Marc by Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2011 Read-to-Wear collection stampeded on the runway as a brilliant safari spectacular. The clothes blared with vivid African hues and slouchy silhouettes. One outlandish, but fabulous, look paired a pumpkin-colored leopard-print top and harem pants patterned with racing gazelles. Leather accessories subtly bring the outfit to the top of the food chain.
But because gazelle-printed pants aren’t for everyone, make this look wearable by turning to toned-down tribal patterns that use the punchy orange, red, and teal color palette. Ground the look by adding neutral brown and black pieces and pairing it all with solid accessories. Passers-by are sure to roar in approval.
