animal print accessories Wingz

You can’t fail to have noticed that everyone is going a bit loopy over animal print accessories at the moment. It’s not just accessories, either, just the flash of a Zara shirt with a leopard print fabric pocket (worn by Olivia Palermo) sent all the fashion editors off into a spin recently.

Fashion week was awash with gorgeous animal prints, some more overstated than others, and whether we like it or not, animal print accessories appear to be the way to go.

If you’re ready to embrace the trend in all its glory, an animal print coat could be a stunning way to impress people at the works Christmas party. Yes, I went there with the ‘c’ word. It has been suggested that combining two on-trend looks in one, by wearing a leopard print coat over the top of a black corset, would be ideal for getting the party started, but that might be a little bit too daring for any of us who aren’t quite ready to expose our entire bodies to the November and December elements.

Coat draping is everywhere at the moment, the coat-as-a-shrug or ‘crug’ popped up in so many of the Street Style roundups from the Fashion Weeks. Try elegantly draping a flowing animal print coat over a white shirt and jeans for an update on the retro barmaid look that won’t look dated.

You won’t have to look far to find gorgeous animal print boots on the high street and online. Pick your favourite and team them up with jeans and a plain top for a casual look. Add a bit of colour on a night out with bright accessories in lovely clashing shades (plum works well with most animal prints) and you can upscale the look for a party with a short skirt, black tights and a lace top.
