Wear ME Now: African Earth


Published April 13, 2010

It’s especially in time of soupy, springtime rains that deep jewel tones remind me of African earth and fauna. For this weekend look, I’ve mixed of patterns: the slight camouflage feel of the T-shirt and the chic 1970s all-over pattern in the shorts remixed with a clunky sandal and a perfect pair of explorer/aviator sunglasses. Top it off with a colonial touch: a sturdy and soft cap that’s a new take on the straw hat. Bring a bit of the African jungle to this urban jungle.
