I love black and I love animal print, so this outfit is a match made in heaven! In my post on the top trends for autumn/winter and again in my keys pieces for the season, animal print is listed. Yes, it is so important that it requires a double cameo.

Animal print looks really classy done right. I always look for good prints on higher quality materials, as anything too shiny starts to look cheap. When I started out with animal print, I bought prints in the natural colouring of the animals’ skin, like snowleopard, zebra or brown snake. Now when I’m more confident in posing as an animal double, I find brightly coloured prints amazing, especially in accessories like clutches and scarves. Fit is always a major concern, though, as I think classic shapes is the way to go to build an elegant look.

I find that one piece of animal print is normally enough in one outfit, teamed with classic pieces in neutral colours like black and brown. The best animal print investment of them all is a pair of calfhair animal print heels or flats. Last summer I finally managed to score a pair of flats, but I am still on the hunt for the perfect leopard heels. One of these days…
