Available in a Zebra and Jaguar print, these shoes will add safari inspired sophistication to any look.
3. Straw Bolero, Melvill & Moon UK
Now this is what I’m talking about, what better name to include in this article than the ‘retro Safari brand’ themselves. Melvill & Moon manufacture high-end Safari furniture and accessories and are now stocking in the UK.
The Straw Bolero is perfect for garden parties in the countryside or rooftop drinks in the city.
4. Jacquard Safari Blazer, Ralph Lauren

This extraordinarily elegant and eye-catching blazer was inspired by the classic safari jacket that would be worn on expeditions.
The quality and precision that goes in to Ralph Lauren pieces is simply beautiful; the authentic detailing and signature buttons makes this a wardrobe essential that you will wear all-year round.
 5. Signature Pyjama Set, Desmond & Dempsey
Sleep stylish... because why not? In today’s fashion, this gorgeous pyjama set by Desmond & Dempsey could easily be worn as a relaxed two-piece, or a stand-alone blouse paired with linen shorts.
The detail in the Soleia Print is exquisite and it can be said that Khaki defines the Safari trend. 
Plus, you know what they say, “always wear pretty pyjamas, you never know who you will meet in your dreams!”
