The perfect trend to accompany animal-print experimentation? Utility. If stripes/spots/scale motifs are as dangerous to you as the wildlife that inspires them, then neutral tones in relaxed shapes bring the safari feels in a more low-key way. Take the outfit above. It’s got a pocket-laden gilet and shorts – more pockets, in fact, than you'll probably ever need. The utility life lends itself nicely to a streetwear-ready edge, so team with an adidas long-sleeved top to pick up some logo points, finishing it off with tonal-AF Nike kicks
And now for the best part: with a neutral base as strong as this, you can easily experiment with leopard print via a 90s-inspired bucket hat. A small injection of the trend (when we said beginner, we meant it), but a great place to start. Now that wasn't so scary was it? You’ll be rocking that co-ord in no time.
