So what we go out
That's how it's supposed to be
Living young and wild and free
Oh, what a joy to be young, wild, and free! No matter your age, we embrace all three states from the inside out. Age is but a number, and style is eternal, so run, don't walk on the wild side! These wild wovens are anything but stale. Snake, lizard, and leather paired with safari silks and animal prints add lightweight lush texture to any summer look. Keep scrolling to see our fave five wild and woven picks.
Raffia and snake are a bold, unexpected combo that create wild texture in this woven jacket by Amen Wardy. The slim strips of snake wind through a boxy raffia cage, forming an airy body lined in sheer organza that's more downtown than country- but can take you in either direction.
Romantic ruffles in sheer silk are safari-ready when paired with the perfect leopard print and straw hat. This ruffed and cuffed DKNY poet blouse in chiffon brings balance to the wildest of prints and textures, with a hint of 90s notstalgia. We'd add this surprise staple into our summer rotation immediately.
Nothing beats lizard and leather for a wildly woven combo. This luxe, oversized woven leather bag by Judith Leiber is by nature a rebellious piece that's surprisingly subtle for the sum of its parts. From afar, this large bucket bag appears to be straw, but upon inspection is soft, supple, and meticulously put together.
What better way to free your wild child than with a sheer mesh minidress from Jean Paul Gaultier? Billowy balloon sleeves, a ruffled collar, and tunic-or-dress length helps alleviate all responsibilities while wearing. We'd add a flat-brimmed hat and straw tote, natch.
Gold leopard lamé is a Recess staple. For us, it's a neutral that goes with everything. This metallic leopard lamé blouse by Pauline Trigère has balloon sleeves, a high neck, and a nipped-in waist for the perfect silhouette to unleash your wild side.
