I recently read that a new styling rule was to treat animal prints as your new neutrals by adding them to your everyday outfits alongside color-block sweaters and classic trench coats. However, this rule is not new to me – leopard has always been neutral in my book! I live for a good leopard print and this season Banana Republic killed it with the perfect leopard print. The perfect balance of colors in some of my favorite silhouettes (wide-leg pants).
The second rule was to mix and match – the most modern way to wear animal prints is to clash them. I haven’t tried this trend yet, but I would love to take this look to the next level by swapping out my leather jacket for this AMAZING zebra print jacket from the H&M Studio Collection.
What do you think of these styling rules? Are you ready to treat leopard as a neutral? Clashing animal prints in your future?
