On Trend: Animal Prints
Animal Prints have been making a comeback in the world of fashion in fresh, updated colors and designs. Snakeskin, cheetah, zebra...found on everything from shoes and clutches to blouses and dresses. A great way to pull of this look without crossing into "tacky" territory, is to pair the animal print with a solid color such as black, olive green, brown, or gray. The same rule can be applied to animal prints used in home decor - a little goes a long way! Opposite of fashion, I think this look is fairly timeless when it comes to interior design. I'll never tire of a cool faux zebra rug placed in a living room or a cheetah print throw pillow on an accent chair. When used the right way, animal prints are a great way to kick your outfit or home up a notch! How do you feel about this trend? Do you prefer it more in fashion or interiors design? Please share your thoughts!
