designeroffduty 's Thoughts:

You can always rely on spring to bring the safari trend back around. Some seasons the perspective is literal, using camouflage and leaf prints. Other seasons the perspective is more utilitarian, bringing back cargo pockets, flowing linens, and belted waists.

The latest Spring runways inspired me to abandon certain things in my closet, including a lingering pair of skinny cargo chinos. But it also inspired me to revive this old Marc Jacobs dress (which I’ve nearly parted with on several occasions).

I bought this dress a few years ago, while I was still living in Austin. Spring safari trends were very chino and utility oriented, but this dress felt embellished enough to be work appropriate. I hadn’t exercised it very much since relocating to San Francisco, but there were a few combinations on spring runways that inspired me to do something a little different with it: the first was, obviously, the safari trend, and the second was the 70′s revival of tunics over pants. While this combination isn’t exactly on par with the flowing bohemian styles of the 70′s, I thought it better to pair a relatively fitted dress over a more tailored trouser.
