I’m not talking about your typical beige or brown. I’m talking about animal prints. Do not be fooled into thinking you can only wear animal prints with colors that are within those prints. Animal prints are the new neutral! Embrace your zebra, cheetah, snake, and giraffe prints. The best thing about this is it’s in all season trend. You can pull this off all year round.
New to animal prints? No problem. As with any introduction to something new to you in fashion, I suggest starting small. It will make the transition easier. It also makes it easier to warm up to. You know how it is when you get a new hair style and you hate it on the first day…you typically end up loving it by day three. (This generally happens to those that fear change but that’s another blog post.)
Start with accessories. You know your favorite blue dress? Instead of wearing it with your black peep toes, try a leopard pump or a zebra pump. Both will work. Start out wearing your favorite solids with one animal print accessory; a shoe, a handbag, a scarf, or jewelry. As you see how well these pieces go together, you will get comfortable with bolder looks.
