The utilitarian, chic safari dress is a wardrobe staple and lends itself to numerous interpretations. In a tongue-in-cheek nod to its jungle explorer origins, I paired the khaki dress with cheetah print zipper accented oxfords. A tough chic, mixed metal choker by Karl Lagerfeld layered with silver and gold bead necklaces adds daytime luxe and a roomy monogram vintage Gucci satchel holds all the essentials for an urban hunt.
