And, who said animal print was only for the wilderness? Another fashion trend for Fall 2012 is going wild – with print that is. Fall is much more than wearing white, it’s about a natural pattern. It’s about dressing with an edge.
Animal print has long been associated with a red lip, pleather pants and faux furs. It’s time to bring its chic-ness back! Several designers are filtering animal print into their collections. Anything from accessories, clothing to handbags are adorned with these unrestrained patterns.
One of the most enjoyable aspects of animal print – no two patterns are the same. Every stripe, swirl or dot is naturally designed uniquely. There is even variation in color, as some prints are slightly darker or lighter than others.
Aside from variation, animal print is timeless. It has been a trend that has survived the test of time. Perhaps, because it is a pattern that can be matched with many variations of clothing. Many fashion mishaps occur when there is too much print. Animal print is meant to enhance or to add distinction to an outfit.
Too much animal print can be a distraction and give off a bewildered appeal. Don’t fall victim! Instead, stand out in a distinguished way and make your fashion sense known! Grrrrr
