The Copycat

Remember that 'Gentleman Safari' part of my Spring/Summer Trend Report?
Well, I've found another design that seamlessly blends into that look, and just looking at the clothes makes me think of sultry summer days and blissful leisure time on a yacht's
deck (or in my case, someone's backyard deck.)
And I'll definitely be keeping this look in the back of my mind on a next shopping excursion, I suggest you do the same.
I'm talking about this fantastic look by 3.1 Phillip Lim.
The sand silk front cardigan paired with the light grey cargo shorts works wonderfully, and the large sunglasses add a finishing touch.
However, I know python is also a trend right now (quoted directly from French Vogue editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld), but I'm just not feeling it, and henceforth would not wear those shoes with this outfit. Python shoes just bring images of P.I.M.P. to my mind, and that's not a look I'm deliberately going for. Anyway, thank you Phillip Lim!
