From snakeskin to leopard, I’m wild about animal prints. While I’ve already highlighted some of my favorite leopard print fashions this season, today I’m focusing strictly on the finishing touches — accessories! Even if you’re print shy, a pop of animal print is a great way to take baby steps with your wardrobe. And since these prints can act as a neutral, animal print accessories usually go with everything.
Snake Print Accessories
Snake print is the new black! From boots to bags, this print is making its way across the style spectrum. I’m partial to the classic black and white look. But I also love when they color block the print with other hues.
Tiger Print Accessories
When you think of animal print accessories, you probably don’t think tiger first. But don’t dismiss this surprisingly chic motif. You’ll definitely stand out in this print when everyone else is wearing leopard or snakeskin.
Leopard Print Accessories
Probably the most popular of the bunch, leopard is currently one of the hottest prints this season. There are plenty of options to choose from with this classic print. Don’t be afraid to choose a colorful version for a bolder look.
Cheetah Print Accessories
So what’s the difference between cheetah and leopard print? Cheetah print features solid black spots while leopard print has a brown background with black shapes that resemble a horseshoe or circle. Even retailers get it wrong, often labeling cheetah print as leopard. But you can’t go wrong with either.
Zebra Print Accessories
I like to think of zebra as the wild child of the bunch. The contrast of the print and color is stark. If you like to rock zebra print, chances are you’re not shy about your style. Zebra is such a fun print and as an accessory it can add such an unexpected element to any look.
Tortoise Shell Accessories
While you’ll always find tortoise shell eyewear, lately I’ve been seeing a ton of tortoise shell box clutches. They’re an affordable and stylish option. Plus it’s a classic clutch that will go with everything. I love matching my accessories in the same color or print family, like the earrings and clutch above. It’s a great way to turn an animal print into a neutral.
I’m a classic girl so I adore leopard for my animal print accessories. I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of that print. What’s your favorite animal print to rock?
