The height of fashion


I might be sticking my neck out here but I think giraffes are the next big thing in fashion. Don’t believe me? Just take a look at some of these.

I would obviously recommend viewing this post using Safari.

Giraffe Print Scarf £6 from ASOS

First up we have this lovely ASOS scarf. It’s an absolutely gorgeous colour and has great big giraffe silhouettes roaming all over it. What’s not to love? The news just keeps getting better though as it’s currently in the sale for £6. Your neck will thank you.

Kissing Giraffe Pleated Skirt £38 from Topshop

Topshop appear to have the monopoly on giraffe prints (seriously, go type ‘giraffe’ into their search) but I think this skirt is the pick of the bunch. I mean, the giraffes are kissing (insert necking joke here)! on your skirt! THAT’S SO CUTE. It does look quite short but you could just throw it on over leggings and head out on your merry way.

Giraffe Print Top £25.99 from Zara

I am a big fan of this giraffe top from Zara. It looks lovely and light, so perfect for summer wear,  it looks super flattering and the different colours and prints on the giraffes make it that bit more unusual.  A perfect top to throw on with jeans and head to the pub in.

Bronti Giraffe Print Shirt £70 from Tommy Hilfiger

Now this is what you call a Fun Shirt. I was pretty much sold on the yellow giraffes alone but then I noticed that the collar and cuffs have their own jazzy giraffe print! That’s almost too fun. Put your feet up Tommy Hillfiger, you’ve earned it.

Black Sheer Giraffe Tights £8.50 from Topshop

See what I mean about Topshop? How great are these tights?!! I am currently stuck in a polka dot tight rut and I think these might just be the tights to break the habit. I haven’t managed to track them down in store just yet but I’m off to London this week so it’s really only a matter of time. In my head they will go with absolutely everything I own. Fingers crossed the reality meets up to the expectation.

Afternoon Safari Pencil Skirt £98 from Anthropologie

Here’s Anthropologie showing us how to do the ‘sensible giraffe’. This skirt has a great shape that will really flatter. It’s a tad pricey but you could get away with wearing it all year round and would lend itself to work and play. And did I mention it has pockets? It has pockets.

Safari As I Know It Dress $49.99 (£34) from Modcloth

Goodness me Modcloth really do have something to suit every occasion don’t they? I constantly find myself completely overwhelmed by how many brilliant things they have. If only they weren’t so far away! This bubblegum pink dress is just another thing to add to my ever growing wishlist and just screams adorable.  I am loving the length, the belted waist and the choice of colours used for the giraffes, some of them even have little polka-dots!  The only down side is the keyhole design used on the back which means I would definitely be resort to wearing it with a cardigan most of the time.

Beatrice Dress London in Mustard £125.99 from Poppy

I am surely not the only person who often feels burning rage that they don’t make little girls clothes in adult sizes.  They always get the cutest stuff! Well, I shall be frustrated no more as I have now discovered possibly the great place on earth in Poppy. They make their own original storybook inspired outfits for children AND adults. In your face, pesky children. I literally squealed looking through all the adorable clothes on offer. All of the designs are based on the adventures of ‘Poppy’ who in this particular dress is seeing the sights of London whilst riding a giraffe (I know, right?). I really love it in mustard  but it does comes in other colours and is extremely versatile as you can wear it with the v neck at the front or back. Swoon.
