Animal prints go in that rare category of trends that never go out of style. This wild trend can be found in pieces ranging from scarves to shoes and was seen across all of the runway shows this past year. Have you channeled your inner animal instinct and tried out this ever-lasting trend?

Animal prints though timeless are often given a bad reputation for being tacky or difficult to style. Don’t let the misconception alter your decision on trying out such a great trend. Not sure about how to start, or where to start your animal print journey? Start off small with accessories such as a leopard snood or belt to ease your way into the idea of wearing a print. To those whom are more daring, try a pair of leopard shoes or a jacket.

This Fashionista exemplifies how wearing animal print, specifically a leopard print, can be worn refreshingly, yet simply. She is supporting the animal print trend with a twist by sporting a pair of leopard jeans in a different color, compared to the traditional black and tan. This Fashionista styled her leopard jeans as a statement piece. Keeping the other pieces worn in her outfit simple, by pairing her jeans with a long sleeved black shirt along with black ankle booties. This is a perfect example of safely and comfortably wearing the animal print trend. Comfort is a big factor when it comes to this Fashionista picking out what to wear everyday.
