It is a jungle out there, so why not showcase your wild side with an eye-catching animal print? Whether you prefer bold leopard or graphic zebra, there’s only one pattern to purchase this season. Here are our tips on how to wear this statement story…
Do: Flatter Your Body Shape
The trick to making animal prints work is to wear them so they accentuate your best features. If you have an hourglass waist, a snakeskin belt over a plain dress will complement your frame; if you have great legs, try a statement mini skirt to make them look fabulous.
Animal print may be all the rage, but it can look a little distasteful its worn head-to-toe. Go neutral with your shoes and other accessories to ensure you don’t go overboard. In fashion it’s all about ‘less is more’.
Fashion is all about reinventing trends and finding out what works for you. So be a bit adventurous and try mixing and matching fabrics. Understated knitted dresses can be livened up with the addition of accessories in zebra, leopard or tiger print; if you are wearing a printed dress, why not opt for glossy black belt, shoes or clutch?
Never mix two prints that clash - wear a single print at a time as too many spots or stripes will appear trashy. Remember the ‘less is more’ rule, always.
Do not: Try to be too Sexy
With animal prints, looking sexy is only a matter of attitude, but remember to avoid lace, diamantes, and other add-ons that make it look like a Halloween costume. Just pair this trend with an edgy attitude and some simple accessories and you are ready to go!
