Fashion Tip: Know Your Animals
We’ve all probably got over excited about one animal print item in our closet and that drove us to go to a different store and buy more animal print. Then you realize oops, I forgot the shoes to match and you go to another store to get more animal print. I know we’ve all done this at least once. Recently at a conference, I noticed a lady with a zebra print and red outfit on. Sounds like a great fashion combination right? Please continue reading. She wore a zebra print jacket with a red tank top underneath. A zebra print skirt that didn’t quite match the jacket, but since it’s zebra print it has to match right? No, it doesn’t, but keep reading. If that much zebra print and red wasn’t enough, she had on zebra print shoes and purse trimmed in red..
Ladies this is where you should draw the line! Know your animals. First off, animal print should NOT be a complete outfit UNLESS you are able to purchase it as one full outfit. That way you are not spending mixing and matching. Please also note that just because it’s the same animal print doesn’t mean it matches. For example, if you go into a store and they have a zebra print business suit or a snake skin dress. These type of outfits are great because they are all one outfit and they will always match. If you decide that you are not the type to buy the full animal print outfit then you should be wearing animal print as an accent to keep your outfit unpredictable.
