The Daily Ant hosts a weekly ant fashion series, Style Saturdays. This fifth installment is by our Fashion Correspondant Kathryn Pogin, who is also an Executive Producer of our popular Philosophy Phridays series. Enjoy!


There’s been a bit of insantsitive fashion in the news this week — not more Kushner couture-controversy but a bit of an instagram blow-up. This week we’ll talk about how to stand out for the right reasons instead, with a cool color palette and some brilliant details. To be sure, there’s only so far myrmecological magic can take you — ant-themed accessories aren’t like fashion honey to be paired with just anything for a sweeter look (what am I, an apiologist?). Rather, it’s generally better to avoid wearable slurs all around. Be ostantatious, not offensive!

With that in mind, this week’s looks emphasizes complimentary coordination — greens, blues, and gold come together for a look that’s funky, formicid cool. Platform t-strap sandals take you to (not quite giraffe, but) new heights, while distressed jeans, and modern Grey Ant sunglasses keep the look dressed down. An arboreal ant clutch stands ready to hold any of your essantials you might need to keep close at hand.
