As far as overlays are concerned, the one print that’s been a classic in the department is animal print. And no matter how much we love embracing our wild side from time to time, there’s always the fear of looking too flashy or over the top when sporting this print. If that has been your concern too, we have a few styling tips and outfit ideas that will help. Animal print separates and accessories are easier to style as compared to dresses.

You must also refrain from styling it with other heavy prints and worse yet, another animal print altogether. Must we mention, these prints are surprisingly versatile as they can be taken from desk to drinks and beyond if they constitute not more than one-third of your ensemble. With no further ado, here are a few styling ideas to get you started. Read on…

Try Sporting Animal Print Accessories
