If I’ve learned one thing about college, it’s that you meet those people who you cannot imagine what life was like before knowing them. My roommates are those people for me and we have a tradition where we watch a movie before bed every night. The other night, much to the dismay of my other roommates and me, one of them decided on Cheetah Girls. Okay, I’ll admit that it’s quite entertaining but their excessive use of cheetah print made me cringe. However, this sparked my fashion train of thought. Animal print has been featured this season on the runway and in magazines, but how do college women incorporate this trend into their wardrobe? There’s a fine line between too much and perfection but this trend could be a great part of your wardrobe this season.
This Fashionista did animal print just right. Her use of the printed top paired with neutral colored skinny jeans offsets the busyness of the print. I love cheetah print because it adds a little bit of fun to your attire. Pairing it with the black skinny jeans allows for a feminine shape. Boots are the go to shoe for fall and riding boots or combat boots will never fail you. Her teal cardigan provides a fantastic pop of color and it’s not too much as to offset the cheetah print.
Through her use of dark neutrals, this outfit could easily go from day to night. Swap the boots for a great pair of pumps and the cardigan for a chic colored blazer. This would provide a fun, flirty element for night. Top it off with a neutral toned clutch.
This fall, there are many different animal print options. Animal print skirts could be your new best friend. Combined with some neutral tights, a light sweater and boots, you’ll look great. Animal print sweaters are another great option that will keep you warm and comfortable. Don’t be afraid to add a touch of fun to your outfits with animal print accessories, like a printed scarf.
As Thanksgiving quickly approaches, I know I’ll be thankful for the wonderful friends I’ve made here at school. And you can bet that I’ll be thankful for them when I’m rocking a trendy touch of animal print. So don’t get too “cheetahlicious” but do not be hesitant to try this trend for fall.
