The legendary fashion editor of Harper's Bazaar and Vogue magazines, Diana Vreelland was famously quoted as saying "I’ve never met a leopard print I didn’t like."
"Fake is fashion's best weapon - and leopard is its finest example." - Fashion Journalist Hilary Alexander
Fashion icon and Vogue editor Anna Wintour, synonymous with classic chic style, has inspired some of today’s biggest trends and has helped propel animal print to new heights.
Fashion journalist Gerry Cupido shares with us her take on how to wear animal print:
"Don’t be afraid to take a walk on the wild side. For an edgier take on animal prints lookout for bolder colours instead of the usual neutral tones. Acid colours are all the rage right now.
"There’s nothing wrong with wearing the print from head to toe, but not everyone is brave enough to do so. If you’re more of a kitten than a lion, then wear one animal print item and keep the rest of your outfit a solid colour. Even if it’s just a pair of print heels of pumps. "Accessories make a great (and usually inexpensive) way to express the animal in you."
Remember, there isn’t only one way to wear animal prints. You can keep it subtle for day-to-day office wear, or be daring and wear animal prints head to toe to get everyone’s heads turning. Do what you’re comfortable with, but feel free to play around!
