Fashion is one of the oldest forms of expressing oneself. From different styles to prints and slogans, you can pretty much wear your heart on your sleeve for the whole world to see. Maybe you are in a bright yellow to celebrate the sun being out after a rainy day or stepping out in killer heels because your confidence level is at its peak.
One genre of clothing that has long been used specifically for expressing one's wild side is the animal prints. No woman will put on a leopard print skirt but to stand out in a sea of comparatively tame prints that are in trend. A fashion classic in the truest sense, the animal print has been around since the ages of kings and queens, who used the actual animal skin to fashion rugs and shawls out of.
Even though that practice is not prevalent anymore (*phew*), the style has still remained popular with many different versions out. Check out the ever-stylish Malaika Arora Khan in a snakeskin pantsuit, two words we never thought will be said together...
Even though Malaika looks like a total killer in these, there are quite a few different fashion items that come in animal prints that leave their mark without looking OTT. We rounded up a few to get you started with the trend -
Your Rain Buddy
Stock on fashionable rainy day essentials, make this spotted sheer PU coat one of the group (don’t forget to secure the wrist cuffs).
A Nice Maxi Dress
All over Zebra prints can be toned down a bit by changing the direction of the prints to sit well together.
Tie Up Sandals
Snakeskin tie-up sandals look sleek and stylish with your basic solids, adding a much-needed dash of details to the plain colours.
A Summer Tee
Replace your plain white summer tee with an animal printed one and start with this animal printed tiny top!
An Unlikely Accessory
Unlikely fashion accessories like sipper bottles and umbrellas are getting a lot of traction as legit add-ons to your wardrobe.
A Sheer Blouse
This crocodile skin printed sheer top can be paired with your everyday blue jeans and black solid trousers, alike.
An Intimate Detail
One of my favourite cheeky fashion tricks is to pair translucent and sheer tops with a quirkily printed bra. It’s super fun and we found the perfect print for that!
A Tiny Bag
The trick with animal print handbags is to keep them small so in order to avoid looking gaudy carrying a print-heavy accessory.
A Pretty Jumpsuit
You can never have too many jumpsuits and this cut-out detailed piece is totally chic and comfy for a whole day of chores or relaxation.
An Everyday Sneaker
Animal printed sneakers are a step up from your usual casual slip-ons and sports shoes. Pair with your casuals pants and dresses for a laidback look.
A Wee Skirt
Mini skirts speak for themselves as a fashion necessity in every millennial woman’s wardrobe. This one is in purple!
