Trend alert: take a walk on the wild side
This spring be ready to give in to your wild side because animal print is back with a roar! Leopard print and tiger stripes are looks to watch out for and with the welcome return of these classic prints, be prepared to add an injection of colour and texture to your summer wardrobes.
Animal print and bold images scream summer days and beach trips, this up-and-coming season delivers a range of both colourful and monochrome pieces, giving classic looks a current twist. This Emma Cook silk kaftan teams chic black and white silk with a fierce and bold image, creating an on trend summer essential set to take off this year.
As well as beach wear, animal print also creates a sense of sophisticated and feminine style. Karen Millen’s tiger print shorts teamed with heels or gladiator sandals and chunky gold bracelets is a look that mixes tribal with class, perfect for spring and summer 2013.
The return of classic prints welcomes a range of gorgeous footwear that uses these popular patterns with on trend designs to create stylish pieces. Sam Edelman’s Lyla Leather Shoe mixes much loved leopard print with the very current buckled ankle strap high heel, delivering a fabulously stylish look that encompasses the classic with a modern stamp.
If high heels aren’t for you, the trend extends to casual wear too; trainers, pumps and gladiator sandals covered in animal print designs are also set to take off over the summer months along with an array of accessories including clutch bags and belts which remind us why the classic style has come around again.
Animal print is a look that can be worn subtly or boldly, one that is perfect for the beach, casual or evening wear. It is a style that offers a mix of tribal chic and sophisticated glamour, delivering a range of pieces, which can suit anyone uniquely.
