How to wear animal prints

How to wear animal prints


I never thought I would be one to wear animal prints. It's often portrayed as risky and something not everyone call pull off, but I think you can pull it off if you go about it in the right way. Over the last few years, animal print is something I have started wearing a lot more, and if worn in the right way to suit you, it can look great. Here are my tips on how to wear animal prints.

Find a subtle print


If you're like me and often play it safe, then choosing a subtle animal print is a good start. This dress I'm wearing has a small detailed leopard print and you can only really see it when you're close up. It's not too noticeable that I'm actually wearing leopard print from far away, so something like this is perfect if you want to test out how you feel in animal prints.

Keep the rest of your outfit simple


As the animal print will be the focus of your outfit whatever you decide to choose, it's important not to detract from that. So I would recommend choosing shoes and accessories that are simple and neutral in colour. In this look, I've gone for black heels from Marks and Spencer and my grey DKNY handbag. This ensures that the focus remains on the leopard print dress.

Stick to one leopard print item


My personal advice would be to just wear one piece of leopard print in your outfit. For example, a leopard print top paired with jeans or in this case, a dress. This will ensure that you've introduced the animal print look into your outfit, but you've not gone too overboard.
