Among all crazy and chic trends, patterns and designs we get to see and wear each year, it seems that animal print always finds its way back to the world of fashion, and we love it. It definitely became a classic staple and its growing popularity never ceases to amaze, regardless of whether you’re a fan of the wilderness trend or not. Huge fashion houses and brands have launched their own collections of accessories and clothing items with the main emphasis on animal prints. From the iconic leopard to zebra and snake, to some unusual prints like turtle skin and Dalmatian spots, the list never ends. It’s more than clear that we have a big challenge in front of us because any animal print piece requires a little more boldness and matching skills. In order to master the styling technique, it’s essential that you choose a statement detail that will totally complement your whole look. However, if you don’t pay attention to the deets and which two or three items you combine, there’s a great chance you’ll end up looking tacky and unfashionable. Also, we must not fail to mention the floral print trend and how these two prints can be pulled together. Here are some tips on how you can wear animal and floral prints depending on the occasion and mood.
Roaring in style
When you think a little, you’ll realize how animal prints don’t leave anyone indifferent. Back in the ‘90s, animal print ruled the catwalks and Naomi Campbell was there to prove it. Women like her definitely knew how to pull off the wild prints by Azzedine Alaia at that time, and own it like it’s nobody’s business. It’s like you have to keep an animal inside you to actually channel this look, and there’s no better example of boldness and sass than Naomi. In recent years, the leopard print became available among accessories such as sunglasses, purses, briefcases, shoes and undergarments. Many fear wearing these brave prints because they are not sure how to combine leopard or snake prints with other garments. But, thanks to social media and fashion influencers, it’s possible to easily follow and copy their style, by including animal print even in daily combinations. If you thought it’s impossible to wear a leopard print to work, think twice because you can look chic and irresistible in only two steps. The safest way of not making a mistake with animal prints is to select one piece of your outfit that will be in that pattern and then the rest should stay simple. You can go for a leopard skirt, coat, jacket, shoes, pants or a purse. Buy some gorgeous animal print skirts from Réalisation clothing and plan your outfits in advance. A model and a mom of two, Chrissy Teigen, served us some major looks when she wore her tiger-striped skirt with a simple black turtleneck and hoop earrings. What a deadly combo! To look as classy as her, it’s important to note that leopard print goes well with other garments in black, beige, red or perhaps violet.
Florals, florals and more florals
Another year around the sun, and yet florals are still in. But why would we change something that’s good and puts you in a great summer mood? Flowery prints emphasize our ladylike side, so if you’re feminine and romantic, this style is perfect for you. Depending on the color of the print, it can be combined with pastels or white. The floral print goes best with skirts, dresses or crop tops, but make sure you wear only one piece in that design, to avoid being ‘’too much’’. You can choose between large and small prints, it’s up to your personal preference. Flowery sundresses are the best choice for long summer walks by the beach or while running errands, especially if they come in blue, yellow or red colors. Explore your feminine side and opt for one of these must-haves, and you’ll be dressed cute from head to toe.
If you are one of those fashionistas that aren’t afraid to play with fashion, only the sky is the limit. You can wear these prints alone or in a combination, and turn heads wherever you go. We have no second thoughts you would make it.
