It’s a jungle out there…. Animal prints such as leopard and snakeskin are everywhere! How do you tame this trend so you don’t look like you walked out of a zoo?
A little is animal print is sexy and chic at any age, but too much of it will make others roar..roar with laughter. Don’t be a fashion victim.
A touch of exotic skin shows that you have a creative side and that you are not afraid to express yourself. However, be stingy with animal prints. Live by the ONE ANIMAL RULE. What’s that?
If your sweater is leopard like in the photo above… Boom. That’s it! You really don’t need any more leopard print anywhere else, and you definitely shouldn’t mix your leopard print with tiger, zebra, giraffe, snake, lizard …you name it.
Instead pair that eye-catching leopard sweater with a classic pencil skirt in a neutral like black, camel, cream,brown, or gorgeous red, like Christine Kolenda did at NYC’s Beauty Bash event. Simple and chic, her sweater is her statement piece.
Now, this woman on the left has a touch of a repeating leopard print. She’s wearing a leopard print blouse with a cream jacket that is trimmed in leopard. She looks elegant, but if she wanted to kick it up a notch she could wear a balck or cream top under that jacket o make the trim stand out more.
Also, don’t be tempted to carry a matching animal print handbag. Don’t do it!!! It’s just overkill and you end up looking silly instead of sexy. Less is more when it comes to this queen of the jungle look.
Judith Ann Graham has it perfect. She’s teamed a snakeskin print blouse with leather pants. Any one else may have been tempted to add matching snakeskin heels but Judith chose gorgeous burgundy pumps and a matching burgundy handbag to really make her outfit pop.
