It takes only a quick change to go from day to evening
in chic city-safari style
The bazaars and sweeping grasslands of northern Africa are some of Ralph Lauren’s most enduring inspirations. This year, the inclusion of sleek, city-appropriate details makes it possible to channel his safari-bound heroine by daylight and after dark. Start with Blue Label in the morning. A soft knit top with feminine accents, such as jersey ruffles and crocheted fringe, balances the rusticity of a denim pant or linen skirt.
Add an easy layer, like a patchwork wrap or camel-colored moto jacket, to keep you warm both in air-conditioned interiors and on the street. As the sun sets, slip into one of Black Label’s sleek and sexy signature dresses. The sharp silhouette of the dress contrasts boldly with its desert-inspired shade, while a hip-slung belt and spare jewelry add depth. The look is modern and refined yet hearkens back to ancient Saharan dunes. Whether you’re on safari or in the city, you can shift from day to night by slipping into a new dress—it’s as easy as switching on a lamp.
