Animal print never goes out of fashion. If there’s anything new, it’s purely a matter of interpretation. The question isn’t about whether you should or shouldn’t own an animal print clothing item because every fashionista must own. The question therefore is, how do you wear it appropriately?
Don’t match animal print if it’s large
Matching colors and prints is very common in styling. However, not only does going too matchy create a trying hard obsolete way of styling, it’s considered a no no when it comes to animal prints. Rather choose only one part of your outfit for the wild look.
Only match animal print if it’s accessory
If you feel the urge to go matchy matchy, you can do so on your accessories provided they don’t clash. The key here is being minimal.
Tone your leopard print down
If your outfit is too wild, tone it down. If you wear leopard print tights for instance, you can tone down the print by wearing them with a top in the same color palette that blends but suppresses the strongest shade of your animal print.
Animal print and color clash
A new way to wear animal print is to team it with bright colors. Now, not everybody has the heart to apply this idea but it´s something worth trying. The key here is to go for only one single vibrant color. One color that is best to clash against the print, and is certain to stand out. There are many shades, create a match that would steal some attention from the print and tone it down.
Animal print teamed with another print
You can give two variants of animal prints (say zebra print and a leopard print) a good contrast by layering between the two prints a single colored pattern.
……….Do it with accessories
Wearing animal print accessories are a fun way to incorporate this trend if you cannot comfortably pull off animal print clothing items. So steal attention with any of these pieces but wear clothes in complementary colours.
