How To Wear Animal Print



"In fashion - one day you're 'in' and the next you're 'out'" (Heidi Klum). Fashion is unforgiving. Silhouettes, colors, patterns...what's on-trend one season may go style-extinct the next. Do large puffed shoulders or velour tracksuits bring back any memories? If not - you may have blinked and missed them. However, like the Little Black Dress, every now and then fashion introduces us to something we can no longer live without: The icon. 

From its universal recognizability to the luxury and - dare we say - ferociousness it symbolizes, everything about thee trend for fall, is iconic. We're talking about the return of animal prints. Leopard, jaguar, tiger, snake - and even bovine - filled the pre-season runways of every designer and fashion house. From Tom Ford's electric green  cheetah print  suits   to  Roberto  Cavalli's metallic blue snake print separates - this iconic print is at the forefront of fall fashion.

With this past evolution, animal prints have grown into vast and accessible areas. This may be the first time in fashion where animal print is truly for everyone. Fashion now considers animal prints to be new neutrals. The repetitive shapes and soft earth tones of animal prints give both wearers and designers a canvas to paint upon. From subtly-saturated cheetah print casual dresses to curve-hugging cocktail dresses, it's easy to incorporate animal print into your own style.
