An Inside Look: How I Wear Animal Prints

3 months ago

The way I see it, animal prints are either chic af or tacky af

I want my animal prints to look Sex And The City fabulous, and I want to look as rich, sleek, and luxe as I possibly can. Otherwise I'm (literally) not buying it.

The sleeve length, it's actual length, it's colors, the texture- everything about this Just Cavalli dress is right. The Cavalli brand oozes sex appeal, luxury, and femininity, so it's not surprising to me that I'm in love w. it.

I would wear this with black pointed pumps and a mini bag.

I suggest that you wear all of your hair back behind your ears & shoulders, or if you have super long hair, do the pony look. Finish w. light bronzy makeup, a glossy nude/pink lip, and keep your nail polish a sheer nude/natural pinkish tone.

Because there are still vacations to be had


I love an animal print on vacation. It looks authentic.

Normally, I wouldn't suggest animal print on animal print BUT I would wear this Camilla silk kaftan over this Melissa Odabash suit. This look screams luxe and it should feel luxe when wearing it.

It's obnoxious without being obnoxious, and I would do a (positive) double take/mental note if I saw a woman wearing this, b/c I would be inspired.

I'm pretty sure every woman can imagine themselves wearing this bikini, under this kaftan. It's a good feeling.

Michelle Mason


I remember the 1st time I encountered this brand. I was in Barneys on Madison and I saw this black and turquoise mini. I went up to it and the designer was Michelle Mason. I've watched this brand grow ever since, and I've stayed a FAN.

Consistently classic, sexy, silky, and modern- I have yet to get tired of the Michelle Mason brand.

I envision myself looking regal, feeling elegant yet fierce, and enjoying myself in both of these dresses.

Right now I'd pair them with simple strappy (possibly lace-up) stiletto sandals. I would also do a strappy flat w. the 1st dress.

Regality


Camilla is another brand that just screams luxe to me. I lit don't think of anything but "luxury beachwear" when hearing the name Camilla.

This monokini is reversible BUT I really like the side that it's on rn.

I'm wearing these high waisted bikini bottoms with a simple black triangle bikini top. Less is more sometimes, and here is a dope example.

Just the black bikini top + these bottoms = the perfect bathing suit. It's v grown-up without looking grown-up.

Sophistication


See, I told you it can be done. Whether you want 2 cash in on the trend, are stuck wondering how to wear it, or if you are trying something new, animal prints can look intensely sophisticated.

NICHOLAS does a great job here and I love how each dress is constructed. The deep v-neck, the cowl neck, the sleeves, the dainty spaghetti straps, the thigh-high slits. It's SAFE 2 say I'm all in w. these dresses.

It may look like a lot of animal print on 1 page, but don't be fooled.


I literally chose ONLY things that I would wear and I'm not even an animal print person. BUT, I can recognize good pieces when I see them, and these are good pieces
