If you’ve been anywhere near the High Street or have been shopping online lately, you can’t fail to have noticed that animal print is one of the biggest trends, if not THE biggest trend, this season.
It’s a bit of a ‘marmite’ trend though, you’ll either love it or hate it! Some people fear they might resemble Bet Lynch from Coronation Street and so like to give it a wide birth, others (including me) rather like it. If you’re in the latter camp then there’s plenty of choice out there. You can go all out with the trend and wear it top to toe in an animal print dress or coat, for example, or simply give a nod to the trend in a subtle animal print scarf or in shoes/boots or handbag.
This year, more than previous years, there are more creative and colourful animal prints, not just the traditional brown/cream leopard prints. As someone with Bright (Clear) colouring, I was really pleased to receive the multi-coloured blouse opposite from Mint Velvet as a birthday gift. I’ve added a bright coloured cut off jacket on top here to make the colours pop even more, but I also wear it on it’s own with my cobalt or green jeans.
I love the array of colours in the Kettlewell Colours animal print tops opposite too – there is literally a colour for everyone. (If they take your fancy just let me know as I’m a Kettlewell Colour Stylist).
Don’t forget to shop your own wardrobe too, as this is a trend that comes around at this time of year most years. I’ve been wearing loepard print shoe boots that I’ve had for the last 6 years, as well as some of the tops and the cardigan that we I share in the video below.
