ZEBRA, LEOPARD, TIGER, SNAKE – THIS SUMMER IS GOING TO BE A JUNGLE OUT THERE
Animal prints are timeless. And the good news is that even though they’re on-trend this season, there’s no need to worry that a leopard-print trench or zebra-print sandal you buy now will be out of fashion come next season. Besides, one can never have too many animal-print accessories, because they work so well with black and neutrals.
From boots and bags to statement outerwear and printed denim, it seems like exotic animal patterns and prints are everywhere.
Historically, cheetah and leopard prints have reigned supreme in fashion’s animal kingdom, while zebra and tiger stripes have long served as regal runners-up.
But snakeskin has officially slithered its way on to the scene and I think it’s safe to say it’s well nested and not going anywhere anytime soon. Don’t get me wrong, we’re not trying to dismiss the feline fashion trend, but if you’re bored with the regular prints on offer, it might be time to shake things up! And reptile prints are the way to go. They’re edgy, sleek and exciting, and you can even find this print in the on-trend lumo colourway.
Python prints offer the best of both worlds. They typically come in a mix of grey and brown palettes, making them a near-neutral. But their dynamic textures and bold prints make them as eye-catching as any other animal print; plus, they’re a stylish yet efficient way to instantly glam up an all-black outfit.
In addition to the reptile prints, look out for snakes, crocs and bugs as the trend explodes into jewellery. Get ready for a wild summer.
