Streetview: Broadway, Soho, NYC
SIMPLE AND STYLISH. That's what Safari's look is all about. Whether you're looking for casual Friday ready-to-wear for the office or something to keep you looking fresh this weekend, Safari's ensemble is an easy way to elevate your style game while taking minimal risks.
You probably have most of the elements for this look in your closet already. A white button up dress shirt? Check. A shawl collar cardigan? Odds are good. A pair of black, slim-fit jeans? I hope so. The look here is all about how you wear it.
If you haven't gotten on the collar-buttoned-no-tie trend yet, feel free to hop onboard. Maybe you'll take some flack at your office, but honestly, it's about as mainstream a look as it gets now. So take the risk and button it all the way up. Next, throw your shawl collar cardigan over top. Keep the fit trim but relaxed, and make sure the shawl collar dips low enough to leave the shirt collar fully-exposed. This may be a small detail, but I really love how Safari brought the cuffs of his sweater completely up above the cuffs of his shirt. It's a unique twist that feels effortlessly stylish.
If it's casual Friday or the weekend, toss on a pair of dark skinny jeans and a pair of suede boots, and you'll be good to go. If it's any other weekday, swap out the jeans for a pair of grey (or gray-plaid) slacks and a pair of dress shows. Accessorize to your taste, and you'll be good to go.
Simple, right? Good. Now go out and have a stylish weekend!
