Despite what you might think, animal prints are actually quite versatile. A pair of leopard print shoes can add some edge to a girly floral dress and a snakeskin bag will bring your LBD stampeding into this season. But if you’re going to make this trend work for you, then you’ll need to consider your own style. If you’re a classically chic dresser, then a simple belt will be the perfect way to introduce the print to your outfits. If you prefer a quirkier style, then mix things up a little, why not clash animal with stripes?
I want to show you two very different ways of wearing animal print while at the same time push myself out of the orange-brown-leopard-print-rut that I’ve got myself into (I’m always pushing clients outside their comfort zone, so I guess it’s only fair that I do the same to myself). This dress by Biba does just that. While it’s very much covered in animal print, the colour and style is a little less obvious and dare I say it, sophisticated.
