Animal Print Seems To Be A Trend Every Season
Animal prints seem to have been a basic constant over the last few seasons in womens fashion. They keep showing up on runway shows and eventually in the stores every season. Jenna Lyons of J Crew once said: “As far as I’m concerned, leopard is a neutral”.
Fall 2014 is not any different and everywhere you turn you see some kind of animal print item, from jackets to bags and shoes, they are everywhere with a designers new twist. I wanted to share with you some of my favorite animal print pieces for fall 2014 and also give you a couple of tips in how to buy and wear animal print jackets and coats for your wardrobe.
Here are my tips in how to wear them:
- Stick to one animal print piece in your outfit. If you are wearing a jacket or coat in an animal print, do not add an animal print bag or shoes to the same outfit.
- Stick to wearing animal prints with neutral colors like black, brown, camel or grey and let the print be the focus of your outfit.
- You can also mix animal prints with other prints like floral or checks or stripes, but make sure the sizes for each pattern is different in scale. For example a big leopard print coat will work well with a small floral print top and a solid bottom.
- You can try colorful combos, but I would wear those with neutrals in the bottom and not a bright color bottom.
I hope these are helpful hints and please let me know your thoughts on animal prints.
