Hi, guys! If you know me well, I gave several interviews where I was asked what I would never wear, and my answer was an animal print. I always found them vulgar and tasteless. Every time I saw a woman in animal print, I thought, "Yikes, it looks so weird." Well, I think the problem was that animal printed clothes were styled wrongly or made from the wrong fabric.
Last year, designers decided to bring us so many animal prints that I reconsidered my resistance. Also, when I visited Paris Fashion Week, I saw how carefully animal printed pieces were worn in order to not disturb the eyes. So, I gave it a try! The first thing I purchased was a brown mini denim skirt with animal print. I tried it, and it didn't look so bad when I combined it with a black hoodie and a black blazer. Later, I saw a denim jacket on sale at Topshop. I thought again, why not?!
When we traveled to Malta before Christmas, we got to enjoy warm weather, and I thought it would a great reason to style my new jacket. I knew right away that the only way to style it was to create a monochrome look or to mix with only 2-3 other colors. I wore one of my favorite cotton T-shirts from Bershka (find a similar one here) along with my Zara trousers that I purchased back in summer. To give some extra chicness, I added my new Topshop animal printed jacket that completed my entire outfit. For me, the main rules with animal printed garments are to stay a bit low and not mix two different prints together. The less you have, the better it looks.
