How to wear animal print this season

• Mix and match prints
Leopard is usually more of a neutral that is used with black but this season we are seeing more looks mixing in different patterns with animal print.

• Wear once piece at a time
No matter how much you love animal, it's good to set a limit. Incorporating too much animal print can be a bit overwhelming. If you wear a leopard coat no need to add the leopard boots, purse and scarfs. Stick with one statement piece.

• Add a pop of colour
Leopard can look great paired with vibrant hues like pink, green, yellow and red. have a play around and see if these mixes can work for you.

• A statment coat
The coat is a timeless and surprisingly versatile statement piece. Whether it’s paired with jeans and a tee or LDB, the leopard coat is a fashion lover’s best friend.

• Incorporate the print into your accessories too
Incorporate the trend into scarfs, earrings bags and shoes for an understated touch. This is perfect if you don’t want to indulge too much into the animal print trend.
