Question: What is a classy way to wear animal print?
Too much of anything is never a good thing, and animal print is no exception to this rule. If you are concerned about looking sleazy in animal print, you’ll want to remember the following rules:
CHOOSE A SUBTLE PRINT.
The goal when wearing animal print isn’t to look like you just skinned an animal and wrapped yourself in its hide. I love the Calvin Klein blouse above because it’s a subtle zebra print that’s not too overwhelming. The colors are neutral, and the top is professional enough to wear to work. I would pair this top with these funky Kendra Scott earrings.
CHOOSE CLASSIC PIECES.
Another trick to looking ladylike in leopard print is to choose classic pieces. You really can’t go wrong with a wrap dress, and this dress receives bonus points for a small print! Other classic pieces that I would recommend are cardigans that hit right at your hip, tops that are similar to the Lilly Pulitzer Elsa, and sweaters that are fitted and three-quarter length. While you don’t have to spend a small fortune to look like a million bucks in animal print, do choose quality pieces made of good fabric.
Spice up a basic outfit with a touch of animal print! Create a neutral base for your outfit, like a little black dress or a black tee with skinny jeans, and then throw on a fun animal print statement piece.
Now, get out there and rock some animal print!
