This tunic was a mega-bargain and I loved the easy fit and asymmetric neckline … but once I got it home, it felt like a whole lotta leopard. Somehow more leopard-y than a leopard-print dress, even! Could be because it’s such a high-contrast print. ANYHOO I finally discovered that a plain pair of dark-wash skinnies worked to tone it down, and I could still add some sassy red accents.

Do you wear animal prints? Whole garments, accents, or both? Got a favorite?

  • Great neckline!! I think the red bits balance out the boldness of the leopard too.

  • Leslie

    I almost always pair leopard prints with red. Red top & black pants? Leopard shoes!

  • I do like and wear animal prints, and I think you styled this one very nicely — the black skinnies are so cool and modern!

  • Gorgeous print! I love the funky neckline.

    I’ve tried everything from zebra to ‘cat’ prints to snakeskin. I love it, but it’s just not my style. I like more ‘realistic’ bug prints or other slightly more out there creatures, but classic leopard I am not. I’ll stick with a basic stripe or tiedye.

      Exactly my viewpoint…it’s just not a look for me, but I like it on other people. As Anonymous stated below, I often think it looks really good on blond people (which I am not).

  • That tunic is gorgeous on you. Those brown spots compliment your hair and the contrast suits you, too. And the fit, it´s like it´s made to measure.

    I have one skirt in that grey snakeskin print. My husband loves it, but the skirt is so lightweight, that I feel naked in it. If it fell off, I really wouldn´t notice, and that makes me feel very awkward. But I keep it for him.

  • The neckline is great! I like the way you paired it with the black skinnies and pops of red. I like animal prints of all shapes, sizes and varieties because they can go from casual to dressy.

    i am a pale redhead, and whenever i put on animal print i feel like i look like a cheap ho. my best friend is blond, really tall with rather wide shoulders and a sporty figure can rock a sheer animal print blouse even with a matching belt and flats with skinny jeans and looks just plain cool.

    Oh, yes, I have a lot of animal print pieces. Leopard, zebra, and snake. Shoes, belts, cardigans, blouses, skirts, scarves. My favorite is an Ann Taylor pencil skirt in a leopard print.

    I have to say I wish animal prints (that is, prints that mimic the skin of an animal, not the dachshund print you had the other day) would go away already. I do not enjoy them at all and they’re taking up all the market space for prints in general, which I love.

    • Susan

      I’m with you – I love prints, but I don’t get animal prints. I don’t mind them on others, but they don’t call to me at all.

  • Shannon

    The shoes are to die for. I just stumbled across your site and am absolutely loving it. Thanks!

  • Love the red accents! This is why fashion bloggers are so fascinating! No two are alike….
