Safari dress-A timeless piece for the wardrobe

Safari style dresses have been in style for decades now and come into trend every now and then. I bagged a Morgan safari dress this summer at the boot sale and as we are experiencing an Indian Summer, I thought I'd wear it

My dress was only £2, but its a keeper for future summers and works well by itself or with leggings


What timeless classic do you enjoy wearing?

Oh, I love this dress. I'm looking for something similar myself!

I wear a lot of classics, such as trenchcoats and LBD's. I think they're classics for a reason... :)

That dress looks great on you. The colour is a good match. I love wrap dresses. They are classic and look good on just about everyone.

I love the safari look! I had a seersucker safari dress that I loved back in high school. It wasn't Halston but I do remember buying it from JC Penney! It was a great dress and a great look. You look MAhhvelous in yours by the way!

the safari dress is such a classic...only wish I could pull it off (with my skin colouring, it would be wrong, wrong, wrong). Still, I can admire it on you. Like it with the tights but I reckon it's be killer without.

Do share when you wear it without....helllloooo Carrie ;)

Have a great one bella

Oooo I never thought to wear that with leggings. Excellent choice! Might be cool with some animal print heels! Grrrrr! I love timeless classics too. I think we all need a great pair of black trousers, a pair of nice, classic black heels and boots and always jeans (though what a pan in the ass to find!). Obviously you have found millions of timeless pieces because your vintage has remained fashionable! Well done Sharon!

Loving SJP's look in that dress... but then I love most things she wears! Your safari dress is great and I had one just like it in black that I wore with leggings loads. Sadly it just bit the dust as it wasn't very good quality. The next one I buy will be so that it can go the distance!

Shopaholic said...

luvverly! that colour is good on you too.

timeless classic for me, would have to be jeans, white t and black blazer.

Great find, Sharon! I love safari dresses too. They are so classic and chic without being too stuffy. My timeless piece is a white button-up (boring, but so good!).
