How To Wear Animal Print Clothing

As one of the most perpetual trends of the fashion industry, it doesn’t take an expert to see that animal print isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

With this said, it is a good idea to train your eyes to develop the ability to spot which adornments would best enhance the striking patterns of animal print. After all, it is all about creating a sophisticated and elegant outfit. Read on to find out a few key tips for styling animal print clothing…

Find a Balance

Animal print is often the focus of your outfit so it is advised that you find a happy medium between your choice of print and the regular clothing that is going to help it ‘pop’. The old saying ‘less is more’ can be applied to animal print clothing and so a good place to start is to choose just one or two items with a print and accessorise it with harmonising additions. For example, an animal print shirt looks great with regular trousers or jeans. Having said this, there are a number of influencers who regularly wear clashing and contrasting prints to great effect. If you want to be more daring with your choice of print, a simple search on Instagram of ‘animal print clothing’ will show a wealth of different outfit ideas.

Pop of Colour

Adding a splash of colour to your animal print can be a very stylish look. In fact, there are dozens of different shades to choose from in order to suit your personal preferences. For example, those with a daring side may choose to opt for bright colours like neon hues whereas those looking to make a subtle impact may choose neutral colours instead.


In the age of mass production, it is not only clothing that comes in animal print. In fact, there are hundreds of different accessories too including shoes, wallets, belts and even hats. It is important to note that accessorising animal print is often where people go wrong as they often believe that you should pair the garment with the accessory. Whilst this can work with regular clothing, animal print is a little bit more complex. For instance, if you are wearing an animal print dress then it is already the focal point of your outfit and adding accessories with a similar print could overpower the style.

When it comes to accessorising your outfit, it is important that you are able to recognise the most flattering pieces. In fact, this is especially important when you are dealing with a detailed pattern like animal print.
