Trendspotting: Animal Print
Animal print in terms of trends is nothing new and often infiltrates our wardrobe without us being cognizant of it. However, this season has seen a departure from the subtler variations of the trend – it’s all about going bigger and bolder. Think 'come-hither' Giuseppe Zanotti Cordelia Heels, a trendy Stone Island White Tiger Coat, a fluorescent Off-White Python 80’s Dress and holiday-ready McQ Alexander McQueen Leopard Denim Shorts. It’s a trend to be excited about: now that summer finally feels like it’s arrived incorporating bright and eccentric Gucci Zebra Print Jeans into your look might just be the sartorial Xanax that your wardrobe needs after a long, long winter.
Don’t feel overwhelmed, neon animal print isn’t for everyone – Burberry’s offering, an Animal Print Top in soft brown, will fall into the ‘work appropriate’ section of your wardrobe. Pair with slim black jeans or cream tailored shorts and you’re a brogue away from brunch-ready. For the very bravest among us, why not clash prints? How about the MSGM Floral Zebra Print Dress with Off-White’s Python Mini Binder Clip Bag? Finally, for anyone who has (somehow) never dabbled in animal prints before, a Versace Animal Panel Achille Sneaker might be all you need to, quite literally, dip your toe into the trend.
