DO think of Animal Prints as a neutral, something to dress up and pair with bright colors and subtle patterns.
DON’T mix animal patterns. Pick your animal and wear it. Too many animals can look like overkill at a safari.
DO incorporate animal accessories as part of your wardrobe, especially if you are just beginning to explore this trend.
DON’T be afraid to match animal prints with themselves. Meaning if you are wearing a pair of leopard print shoes, you can wear a leopard print bangles, belt, scarf or even carry a small clutch.
DO attempt to balance the boldness of animal print with a bright solid color. It really is as simple as choosing your favorite color! In addition, if your animal print is TOO bold, definitely tone it down with other pieces in shades pulled from the print.
DO choose classic pieces when wearing this trend. This print is an extremely daring one, so incorporating it into a simple dress or skirt that complements your figure could be very flattering.
DON’T be afraid to wear animal print in a different shade other than the way it looks in nature. These days, animal print comes in different colors that make it easy to find your favorite!
DO remember to stay age appropriate. A bright colored leopard print top may be appropriate in your twenties, but not so much when you are forty. Aging well does not just include taking care of your body, but dressing your body in ways that complement where you are in your life’s journey.
