Exotic safaris are trending in more ways than one this summer. Not only are we seeing a lot of tribal prints, earth tones and animal print, but the animals themselves are also coming out to play! Whether it’s a large tiger head taking center stage on a graphic tee or a playful graphic pattern, animals like zebras, elephants, giraffes and cheetahs are being spotted everywhere from Trina Turk, Alice + Olivia, Loeffler RandallAnthropologie, and even Forever21. Not crazy about the prints? A simple safari animal necklace or bangle is a fun way to accessorize with this trend!
