Sometimes I instinctively follow the call of the wild…now if you’re picturing me on Safari or fighting my way through an exotic realm with a machete I must stop you there, and disappoint you…I’m not that wild. My way of channeling jungle vibes is a much more sartorial kind, Animal Print to be precise. There is something about this particular pattern that has always captivated me and I especially love to make an outfit roar by incorporating a bit of leopard print. Now styling it can be intimidating – I know, because I already made several beastly bad animal print mistakes myself – but served in the right doses it can look divine. I personally prefer to pick one printed piece at a time and pair it with either cool denims or keep the rest monochromatic to make the leo pop – that way it never looks trashy but classy instead.
My latest prey is this beautiful leo-print blouse by Airfield. I chose it for the simple reason that it perfectly combines feminine elegance with the feline wild. It’s animal print in the most polished sense. And the fact it’s a pussy bow blouse is an additional fun factor that can be worn either buttoned-up for a more sophisticated look or sassily unbuttoned. Either way it’s fab but both become even more exciting when you put on some badass red lipstick!
Long story short: Every girl needs at least one animal print piece in her closet. You agree? Ok then, let’s get wild and rock that urban jungle!
