When I was a teenager, my mom loved leopard print. Of course, at that point, I hated it because it was a mom thing. Then, one day in my early 20s, I woke up and started hunting for all the animal print outfits I could find. Once animal print was in style again, my mom never let me forget how much I loathed it when she was wearing it in the 80s (maybe the 90s too – I am bad with dates). I vowed from then forward not to fall for trends too hard and own what I liked no matter what. It was a good life and fashion lesson tied up in a leopard bow.
Animals prints are definitely trending right now, but my love for leopard, cheetah, snake print, and zebra has never wavered. I get really excited when my favorite pieces are back “in style” again because that gives me a wider selection to choose from. YAY!!! Today, we are going to discuss how to look stylish in animal prints without overdoing it. (P.S. this is about the prints not about fur or anything like that.)
How to Wear Animal Print
To me animal prints like leopard print, cheetah, and snake prints are very neutral and if you think of them in that way, you can successfully pull together a very unique look without going over the top. Think of leopard as a neutral color like black, white, camel or grey. Animal prints can be used to spice up any outfit whether it’s spring, summer, fall, and winter! Any season – you can rock your animal prints all year long.
Summer Animal Print Outfits
During the summer, I like to use my leopard print sarong scarf as a cover up over bathing suits. I have been using my scarf sarong for years and it still looks great! This is a fun way to add some prints to your summer style. Here is a really cute leopard scarf or the one in the photo below. They are both similar to what I have.
You can also find a really cute top for a summer outfit. This scarf leopard print top is perfect for a summer look with a white jean skirt. I found both of these pieces at Macy’s from INC. (I.N.C. Leopard Hardware Halter Top & White Jean Skirt). You can save 40-60% on INC women’s clothing at Macy’s. See the full selection here.
Fall & Winter Animal Print Outfit Ideas
You can wear animal print tops with cute black pants during the fall and winter seasons. I also love wearing animal prints like leopard with linen shorts in the summer. And white jeans
You can also wear animal prints as accessories like belts or shoes or even hair accessory‘s. I found a very cute leopard print headband that’s very in this year. It reminds me of gossip girl and Blair Waldorf.I love using animal prints as an accent print with a basic dress or to mix prints.My leopard you always have been my most worn shoes ever. This year I added a pair of snake skin wedge sandals for summer. They have been a great neutral all summer long.
Animal Print Dresses
I also love wearing animal print scarves to spice up a little black dress or a little white dress and summer. You can also go really bold with animal print dress. INC has this amazing dress with a scarf striped accent that I am in love with. You can dress this maxi dress up with a nice pair of heels or wedges and dress it down with a pair of flat sandals and a basket bag. Check out the Leopard Maxi Dress!
