How To Wear Animal Print
Depending on your love level/comfort level with animal print, we have come up with 4 different ways you can incorporate animal print into your fall wardrobe.
- Accessories Only
- Animal Print on Top
- Animal Print on Bottom
- All-in Animal Print.
These all provide a great way to stay current with the hottest trend, while giving you some flexibility with your clothing budget and animal print comfort level.
1. Animal Print – Accessories Only
If you aren’t sure about wearing animal print, this is an excellent way to test it out! It isn’t hard to find inexpensive earrings, belts, shoes, and bags that give you an animal print pop without breaking the bank!
Possibly the absolute easiest way to incorporate animal print is to find a leopard print or snakeskin earring you like. Keep an eye out for these Amazon finds in our social media posts, they are super lightweight and go with EVERYTHING! For under $10, these are a really affordable way to work in just a little animal print!
An Animal Print belt is a perfect way to hit two trends at the same time! With higher waisted jeans back in style, belts are making their way back into wardrobes. We both bought this snakeskin belt and highly recommend it! A skinny leopard print belt is a closet must, and this one caught our eye.
This basic black jumpsuit by Leota provided the perfect neutral foundation to dress up with a few animal print accessories. The jumpsuit is a thicker material and great for travel or a night on town. Check out our 24/7 Comfort Fashion for Work post for other ideas. Be sure to use code thebarelybs for 20% off. We recommend sizing down one, it’s pretty roomy in the hips.
Animal Print Bags
A cute little bag completes every outfit and we adore these! Since Animal print trends come and go, we don’t recommend breaking the bank on a designer animal print bag. Save the splurge for a neutral, timeless bag. Here are a few reasonable priced bag that can put a trendy spin on any outfit. #1 is a great snag from Target and both of us love the pop of print that it adds to any style. #2 & #3 create a very polished look that is great for dressy or casual. DO we really need to say anything about #4, I mean how fun is that furry beauty?! The back of it is a buttery faux brown leather and it comes with a gold chain too.
Animal Print Shoes
Shoes might just be our favorite way to incorporate animal print. When you want to mix black and brown, but aren’t sure how to tie it together, animal prints make it work! We wear these shoes all.the.time. because believe it or not, an animal print is a neutral. Love all of these! Side note, the snake print heels are on major sale right now and Jen swears that the snake print slide-ons are the most comfortable shoe she owns and they are only $20!
2. Animal Print – On Top Only
There are a ton of cute tops, vests, and jackets available in our two favorite animal prints – leopard and snakeskin. Animal Prints are very versatile and easy to dress up or down. We love it with jeans and Jen has found it works well for work wear, too. Just pair it with a black pair of pants or a pencil skirt and it’s an easy way to look cute, but professional, at work!
This Amazon top has been a top seller for a reason! Many people are surprised to find out it is actually a tee-shirt, but it is a thick material so looks dressier than most tees. Side note, not animal print, but the booties are really comfortable! Highly recommend!
We weren’t sure if a kimono counted as an accessory or a top, but here it is. :). An Amazon find so another very affordable way to jump on the animal print bandwagon.
Another stylish outfit with leopard print accents. Pair it with black pants for a more professional look.
The midi skirt is another big trend this season! Pair it with this casual sweatshirt and a pair of sneakers and you are ready for the day.
3. Animal Print – Bottom Only
This look might feel a bit more daring, but we have both found ways to make it work! Sticking with muted tones helps the look feel easy to wear. A really fun way to wear animal print on bottom is to wear an animal print skirt with a graphic tee and sneakers.
4. Animal Print – All in Animal Print
Then there is the “Go big or go home approach” with a statement piece that says “I am a confident women and will wear animal print from head to toe!” It sounds a little scary, but we have found some dresses that totally work – even for work! You can always throw a blazer over it if you are looking to tone it down a bit.
An Animal Print coat is another statement piece that gives a big WOW factor! Not sure if we are that bold yet, but let’s just say one of these might be hanging out in our cart.
Give Animal Print a Try
Whether you are already on board with animal print, or you are just starting to warm up to it, we hope we provided you with inspiration and maybe tempted you with a few new pieces! If you are new to the trend, we recommend baby steps and start with accessories! A cute pair of leopard or snakeskin flats or booties paired with jeans and a tee/sweater is a great way to start.
