Whether you’re a fan or not, it’s hard to forget an outfit which has subtle hints or a whole lot of animal print. This symbol-of-status print has been worn by the who’s who throughout history given its price and because animal skin is considered exotic. Gladly, we’re in the twenty-first century and real animal skin is a huge no-no. But does that mean that the 1960s popular Bohemian print has left the trend-charts? I can guarantee you it hasn’t. From A-lister celebrities around the world to even influencers ‘round the globe, an animal printed item sits in everyone’s wardrobes.
Whether to go all out and wear the print from head-to-toe or include understated hints—sporting animal prints can definitely get tricky. If you’re ever stuck in that dilemma, here are some sartorial tips and tricks, courtesy of the bloggers. Wear it for a night out or a casual day out, scroll ahead for all the ways you can make a statement with animal prints.
5 bloggers that will show you how to incorporate the trend in your outfit:
1. Pooja Mundhra
The exotic vibe of animal prints is the perfect statement-making addition to a casual-chic outfit. Check out Pooja’s basic oversized shirt + denim skirt combo. Love that she upped the ante of her outfit by carrying a leopard printed sling bag.
2. Olivia Frost
Can’t say that Olivia’s look is not one of my personal favourites given that I am a lover of zebra print. For a vacation in a cold country, this would definitely be a great outfit for a day out in the city. Love how she balanced the OTT factor of the pants with a white hoodie and a textured, black trench coat.
3. Komal Pandey
Komal’s sartorial quirks are unmissable and the influencer’s Instagram feed has vivid style inspirations fit for everyone’s tastes. Won’t say she isn’t a fan of loud animal prints, but this look, in particular, is a standout. Her snakeskin belt + snakeskin bag combo certainly proved to be the head-turning elements of her otherwise basic, black and white ensemble. Subtle incorporations, remember?
4. Caitlin Heath
Dalmatian prints? Yes, please! If you’re bored of sporting polka dots, here’s an iteration you could try. Imagine wearing this skirt with an oversized, black shirt or a white t-shirt. Can’t say I’m not loving it! What about you?
5. Aashna Shroff
Head-to-toe in animal print is not easy to ace and can turn out to be a disaster. However, Aashna effortlessly slayed her turquoise-hued, snakeskin co-ord set—bralette teamed with shorts and worn with an oversized shirt. Pro tip: while opting for a full animal printed outfit, go for toned down and subtle prints to make just the right amount of impact.
