Why Your Wardrobe Needs Animal Print
Fiercer than florals, sexier than stripes and spots - timeless animal prints suit every age and style. From leopard to zebra to snake, here’s how to work the celeb go-to into your look…
A classic for any closet, animal print instantly elevates a look,and from Kate Moss, Jennifer Lopez to Kate Foley, the list of A-list animal print fans is endless. Simultaneously sexy, fierce and chic, luxe leopard, sassy snake and on-trend zebra prints feature on statement dresses, elegant separates, and outfit-finishing footwear this season. Timeless but always on trend, trust us when we say no wardrobe is complete without at least one hit of animal print.
WEAR FOREVER LEOPARD
Classed as a neutral, leopard print looks great with all colours and is seriously versatile. Every wardrobe should have a leopard print dress, and leopard midi skirts are having a moment right now – just add a black top for an easy-but-amazing outfit. We’ve also reinvented the go-to print in red – actress Gemma Oaten has already got our scarlet leopard dress, and there’s a top version too. Speaking of standout tops, try our leopard print take on this season’s ‘It’ shape, the Bardot. The leopard love-in doesn’t have to stop at the clothes either thanks to our luxe animal spot slingbacks. Wear them with everything from off-duty denim to after-hours dresses.
Arguably as classic as its leopard print counterpart, stick to neutral, muted hues and snake prints will slot seamlessly into your existing wardrobe. Tuck our new snakeskin power blouse into a sexy pencil skirt or style with leather leggings and ankle boots for a cool spin. Feeling bold? Then do double snake with a dress or skirt and matching shoes.
It’s no surprise that the boldest animal print on the block is the one loved by the street style set. Don’t be daunted – a monochrome palette makes zebra super-wearable. Add an unexpected pop of colour with bright accessories – our emerald green sling backs or red ankle boots are perfect.
