so today, we're taking on the always trendy animal prints in prints of prey.Animal prints are always wildly popular for fall, we saw it last year and we will probably see it again in 2012. This year, its leopard vs zebra, where some prints will be battling for reign of the runway!
before you go wild, make sure you learn the rules of the jungle with my tips and tricks for wearing animal prints and really any big or bold pattern.
one: prints like to be the star of an outfit, so pair them with complimentary neutral hues & basic pieces to let them shine // two: prints can go cheap in a hurry, be sure to invest in quality printed pieces that will last you a lifetime while looking lush // brighten up your animalistic look with fun pops of color try green or pink for leopard and yellow or red for zebra // pile on the prints! animal patterns can be the perfect pattern mixing piece // since animal prints can go trashy fast, above all, stay classy. use classic silhouettes and timeless shapes to keep from going too wild // here's how I do it...
and if you are torn between these perfect prints? pair predator with prey in a zebra meets leopard look!
Put your best print forward:
something to consider before picking your print: skin tone! Good news for you tan ladies (whether you got it from a salon, the sun or your momma) who can really get away with leopard or zebra (with my carmel complexion, the black and white contrast looks best on me)! But if you are on the fairer side, a darker leopard may suit you best but beware of those lighter leopards with a pale base that will wash you out!
while I love me some leopard (and I love being a leo), I am really into zebra right no, so that's the pattern I pick.. for the moment. nevertheless, my wardrobe may beg to differ since leopard is my current king of my closet.
so where does your allegiance lie? spots or stripes leopard or zebra? predator or prey?
