Everyone is getting in on the animal print act this season, and I mean everyone - did you see The Duchess of York in her zebra print top last month? Or Robbie Williams in his snakeskin shoes? Yes, really!
Animal prints are such big news, they’re not only making it into the wardrobes of the A-list fashion icons (Sienna Miller, Paris Hilton, Fearne Cotton and Rhianna to name just a few), it’s getting a stronger and stronger trend that shows no signs of abating any time soon.
So the question is, what animal print do you own? If the answer is none or not many, take note on the best way to add some snakeskin or tiger into your life…
For the brave, the only way to make your mark in this top trend is with a one-piece animal print dress. Go wild for a busy print that will actually slim the appearance of your figure, as the pattern gets all the attention.
This Wallis dress is a great example of how to be bold and look super-chic at once. Keep accessories simple – black high courts, a black croc effect clutch and a shaped black bangle. This is a gorgeous outfit for both evening or work.
Another way to work the look is by investing in an animal print tunic or top. This Wallis tunic is a perfect way to up the animal factor this autumn. Team tunics with black leggings or slim fit black jeans and strappy stud high heels for an attention-grabbing outfit.
A TOUCH OF ANIMAL MAGIC
If you’d rather ease into things, then add a subtle snakeskin touch, in the form of shoes or jewellery. It’ll revamp your look for the season and get you in the animal spirit. To follow in the footsteps of super-stylish Gwen Stefani, try these Wallis snake pointed court shoes on for size. Or go for these wear-with-anything bangles.
