I do love me a good ol’ fashion trend. Annoyingly though, many of these trends tend to pass over men’s fashion – leaving us sticking to ‘classics. I mean seriously, men rarely have anything that truly comes in and out of fashion. I guess it’s down to the fact that we probably won’t buy something that will be obsolete in a few months.

One trend that is sweeping women’s fashion at the moment is animal prints. They’ve drifted in and out over the years. When they’re in – they’re everywhere. When they’re out – they seem ridiculous. But let’s face it – animal prints are pretty cool. 

 

As long as you don’t wear a onesie with a giraffe-print, you can’t really go wrong. However, let’s be frank. Under NO circumstances is it OK to wear actual endangered animal pelt. Cultural-wear aside, the synthetic version works JUST fine.

I found an amazing leopard print coat at BooHoo.com, which was cheap and cheerful. It added a really fun flare to what I was wearing. Walking around London, I felt like I was on some sort of urban safari. Crossing the plains of Hackney- trying to get to my nearest watering hole (pub haha). To be honest, I would probably stay away from animal print trousers, as they tend to be quite unflattering, causing shapes to appear larger – unless that is what you’re after ;). For example, if you’re trying to keep slim- I would avoid Zebra stripes, and stick to smaller prints like cheetah. You also don’t need to stick to traditional colours or prints. Purple cheetah print? Brilliant! Green giraffe? Amazing.

If you’re unsure of how to start with animal prints – I would say to start off with something small, and non-traditional colours. Glasses, pocket squares, t-shirts work super well. You can always work your way up to a jacket in due time. I don’t think the trend is going anywhere anytime soon.
