None of us can fail to see that animal and reptile prints are having a MOMENT!! All the shops and websites are awash with the stuff. But the new slant seems to be mixing it up. Here are some tips for pattern making with confidence.
In the first two shots I’m wearing a pair of ancient cheetah print pants which I drag out of the back of my closet every summer as the light weight silk is cool and comfortable to wear. With the pants I’ve paired a snake print blazer which I had forgotten about…I was just about to hit the buy button when a little voice prompted me to instigate a search. RESULT this blazer is a gem from my fav Zadig brand that hasn’t had an airing for a year or several. With a simple plain blouse to break up the pattern the result is pretty eye-catching I think. Here are a few suggestions of tops and bottoms with which you could create this look. Top here with skirt here top here and pants here
For a less in your face combination you could try the look below:
The easy way to integrate a little wild into your look is to just select one showstopper item and keep the rest plain, these are a few of the items that I liked when I browsed the internet for this post: Blazers here and here and here and here or you could go for a blouse like this one here
Above is a look I put together a few weeks ago using a shirt and bag from the_bias_cutcom and I have to admit I have my eye on these sneaks here My justification being that I haven’t got a zebra in my zoo, er I mean closet ;D
Above I’m wearing top to toe leopard, its a cami and pants not a jumpsuit, the addition of the white blazer serves to tame the look a little! here and here A few more pieces that you might like are this amazingly gorgeous sweater from Zadig here and I also like this way cheaper version here Adding a touch of print in the form of a scarf, bag or shoes is another easy way of getting the look.
