Take a Walk on the Wild Side.
As the summer winds down and we transition into Fall what better time to get out your animal print or invest in some! Animal print is THE most fun neutral to wear and I will show you different ways to bring out your wild side in THE best way!
As you SHOP...here's a few tips + tricks to guide you!
1. LET THE PRINT SHINE.
When wearing animal print, you don’t want to fight it…you want to feature it! So, the best compliment to keep your look elevated is with Fall’s hottest trends of luxe fabrics like velvet + corduroy and luxe jewel tones like mustard, bordeaux, hunter green and midnight!
TIP: Pick one item to represent your print and then color block everything else with solid or a textured solid. For example, animal print open front sweater, white tee, dark green velvet pants, textured grey bootie boots, tan bag!
2. CHEAP TO CHIC.
First, make sure you are buying your print in flattering + age appropriate silhouettes in quality fabrics. Second, choose ONE type of print instead of wearing a bunch of different animal prints together and third, OWN IT!! Animal print will no doubt give you a little swagger and make you feel fierce so if there is ever a day you’re not feeling it…snap yourself out of it by puttin’ on yo’ animal print and ROCK IT!
3. GOT TO REPRE-PRINT.
When you embrace animal print you need to embrace it in a way that will keep it fresh and current for the season. So, the best way to buy animal print this season besides in a wicked bootie boot is in oversized pieces! My favs are sweater knits, bomber style jackets, structured bags and loose, flowy blouses!
TRICK: When styling oversized pieces make sure the rest of your outfit fits you well…now, I don’t mean tight, just well fitted! ;)
