5 Ways to Wear Animal Print


Animal Print is one of the biggest trends for 2019! It was massive last year & continues to be one of fashions’ hottest must haves! This isn't a new trend, it has in fact been around for many decades - it really is one of those perennial trends & can be very chic & stylish! The Royals are proof that animal
print is a trend that can be timeless & elegant - Queen Elizabeth herself has been photographed wearing a leopard print coat!



 And how stunning does Princess Diana look in her leopard print dress!


 Kate Middleton looking effortlessly chic in animal print!



Meghan Markle reminds us that we can simply add the trend to our footwear to stay current in our style!




We really don’t need to go head to toe leopard print like BeyoncĂ© & Bella Hadid to take part in this seasons’ must have trend!! J




These prints were everywhere on the catwalks for Spring Summer 2019 from Designers like Tom Ford, Victoria Beckham & Saint Laurent! This trend has been transformed & brought to us by many of our high street favourites too!

We might think of animal print as a little Kat Slater or hard to wear! So I want to share 5 ways to style this years' fashion statement! I will show you how to add animal print to your wardrobe – even if only in a small way!

1. Footwear - 

I had to start with shoes as I am totally obsessed!! I will admit when it comes to the animal print trend I wasn't too sure if I wanted to incorporate it into my shoe collection. It all changed when I found the most perfect Aquazzura inspired heels in the faux snake print - I am literally in love! This shoe is definitely a way of bringing animal print to your style in a chic & sophisticated way!



Shoes are a recent purchase from Penneys Newbridge

I will style these with a sleek all black outfit - these heels keep me on trend but in a classy way!
If you are more of a flats girl then here are some pretty ballerina pumps to consider!

Designers like Chloe are trending with these fab snake print cut out boots!




There are lots of high street alternatives when it comes to cowboy or Chelsea boot styles! Wear animal print & the cowboy style & you are ticking off two of 2019's biggest fashion trends!

2. Accessories

If you are not into wearing animal print clothes you can always opt for the print in your accessories. It is a stylish & effective way to incorporate the trend into your wardrobe.
Why not opt for a handbag to add a trendy addition to your outfit.

3. Skirts

I am absolutely loving the midi skirt especially in a satin fabric. I really like this animal print version I picked up recently. It is so easy to style up & down. I styled with a slogan t-shirt, leather jacket & thigh high boots for a more relaxed vibe! Then I styled with a black lace sleeve polo & sock boots for a slightly dressier look!

A skirt is a great trend option – wear with t-shirts, shirts & cosy knits. Style for day with comfy boots & add heels for a more glam look.

Animal print dresses are everywhere this season! The queen of fashion Victoria Beckham has included the trend in her 2018 fall collection! Here she is looking super stylish wearing her own design!



Other celebs like Kim Kardashian are also jumping on the trend too!


Maybe consider adding a dress to your wardrobe to keep you on trend this season!
