You must know by now, that animal print is making a huge comeback this fall. I’m sure if you follow fashion accounts on Instagram your feed must be overflowing with snakeskin pants, leopard print skirts and much much more.
If you have been reading my blog, or following my Instagram account or even my Youtube channel, for a while, then you know for sure that any prints other than stripes and occasional florals aren’t really my cup of tea. But, I must say this season I’m feeling quite “adventurous” and embracing the whole animal print craze… 13-year-old me would be equally shocked and mortified at the thought of it.
No matter what my younger self thinks, I’m all for the animal print trend. But of course, I’m going to wear it my way… That means dressing it down to a more casual, edgy vibe. I loved pairing this rather girly frilly skirt with a simple T-shirt. That way I’m staying true to my style while still experimenting with it.
Somehow in my head, animal print is an EXTREMELY “feminine” print. More ladylike actually then feminine. We all had an aunt in her late 40’s, who always wore leopard print and zebra clothes, red nails and red lips, and who usually smokes. Yes, that’s what I used to associate animal print with. But nowadays it’s not the case anymore. Animal print is for the cool young fashionistas, not just a middle age cougar.
If you’re afraid of this trend and don’t believe you can pull it off, don’t. I’m telling you, you can! I made a whole video talking about how to style this rather tricky trend, but in a nutshell, style it to your own fashion sense.
So if you haven’t jumped on this Fall’s hottest trend then, what are you waiting for?
