Animal Prints: Women Fashion Trend Alert

Article by Daktari









Looks like animal prints are making a comeback and you must have at least one clothing piece with a wild animal print, inspired from the wool of an exotic animal: leopard, zebra or tiger! Roberto Cavalli is the designer who keeps animal prints modern, for when a woman needs to defend her territory like a tigress. Inspire from his clothing and accessories line collections and choose the print depending on height, figure, and personal features.

The easiest to wear is the tiger print in slightly dusty colors of summer and black or dark grey. Choose for articles in neutral colors: black, khaki, cream, white – to compensate the electric colors of animal prints: pink leopard or zebra in shades of lemon yellow. Zebra print is not necessarily one of the standard prints: white and black can be adopted with totally different colors: dark blue and brown, yellow and purple etc.

Because this season animal prints are a trend, a must have are the animal printed shoes. These shoes can be an imitation of leopard, crocodile, or zebra, in matte or a shimmer version. Animal print shoes go well with a colorful dress or with the beige and grey colors. You can accessorize them with a belt or a clutch with the same print.

The hardest to wear are the large zebra prints. These are recommended to be accessorized with: the handbag, the shoes, and the belt. Regarding accessories, it is suggested to only wear one piece with animal print: the scarf or the shoes, the handbag or the belt, never more together because you want to keep a chic look.

The shoes respect the platform style, with high soles and at least 10 cm heels. Sandals also fall in this category, flat soles of the disco years, from varnish or textile material. The preferred colors of the season are: chocolaty, sandy, khaki, beige, and orange, with metallic details here and there. These metallic colors of copper and bronze are perfect on accessories (handbags, shoes) and in trend with the season.

Belts made from leather and with animal prints, best represent a sensual season. Other interesting models proposed by designers are the wide belts, shaped like pleats, those with safari-like prints: zebra, leopard or the elastic ones with a mosaic buckle.

The jewelry you wear should have the same colors and details: wood, metallic accents such as copper and bronze, sometimes gold. Ultimately, you should not lose sight of the importance of sunglasses. Trends point, similarly to last summer, to the retro model. The sunglasses should be big, but playful, feminine, sexy, and refined.
