I’m not one of those girls who can wear animal print from top to toe and make it work to perfection. I add a little touch here and there. At least that what I thought until a few days back when I wore my leopard print coat to a meeting and one of the girls pointed out that she would never be able to pull that off. We got to a conversation about how minimal one can go to stay on trend yet feel comfortable. Here are some ideas that I came up with.
Tip: first find your favorite animal pattern. Just because everyone is wearing leopard print does not mean it’s the only option.
This is the most obvious solution. Among all the animal print scarfs my favorite ones are the small ones. They are more flexible and you can play around with them.
You can tie one on your handbag when you are out and about. Then you can take it off, tie it around your neck when you are in the office or when you’re sitting in a classroom. You can have them around your wrist as an accessory and that alone will update your whole look.
This season belts are everywhere. You can wear them on blazers, coats, jumpers, midi skirts…… the list goes on and on. So there is an opportunity here to add a touch of animal print to your wardrobe without going crazy or spending lots of money. I would choose a wide belt to wear over outwears and a little thinner one if you want to wear it in a more conventional way, for example with your jeans or pants.
Hemline & Neckband & Cuffs
Look for pieces with a touch of animal print. Here are some of the examples that I love. My favorite one is the polka-dot blouse.
This is the easiest way to add a touch of trend to your existing wardrobe. Camisoles are affordable, easy to wear and they are everywhere. You can wear an animal print under a blazer or an open-neck jumper to instantly update your look.
I hope these tips give you some ideas on how to introduce animal-print to your wardrobe.
