Make the Charleston streets your urban jungle this summer with tribal inspired style. Take a gander at any number of runway styles for this season and you’ll find wild animal prints and safari inspired frocks. Best of all, these styles won’t have you going broke since they’re under $25.

Old Navy Safari Shirt Dress

Safari Dress : A favorite of many a designer this season, this style is perfect for a hot Charleston day. Pair with gladiator sandals and you’re set for a day in the Charleston jungle. (My Pick: Old Navy Safari Dress, $22.50…but hurry, they’re on sale!)

Forever 21 Watercolor Bangle

Wooden Bangles : Go natural with big, bold bracelets painted or stained in every color. Pair them with almost everything for an instant shot of tribal chic. (My Pick: Forever21 wooden bangles, $4.50)

Wet Seal Zebra Satin Top

Animal Print Tops: Zebra, leopard, or any other creature…animal print is all over with the tribal trend. However, a smart fashionista remembers a little leopard goes a long way…so keep the print to one bold item. Pair a top with fitted jeans and bright heals, you’ll be the best dressed beast in the jungle. (My Pick: Wet Seal Zebra Satin Top, $18.50)

American Eagle Liddy Canvas Wedge

Cork Wedges : Perfect during the summer to keep your heals from sinking into the ground as you traverse the savanna…or Marion Square. The natural cork tone on a wedge gives a more natural, casual feel and can be paired with everything from shorts to dresses. (My Pick: American Eagle Liddy Canvas Wedge at Payless, $22.99)

Makeup : Finish your jungle inspired look with warm and natural toned makeup. Try a smoky brown smudged on your lids with dark brown eyeliner below your bottom lashes only Go for a natural toned mouth and use just a swish of clear gloss to keep you looking natural (My Picks: Covergirl Eye Enhancers 4-Kit Shadows in Coffee Shop, $3.99, and Covergirl Perfect Blend Eyeliner in Black Brown, $3.99, Boots No7 High Shine Lip Gloss in Flirt, $7.99)
