Animal Print has been everywhere this summer and it is not going anywhere. I find myself drawn to it like a moth to a flame. There has been so much animal print added to my wardrobe recently that even my husband has declared I have enough! We have come a long way from the days where only Bet Lynch wore leopard print. The pieces available in store and online are beautiful. A variety of colours, textures and prints to suit all tastes, style and budget.
I have collected all of my current animal print favourites for you in this post along with some style suggestions. I won’t lie, many of these have made their way into my wardrobe already. Don’t judge me!
Animal Print – The Dresses
Leopard print is my personal weakness. Here I have chosen two midi dresses, a tea dress and a shirt dress. Midi is my new favourite length. It’s flattering on all ages and figures. The each of these can be dressed up with a strappy heel or down with a pair of white trainers. These will see you into autumn winter too by adding tights, boots or a sweater layered on top.

Of course, there are many other options outside of leopard print! Snake print is HUGE right now and I must admit I adore it. I ordered a beautiful dress from Zara that is now out of stock but I love the two options I have above. The zebra print shirt dress from New Look I ordered last week. I think it is another one of those dresses that will see me into the winter months. The dalmation print wrap dress from Nasty Gal is also a great alternative!

Animal Print – The Skirts/Trousers
I have a thing for skirts right now. A big thing. If you are following my Instagram (you should be by the way) you will have seen my recent hauls. Midi skirts are great with a simple t-shirt, bodysuit, shirt or again, layered with a sweater. You can pair them with runners, boots or sandals. Such a versatile piece to have in your wardrobe. I have purchased the Zara one myself and the material is amazing! The jumpsuit is a great alternative if you have an aversion to skirts. Style it in a similar way.

Animal Print – The Tops
You can always add a hint of animal print to your wardrobe with a shirt, sweater or blazer. These are a few of my favourites. The mango sweater is on my wish list as is the Asos shirt. Pair with denim, black trousers or a pair of leather shorts.

I bought the Zara shirt and Blazer recently and love them both. You can see how I styled the Blazer over on my Instagram! I am also waiting for the New Look Shirt to arrive and I think it’s going to be a winner.

A Little Bit Of Luxe….
If you have the funds, why not treat yourself to a designer piece? I recently added some Rixo and Ganni to my wardrobe and I love the quality. It feels a little extra special. Even if you just pair them with a Primark t-shirt. The Rixo skirt is hot on my wish list.

Final Finishing Touches..
Finish off your outfit with a pair of animal print shoes. The River Island Courts are so similar to the Zara pair I bought last month. I have purchased the Zara snake print beauties and the Mango sling backs are tempting me!

On reflection, perhaps my husband was right. I do have enough animal print in my wardrobe. For now….
