Africa's Calling. There is no doubt about the influence of the desert and Africa in the latest shows. I don't see anything bad in adding exoticism and excitement in our fashion world. There is something adventurous in every outfit that is showcased here below. Please welcome desert style trends and real desert queens for this summer season. If your favorites are femininity and mystery, then these looks are meant for you to observe and get inspired.
First things that comes in my mind, when I see these outfits is functionality and comfortability. These exotic edge looks come with distinct tough vibe and urban junge touch that makes you a bit wild in this modern world.
Desert queen key elements for this summer
This summer, desert inspired style comes with functionality and practical wear ability. Many designers offer modern looks that include structured dresses, jumpsuits, belted jackets, slim cargo-like pants and shorts that come with minimalistic touch. Every piece looks tough and edgy, yet with feminine sensibility, every detail is worked out to the smallest details. Africa inspired outfits come with relaxed, flowy silhouettes, usually are made of lightweight fabrics and in sandy tones with khaki colors. If you've decided to wear this style trend, then I advise you to put in the first place functional vibes and to mix safari borrowed elements with military influenced detailing.
Why don't you add light layers!
Another way how you can wear this trend is to wear light layers that evoke functional character and still look fashionable and polished. Safari layers are inspired by Africa, where are high rise temperatures, so practical side is very important, yet nowadays they are meant for fashion expression and showcasing wild spirit trend.
Feminine VS. masculine accents
Soft natural colors against shades of neutrals, like khaki and white can sometimes be mixed with bold pops of orange, this will add a perfect feminine/masculine touches. As you already noticed, desert style trend offers plenty of alternatives, like tailored masculine elements with flowing silhouettes.

The beauty look meant for desert style
In order to keep the look relevant and as close as possible to its natural vibe, try complementing the dessert queen theme by using eye shadows in earthy tones and lipsticks in light pinks. Go light on the mascara and accent the cheeks with a touch of bronze blush. In terms of hair, opt for something fresh and unexpected by borrowing inspiration from the bohemian side knots seen at Nicholas K for spring season.
