Street Style: Try The Animal-Print Mash-Up

If you haven’t already rushed out to buy this week’s copy of LOOK, then we can only assume that firstly, you’ve been busy as no other excuse will do, and secondly, that you haven’t yet spotted the new way to wear your animal prints.

One lady who has clearly picked up her mag, however, is Sophia, who we noticed rocking a triple leopard hit in a Forever 21 jumper and River Island pencil skirt. She then accessorised to make it a hat trick with a New Look clutch.

While we admire her more is more mantra, Sophia also knows that to avoid looking like you’ve fallen into Mel B’s Spice Girls wardrobe, it’s important to select pieces in different colours with subtly different prints and classic accessories (see her heeled Zara loafers).

On the other hand, you could opt for a more literal approach to animal prints à la Naomi, who is channelling the spirit of Diane Von Furstenberg’s SS14 catwalk in her Hearts & Bows giraffe-print playsuit. Being a canny sort of style guru, she has layered this over a blue Boohoo shirt and then added the pièce de résistance – her leopard maxi kimono (also from Boohoo). With the additions of her Boohoo hat and New Look cage sandals, this look can’t be described as anything but safari chic. Yep, we said it.

So what are you waiting for? Don’t be timid – pile on your animal prints and strut to the shops to buy that LOOK mag you haven’t got yet.
