Most women either love or hate animal print with very little in between. It either conjures images of timeless and chic or trashy and tacky. Who can forget Anne Bancroft in “The Graduate” or Marilyn Monroe in “Gentleman Prefer Blondes”?
These prints are a perennial favorite for many women and a personal favorite of mine. I do have a few garments in leopard print but prefer to wear it in accessories. I seldom wear more than one piece at a time but many women like to layer them on. It’s personal preference and you should let your comfort level be your guide.
Leopard is the most popular animal print with cheetah, zebra, crocodile, and alligator bringing up the rear.
Classic animal prints may not be in your most flattering color but don’t let that stop you. They can all be found in colors to flatter your complexion.
I got this Croc print tote for fall and couldn’t wait to start carrying it. Its soft gray goes with everything and spans seasons. Here it is at the swimming pool.. holding my parasol, sunscreen, water bottle and other sundry necessities. This gray leopard jacket is one of my favorites because it flatters my coloring and coordinates with everything in my wardrobe.
I’ll be adding more animal print to my wardrobe this year but will be hunting for them in my colors. The selection is vast this season and now’s the time to find them in shades that flatter you.
