Best Bets Daily: Wednesday

Worn to Be Wild

Posted May 24, 2008
Tribal, global, ethnic—these are all key words for this spring’s obsession with exotic inspiration. But overdo it, and you can end up looking like an extra from Joe Versus the Volcano. This is where accessories come in handy. Take these etched bangles from Cara Couture—the brown and natural pattern is very modern-day Karen Blixen and will look best when paired with similarly safarilike colors (think khaki and white). So go ahead, take a little walk on the wild side, but please tame your desire to go all Out of Africa.
