Obsessions: Animal prints

From left to right: Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Claudia Schiffer, Brigitte Bardot, Kate Moss, Debbie Harry, Naomi Campbell and Shania Twain.

Thanks to their potential to be both statement-maker and wearable staple, animal prints are having a real moment. From snakeskin textures to leopard spots, there’s an array of ways to embrace the trend and we’ve handpicked 8 style muses to inspire you this season.

To lend a cool touch to your outfits, take note of Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn who energised their iconic looks with a simple printed accessory. We’d suggest styling the Cornelia Triple Zip Bag with understated knitwear and black jeans to add a wild edge. Or if you love Claudia Schiffer’s take on the trend as much as we do, mix leather textures with a combination of leopard accessories - when it comes to autumn/winter 18, more is definitely more.

To make an impact, look to investment coats this season - think Brigitte Bardot and Kate Moss in their cold-weather essentials. Elevate outerwear further by teaming it with an animal print dress or go all out in printed separates. Our most-wanted Animal Wrap Print Skirt  is a wardrobe mainstay that can be reworked for every occasion. And if you want to go head-to-toe in leopard, draw inspiration from Naomi Campbell and Debbie Harry, who both channelled unforgettable all-over looks.

For a relaxed approach, treat animal prints as your new neutrals by adding them to everyday outfits. Leopard print tops are perfectly paired with signature jeans and trainers for dressing down. And for the evening? Channel Shania Twain circa 1991 and team a printed top with our Slim-Fit Leather Trousers for extra attitude. 

However you choose to weave the trend into your wardrobe, look to our irresistible animal prints for inspiration and take a walk on the wild side this season.
