Care to walk on the wild side? This season designers such as Victoria Beckham, Tom Ford, Calvin Klein and Carolina Herrera looked into the animal kingdom for style inspiration and put animal prints such as cheetah, leopard and snakeskin on the runway. Rendered in tailored silhouettes via pantsuits or cozy cover ups such as coats alongside the usual separates such as blouses, skirts, pants and dresses—it’s no doubt that the trend is indeed back with a vengeance. In expected neutrals or shocking bright hues, update your wardrobe and don this statement piece in either a head to toe look or break it with solids, there is really no fashion rule here except for this: don’t forget to choose one that embodies your animal spirit.
