Go Wild – Animals Are Always In Style!

This post is inspired by one of the very wearable spring trends on my-wardrobe.com – Animal print. I’ve always liked a bit of animal print, and let’s face it, it’s a trend that always seems to be “in”. This season though the prints are more muted and subtle, and along with the always favourite leopard we are being treated to snake and zebra on everything from blouses to shoes, to dresses.

For those of you who have the figure and are brave enough why not bring some animal into your wardrobe with a pair of printed jeans from J Brand? Mixed with a cosy jumper now and a T-shirt later.

If you aren’t quite brave enough to go that far confine it to a snake print bag by Marc by Marc Jacobs or a beautiful soft leopard print scarf by Diane Von Furstenberg.

I’m struggling to pick a favourite from the pieces below and would love to go really wild by ordering several, apart from the leopard heels which I LOVE but know I couldn’t wear and the skinny jeans that wouldn’t love my body, I’d take the rest. I might even prowl around the house wearing multiple pieces as queen of my own jungle!

And as a final thought, or excuse actually, as animal print is always stylish you can persuade yourself that these are investment pieces that your wardrobe deserves.
