TAKE ON THE ANIMAL PRINT TREND WITH THESE 3 OUTFITS

Indulge your wild side in this season’s must-have motif with our expert guide on how to wear animal print.

For some, animal print is a wardrobe basic; on a par with stripes and polka-dots. For others, stepping into a leopard dress or zebra-look skirt is an intimidating thought. Over fashion's lifespan, the jungle-inspired pattern has gone from tacky to classy, remerging again and again with more credibility each time. But if the struggle over how to wear animal print is something you can relate to, keep reading. Before you know it, the versatile style will be your new closet essential.

The easiest way to make animal print everyday-wearable is to juxtapose it with neutral basics. Dress down a statement cheetah midi skirt from Ganni or By Malene Birger by tucking in a boxy T-shirt and slipping into your go-to sandals. Alternatively, find a flowy button-down and pair it with your favourite blue jeans. Grab a black bucket bag et voilà: You’ve got yourself a comfortable, on-trend outfit.

On a good day, you may be struck with the urge to 'go big'. Embrace this rare temptation: If you’re already an animal print whiz and are ready to turn it up a notch, maximise the impact by tastefully clashing patterns. Accessories can be kept simple to ensure sophistication is upheld. Alternatively, patterns in a bold colourway will have a similar effect. Consider green leopard spots or a blue zebra-striped dress like style crush Megan Ellaby.

Animal print is the key to an easy, sultry, night-out-appropriate look. The leopard dress is the new LBD; opt for a mini-length cut, team it with a simple pair of heels and you’re ready to take on the town. If short dresses aren’t your thing, take note from influencer Emma Hill and bring the ‘jeans and a nice top’ look to the next level: Tuck a silky printed shirt into high-waisted black skinnies, and dab on your fail-safe red lipstick.
