Animal Prints

Animal prints add a dash of boldness, fun, elegance and glamour to any outfit and these prints have grown in popularity over time. Animal print designs can be found on just about anything, including clothing such as skirts, pants, shirts, shoes, purses, scarves and come in a variety of colours, sizes, and styles. They are ideal for styling, layering, combining, and matching with other patterns or worn on their own. Animal prints fashion include animals such as zebras, giraffes, snakes, lizards, tiger, leopard, crocodiles, leopards, cheetahs, and others.

Reasons why you should wear animal prints

Eye-catching effects: At social gatherings like parties, wearing an item with an all-over animal print may make a statement or draw attention, but wearing more subdued, smaller versions may give off a more put-together vibe.

Mood enhancing: Depending on the type of animal or combination involved, animal prints convey different emotions. For instance, leopard prints denote self-assurance and playfulness, cheetah prints conjure a fiery demeanour, serval prints denote originality, and elephant prints denote strength and wisdom. Depending on personal taste and the intended result, mix and match appropriately.

Pair strategically: To achieve balance and proportion, combine animal designs with solid neutral tones, complementary colours, or tones that are comparable to them. When selecting multiple animal prints, take into account whether they have complementary traits (like vertical stripes) or contrast well with one another due to their individual characteristics. Also consider scale; when combined, small vs. large prints can have a different visual impact.

Coordinate with texture: Using fabrics with various textures and finishes, particularly within one outfit, is another excellent way to integrate animal patterns. This method draws attention away from cluttered pattern pairings while introducing intrigue through the use of sensory aspects, such as matte silk next to shiny tweed or soft velvet next to rough corduroy. Feel free to experiment and push boundaries

Go big (or go home): On rare circumstances, taking advantage of maximal exposure can be quite effective if done correctly. Try wearing all-animal print outfits, mixing and combining different designs in one outfit or space, or introducing bigger motifs as statement pieces (think animal-printed floor mats, chairs, or throw pillows). Just keep in mind to keep each setting visually harmonious.

Embrace timeless classics: Because of their inherent adaptability and eternal beauty, some animal patterns will never go out of style. Zebra print, Herringbone, argyle, tartan, and houndstooth are examples of black-and-white patterns that have strong geometric shapes that resemble those seen in nature (such as fish scales or reptile skin) and can be styled with ease.
