Since you're going for a nature-type theme, go with nature-like materials. Fur, leather, fake leaves... Compare the materials to the shorts and scarf before you settle on a design, definitely. I'd suggest a long or cropped top, with a v- or inverted-v bottom. It makes it flow better than a flat-bottomed top.
