March comes in like a lion, goes out like a lamb. We took inspiration from that phrase and came up with subtle animal print. Animal print can be aggressive and bold like a lion. But it can also be soft like a lamb. Check out these ways to get the perfect amount of animal print in your look.
Leopard print can be loud. When you change the color, however, it’s less in your face. Something like a blue leopard print crossbody handbag takes the focus off the print and puts it on the color. The print adds that extra something to make the item special. Another good example of this a light purple snakeskin clutch.
Choosing a low key neutral color version of an animal print also works well. Snakeskin patterned leggings, for example, are gray and black which is less loud than a leopard print of light brown and black. Not to mention that a snakeskin pair of leggings could be easily paired with bolder colors.
Animal print doesn’t need to be just the pattern of the animal. It can be the animal itself as a pattern. The trick is to keep the pattern small. You don’t want it to be obvious that you have sharks or penguins all over your top. It’s better when someone approaches you and gets the fun detail from up close.
