Ask Alex: Call of the Wild
Q: Alex, I’ve been seeing animal prints everywhere lately. Is it too late buy into this look?
A: Animal print is not going anywhere any time soon. It’s just one of those trends that won’t go out of style. So what are you waiting for? If you haven’t already been spotted wearing this trend you’re definitely missing out.
Leopard, tiger, and zebra prints are like neutrals since they’re made up from beige, brown and black which makes these prints seasonless. That’s why you’ll be seeing these bold prints making a statement year round and why there are an abundant collection of options to choose from.
It’s easy to harness the come-hither magnetism in large or small amounts. If you’re as bold as Diane von Furstenburg, try the print from top-to-toe or you can start slow with a printed blazer or shirt as seen on the Tracey Reese runway. Designers have been running wild with animal inspirations and will continue to update classic styles and silhouettes for years to come. That makes this trend more of a classic especially if you’re mindful of choosing a classic style print in small doses. You can’t go wrong with accessories, like these shown here, and they can be just as eye-catching as an all-over look.
