WORDS BY ALESSIA SCRIVA
Winter is here, and we are ready for it. Colder days means layers upon layers, and this season is the perfect time to dust off your classic winter staples. But a change has set in, so be ready to take your winter style to the next level. Two words people, animal print.
Animal print has come back wilder than ever this winter season in the form of well, everything. Leopard, snakeskin, tiger and zebra, you name it and they’ve printed it. It’s a must have this winter season and can be worn as a pop of colour in your accessories or a bold statement piece.
With something for everyone, even those who like to keep it simple – don’t be afraid to start off small. There are three full proof ways to join in the fun without jumping too far out of your comfort zone, boots, bags and belts. Accessorise block colours with a pop of your favourite print for a subtle, but super fun effect.
If you’re ready to dive headfirst into the trend, use your animal instincts to be bold and substitute your classic staples for some daring prints. Leopard print is at the forefront of the animal print trend; the fan favourite staple piece this season is the leopard print oversized coat.
For those of you who’ve mastered wearing animal print and are ready to take it one step further, its time to get creative with mixing and layering prints. Embracing this bold trend only requires one skill, confidence. If the runway has taught us one thing animal print it’s to be bold, daring and wear it with attitude.
