or wear it over other styles to give a subtle nod to the trend.
With these 5 key pieces in your summer style arsenal, you’ll be ready for any adventures that come your way!
