Trend Alert- Animal Prints - Femme Connection

Animal prints are a huge trend for the upcoming season. They can be bold and strong but can also be toned down for a more conservative dresser. They can be scary to style, so we pulled our favourite animal print pieces and have provided some styling tips so you can wear this trend confidently!

General Tips

The main secret to rocking animal print is keeping every other element of your outfit simple. For example, if you want to wear a leopard print skirt, keep your shirt, jacket and shoes all the same neutral colour. If in doubt, you can never go wrong sticking to black for everything except the statement animal print piece! This ensures your piece doesn’t clash with other colours or patterns.

Leopard Top

The ¾ Sleeve Flute top is an eye-catcher, with its flowing fit and super fun leopard print.

While it makes a statement on its own, we think you can style this to perfection with some slim fitting black pants, and maybe a red or nude pump, depending how bold you’d like to go. Tie the look together with a gold cuff bracelet to draw eyes to the sleeves.

The Animal Pant

These animal pants are great fun! The tie belt accentuates the waist and provides a flattering focal point.

You can dress these up or down - For a night out, pair the pants with a silky black blouse and a statement pair of earrings (add a jacket if it's chilly). More casually, these pants look great with a flowing cardigan and tee, paired with white sneakers.
