Call of the Wild: Animal Prints for Summer
From leopard spots to zebra stripes, the hottest summer looks are animal inspired. Go head to toe with your spots and stripes a la Dolce & Gabanna or add an animal print accent to your look if you are not yet ready to roar.
Try on the animal-print trend by tying on a scarf—be it in your hair, around your neck or on your bag. This silk, snake-print scarf from Gucci is a safe pick for adding a little bit of wild to your wardrobe for those wanting to dip their toes into the trend.
If the leopard is your spirit animal, these calf-hair mules from Prada are the perfect fit. Consider leopard print a neutral and wear it with everything.
If you aren’t afraid of snakes—or a statement shoe, go for these snakeskin print platform sandals from Miu Miu.
And these patchwork logo mules from Givenchy, are a classic and comfy way to get in on the animal print trend. Wear them as you travel from here to there and everywhere during your summer getaways.
No wardrobe is complete without a flowy summer skirt. This black and white plisse skirt from Burberry can look as classic or bold as you want it to be. Pair it with tanks, tees, blazers or a blouse—the leopard print works both at work and at play.
Some prefer their animal prints in small doses. Others like to bring the entire jungle book to their look. These Dolce & Gabbana leopard print cady leggings fit into that category. Be bold, stand out and prove you’re the cat’s meow in these. Pair them with the matching top (as pictured) if you prefer to roar.
You simply can’t go wrong with a leopard-print dress. This retro-inspired Saint Laurent with its ruffle neck, shoulder pads and short hemline is a must this summer. Pair it with boots for an edgy rocker look or rock it with lace up sandals to soften the vibe.
