How to Wear Animal Print

Animal print can be a tough fashion beast to tame. Get it right and your look screams feminine toughness with a touch of class. Get it wrong and you can look cheap and tacky.

Follow these simple suggestions to add this stylish print to your wardrobe for a look that never dates.

Quality Pieces


Don't skimp on quality when it comes to animal prints. The cheaper pieces tend to have prints that can look tacky very easily. Investing in top quality pieces will not only ensure a better fit that will flatter your figure but that it will last for seasons to come. The prints on quality pieces always have more style that will make any outfit look elegant and on trend.

A Little Goes A Long Way


Choosing one statement piece in an animal print gives a glamorous and classy look to your outfit. Too much can quickly look tacky and cheap. Remember to not commit the fashion faux pas of ever mixing different species of animal prints. Another point to remember with your one piece is that a looser style always appears more elegant. Tight and revealing animal print instantly looks tasteless.

Be Bold


By nature animal print is a bold and daring choice. Why not take that one step further by either choosing your print in an exciting colour or mixing your print with something eye-catching. Leopard print is actually a neutral ( think khaki, black and white elements) so why not team it with some colour! Bright red, pastel coral or emerald green are some of our faves.
