—— Animal Print Trend: Fall 2019 ——
Animal prints are the new neutrals and continue to be an on-trend investment this season. From catwalks to sidewalks, women are flaunting jackets, coats and accessories in dramatic leopard, snakeskin and even cow prints. But let’s be honest, while we love seeing the animal kingdom incorporated in fashion, not all of us have the courage to go bold with our everyday outfits. Don't worry; we're here to help! This edit is spot on to help you incorporate the jungle life without looking too wild.
1. Balance the Bold Patterns with Solid Colours
The easiest trick to pull off a bold animal print is to pair it down with solid bottoms. With holiday dinners and get-togethers coming up, we suggest pairing our Cheetah Print Tie Neck Shirt in tonal grey with our Pleather Trim Ponte Pant. We love the delicate neckline tie and blurred print that add an elegant femininity to this bold print. Complete this look with neutral heels and minimal accessories to create an effortlessly on-trend, ready for anything, outfit.
2. Keep It Timeless
In fashion, animal print never seems to go out of style so our suggestion is to invest in a classic silhouette with a wild print. Our favourite is the Leopard Print Jacquard Cardigan. Incredibly soft and comfy with an over-sized silhouette, this must-have long topper has what it takes to be your favourite, wear-with-everything, layering piece.
3. Wear It as an Accessory
Animal print doesn’t always have to be the star of your outfit; it looks just as striking in a supporting role. And since we're seeing this print as a neutral, accessories like shoes, bags, jewellery and scarves are the perfect way to add that little something extra easily. We think this cross body bag from Marshalls is a perfect addition to your look. Stay tuned for our Master of Rediscovery collection's signature print scarf that would also be a beautiful finishing touch!
4. Add a Splash of Red
Did you know... the newest trend when wearing animal print is to add a pop of red to the look?! We love this contrast so much that we designed the Snake Print Button Front Shirt to celebrate it! While the black, white and red print dares you to be bold, the classic shirt styling (with roll tab sleeves) means it will always be in style, even if fashion changes.
