How to wear the animal print trend

Animal print of all varieties seems to have settled down as a classic in our wardrobes. Both summer and winter animal prints are now available in the shops and online.

Personally I like a touch of animal print, except for snake which is very popular this season. The reason for this is that I have a phobia of snakes so will be giving this trend a miss.

In my opinion a little animal print in an outfit goes a long way. I prefer to add a touch rather than feeling overwhelmed by the look. Last year I did however buy a red animal print tunic which you can see me wearing here. Very adventurous for me but I did get a lot of wear out of it. It looked especially good worn under a black or navy coat.

If you are a fan of this trend these animal prints could be a fun addition to your wardrobe.

    Absolutely love the red and grey combination, just my style and I really liked your red leopard last year. Warm leopard isn’t in my palette and I’m really a snake lady. Might be something to do with my maiden name…..Boa.

    I have loved a touch of leopard for years. This year boarded leopard booties and snake ballerina flats. Absolutely love them!
