Maybe it’s the effect of seeing it every where, on the runway, in shops, online; or maybe it’s because I’m a bit more open these days but me, the self-confessed hater of all things animal print, seem to be falling for it.
Animal print is one of those trends that keep recurring every few years, reinvented but animal print quite alright. This season it’s made a pretty sleek chic come back and with designers like Louis Vuitton, Burberry Prorsum and Blumarine featuring it in Spring 2011, it just might be around for a while. Good thing too because it looks like we’ve finally figured out how to wear it and look chic.
The basic rule is to keep it simple, let the animal print do the talking and keep accessories and all other items as plain as possible, else you’ll risk looking like something out of national geographic.
For wary but attracted fans like me, the secret is to introduce a little piece of leopard print into your outfit, could be a bag, shoe, scarf or possibly part of a dress? Well, i found the perfect dress on asos.com
I like that it combines all the essential girly elements, sheer, frills and of course animal print. Paired with 6 inch high black or nude pumps, a tote in similar colour and we are on our way! It can also be dressed up or down with the right accessories. Stellar style piece.
