Style Tips to Wear Animal Prints & Look Fashionable
Animal prints are busy! They attract attention no matter your body shape. This poses a challenge because you might not end up looking elegant. But let’s help you!
1. Pick Neutral Colors
Animal prints are considered neutral because they feature the timeless black, white, and other earthy tones. However, designs nowadays are coming up with so many color varieties like orange, green and other bold colors.
Unless you’re a styling queen who is not afraid of attention, please go for the more laid-back options so you can easily wear them without much effort.

Animal prints are wild already! And if you want to look elegant in them, stick to clothes with clean and classic lines and shapes like blazers, coats, cardigans, structured dresses, shirtdresses, pencil skirts, a bag, or shoes.
You might want to go Bohemian in animal prints–I mean, free and all casual. That’s fine, but make sure you’re not wearing baggy outfits which only make you look like you never put any thought into your dressing.
3. Pair With Solid Colors
The key to looking great in animal print is to match colors that actually work. We recommend matching animal prints with solid colors to tone down the quizzical effect and create a tasteful balance.
The best place to start is to consider one color in your prints and pick a matching pair for this color.
It’s not mandatory to have exactly the same shade because a color close enough is good. For instance, if black is the dominant color of your animal print bottom, you can pair it with a solid black top.
You can also match with other neutrals. Black or white are classic pairs and you can never go wrong in them.
Most animal prints come in earthy tones like browns, no matter the shade. If black and white seems to common for you, pair your animal print outfit with camel which is a timeless color combinations for most outfits.
A camel coat will perfectly finish a snakeskin print dress, like this one here. A rich leather bag is also the perfect accessory for your animal print outfit.

Animal prints naturally make a statement. They also tend to overpower other outfits and can come off as extra trendy. To tone down the look, don’t wear too much of it.

Also, do not combine different kinds of animal prints. It hardly works! If you’ve choosen to wear leopard prints, for instance, do so with balance, and minimalism in mind and you are guaranteed to turn heads!

But if you’re the queen of BOLD and having all eyes on you is no problem, go ahead and wear a full animal print look.
Just keep the accessories very slim, chic, and minimal so your look is not so busy.
