This fall animal print is marked as one of the hottest trends. The resurgence in popularity for this classic print has many of you asking how to wear it.
Check out some of the questions I’ve received and learn how to make animal print work for you.
“I like the way animal print looks on other people, but it’s just too bold for me. How can I pull it off without feeling or looking silly?”
Right now animal print is out there in a big way. You can find it in many different styles and prints. If you are a little shy about wearing a bold pattern such as animal print, I recommend starting with a shoe. An animal print shoe is a must-have in my closet and is a great way to add visual interest to an otherwise so-so outfit.
Consider these Michael Kors flats. Pair them with your favorite jeans and almost any color top. Remember, you want your animal print shoe to be a fun pop to your outfit so don’t choose a boring brown or black top. Instead go for your favorite red, deep purple, pink, or slate blue blouse. Ta-dah, you’ve made an interesting and put together outfit simply by adding an animal print shoe.
“I love dresses but am hesitant to purchase one in animal print for fear someone else will wear the same one.”
This is a very common fear. However you can easily make your animal print dress your own. For starters change up your shoes. This dress could be paired with a black heel, but everyone else is going to do that. So throw in some color. Go for a red heel. If that’s too bold choose something in a neutral that matches your skin tone. If a black heel is what you already own, you can add personal style with a pop of color in your accessories.
You may also want to consider pairing your dress with a cardigan or jacket.
“What are some subtle ways to wear animal print this season?”
A great way to participate in the animal print trend in a very subtle way is with your undergarments. Everything about your style creates a total package so even your undergarments can make a statement that only you have to know about.
Use accessories completely unrelated to your clothing to make a style statement. Pull your laptop out of your classic black work bag in a great animal print protective case for instant style you don’t have to wear.
No matter what your personal style, size, shape, or budget you can find a way to participate in a trend you love—sometimes you just have to think outside the box.
