There’s no denying it, animal print is winning in the fashion world right now. Whether you’re in classic leopard print or this season’s take on snake, if you’re not into animal print, you better get used to it quickly because it’s the biggest look for fall. Again.
At Shop It To Me, we’re into animal print in a big way. In fact, we see it as more of a neutral. Particularly when it comes to leopard and natural or grey snake prints, it can go so chicly with any other colors and always looks so good with black. If you view animal prints as gaudy or OTT, maybe here, we can change your mind because this season, there are plenty of key animal print pieces that would seriously update your wardrobe in all the right ways.
Who’s particularly good at animal print?
Leopard and snake were all over the runways when it came to the designers at fashion week. From the super sleek leopard print stockings we saw at Victoria Beckham to the trims at Louis Vuitton, there was no escaping the statement prints for fall and winter this year. When it comes to the high street, brands like TopShop consistently get prints just right, meaning whether you love to shop designer or high street, there’s plenty of choice for you.

So, let’s dive in. Here are our top 10 animal print fashion picks you need for your updated fall wardrobe.
Animal Print Courtesy of Topshop
We actually picked 4 of our top 10 pieces from Topshop because the brand just nails the look to high street perfection. Super-affordable, Topshop is the British label that knows how to get the trends right and when they do animal print, they really do it!
Our first pick, this animal print midi/maxi dress is just the dream. Easy neutral tones that would pair with so many other hues from beige to turquoise, this look is super transitional for the fall season and easy to style both up and down for lots of different uses. We’re obsessed with the slightly puffed sleeves, which nails another trend as well as the modest neckline and the length means you can get creative with your footwear. Opt for anything from trainers to heels to knee-high boots and they all work like a dream.
Our second pick is this super-cute midi skirt. Who says you have to wear dark colors in fall and winter!? Not us! We love how this snake print has been done in an ultra-feminine and girly pink palette which gives it a whole new vibe. Perfect for the last days of the summer, this skirt can be styled for winter with just the addition of a slouchy sweater in grey or black and long boots.
Another great transitional skirt, we’re obsessed with the color of this snake print palette! In sturdy denim, this mini is perfect for fall and styles just as well with tights and boots as it does with bare legs and sneakers!
And because Topshop does trend accessories so damn well, we needed to add in this bag to the mix. Obsessed with the bright neon orange (another huge trend) this belt bag literally has it all.
So, we’ve always stated that we’re huge fans of Paige for trend pieces and denim and they’ve not let us down in terms of leopard print. A simple slip is an absolute must for all wardrobes now so why not do it in leopard and nail two trends in one. We love the muted tones of this slinky ice blue leopard, perfect to style up with anything from black or grey to a pop of neon.
Saint Laurent Love
So, this is a seriously high-end pick (but don’t worry we’ve found a less expensive alternative next so scroll if designer isn’t for you!!) This beautifully made coat from Saint Laurent is the ultimate in how to do leopard as a coat with pure class. Single-breasted and with simple flat pockets, this super-chic coat is almost blazer-like which makes it so chic to style with both casual and formal outfits.
Kendall + Kylie Killing It in Leopard
Not cheap but much less expensive than the Saint Laurent, we LOVE this Kendall + Kylie option if you love the faux fur leopard idea but not the price tag!! It’s a super cool palette of leopard that keeps it subtle and the length makes it perfect to wear in a dressier way with heels. Looks so warm too!
Chloé’s Influencer-Friendly Boots
If you’re into Chloé, you’ll already know these boots. They’re a firm favorite with influencers and bloggers all over the social sphere and there’s good reason – they’re amazing!! In a dark mustard color palette, they take snake to the next level and with cut out slices, they style any look super cool. Wear them with leather jeans and a biker for ultimate rock and roll vibes or team them with straight leg blue jeans for a more laid-back look.
Rag & Bone Jeans
The easiest possible way to inject some animal print into your everyday wardrobe in a subtle way? These jeans. We’re obsessed with them. The palette is great and super flattering and also make it easy to style with anything from black and white to pops of blue or pink. With just a touch of distress, it’s easy to dress these up with heels and a chic lace cami too.
Go All Out with a Leopard Print Jumpsuit
Our last pick is this incredible jumpsuit. Jumpsuits are a great dress alternative for fall and winter and super-flattering to pretty much every shape. So, why not go all out and do it in a bold leopard print?? Plus, the cinched, belted waist and flared-leg trousers are absolutely EVERYTHING.
Whether you love a loud and proud statement look when it comes to your animal prints or you like to keep it a little bit more minimal, as long as it’s there, your wardrobe is winning. Although it’s a huge trend for fall, prints like this are actually classic so refresh your looks with a taste leopard or snake and you’ll be wearing it for seasons to come. Now that’s what we call a good investment!
