3 Beginner Tips To Style Animal Prints For Your Everyday Outfits

 Trends and fads come and go, but there are some styles that remain timeless, continuing to impress the fashion-savvy year after year. There may be seasons when they are more popular or seasons when they seemingly disappear, but they inevitably end up becoming a mainstay in our wardrobes. And animal prints are one of those evergreen styles. Once thought to be trend fit only for our parents and grandparents, animal prints have dutifully returned and how! 

From Balenciaga to Saint Laurent to Dolce & Gabbana, SS20 collections of some major fashion houses saw a myriad of takes on classic prints such as leopard, zebra, and cheetah. As stunning and eye-catching as animal prints are, they can also be outright scary for some and that is mostly because we may be slightly unschooled on the art of styling them right.

If you want to experiment with this bold style without looking like you have stepped out of the zoo, here are some tips to help you get started:

 

 

 

Be subtle

If you are only starting out with animal prints, you can choose to stay in the safe lane and wear them sparingly. A blouse here, or a scarf there – start with small pieces and work them into your everyday outfits. Runway Runaway Collection’s solid chocolate with leopard print dress trim is a great choice for you as it offers the perfect blend of solid colors and a subtle, yet stunning animal print.

Do not mix prints

If you flip through fashion magazines and scour street style websites, you will come across numerous images of people clad in clashing animal prints, head to toe. While that is certainly a daring choice, it may go horribly wrong if not executed in the right way. Since you are only starting out with these prints, you should avoid mixing them, lest you do it wrong. Stick with one animal print for every outfit. Once you get more confident with your choices, you can go about mixing things up.

Keep accessorizing to a minimal

When sporting animal prints, you must avoid putting on any jewelry or accessory that might take the focus away from the print. Make the print the star of your outfit and let it do the talking. Keep your accessories simple and minimal so that they do not overcomplicate your look or make it seem too busy. You can add a simple earring or necklace to complement your dress.
