Safari style Playsuit from River Island


Many of the playsuit styles inspiring the high street over the past few seasons have relied heavily on fifties influence, but there's plenty of room for sixties and seventies interpretations of the piece. This Smart Camel Playsuit from River Island provides that option with classic chic.

The safari influence on the style provides an ideally sharp and structural element, in keeping with later sixties and early seventies looks. The high waistline, wide leg shorts and gold hardware combine to create a perfect silhouette, while the dark camel shade keeps things classic and timeless.
