Animal prints is a fashion trend that comes and goes. Exotic reptile prints were on the runway for Fall/Winter; Miu Miu featured a ton of snakeskin coats in captivating colors and Marni accessorized its collection in a similar motif. This is a powerful fashion statement that makes women feel concurrently sexy, alluring, seductive, and glamorous. Throughout history, animal prints have been worn as a sign of status and power. Indigenous societies go as far to believe that wearing a print harnesses the animal’s powers.
I mean, who doesn’t like to channel their inner spirit animal every once in awhile? Especially if this means slithering into a pair of python printed pants. Even though there is this fine line between looking chic or tacky, I encourage you to not shy away from the trend. My best advice is to start small: look for clean fitted silhouettes, stray away from too many accessories, and avoid layering multiple prints. The goal here is to take advantage of an opportunity to look fierce before it passes again.
