So for the past few years I have been in love with zebra print anything. And then came Keeping Up With the Kardashians and that totally escalated my love for animal print to a whole new level. I am pretty much obsessed. Seriously. I cannot have too many leopard print anything. Well actually, that’s not true, there is some gross leopard print stuff out there. But the point is, if it is animal print, I love it.
The thing about animal print, although wild, is it’s a nice burst of colour and print. If you don’t like floral things (they can tend to be a bit grandma) then go for some fun leopard or zebra, or even giraffe, I have been noticing an increasing amount of giraffe print clothing and accessories. Now with that being said, make sure you don’t go over the top and do head to toe animal print. It works wonders as a statement piece, not as a whole ensemble. Like take for instance, if you are doing a leopard print top, I would match it with some dark denim and nude pumps or black stilettos. If you do a zebra print dress, pair it some some neutral coloured shoes. As for accessories, make a statement while wearing an LBD with some leopard print heels or clutch. The pairings are endless.
You can have a lot of fun with animal print as there are many ways to wear it. Some of my favourite pieces are a zebra cardigan from Wet Seal (which goes with practically anything), a giraffe print clutch from H&M, leopard heels also from H&M, and a leopard print shirt with 3/4 length sleeves from Forever 21.
If you don’t have some wild patterns in your closet already, go out and pick up some key pieces. My favourite stores to shop for animal print anything are Forever 21 and H&M, not only do they have on-trend items but they are affordable as well. So what are you waiting for? Go wild!
