Animal Prints are the new neutral

Just when you thought leopard had used up its nine lives, the popular print gets another shot at the big time. But this go-round, the catty pattern isn’t alone. Over the past two seasons, designers have fallen back in love with everything from tigers to zebras and even snakes. The beauty of animal prints is that, despite their bold background, they actually function as neutrals you can build almost any outfit around.

The recent Fall 2018 collections were packed with animal prints. Carolina Herrera opted to include actual animals with some of her animal prints, decorating dresses with a range of critters. Proenza Schouler favored an exotic tiger print in both coat and maxi dress form. Area was all about the leopard, from clutches to jackets to pants to halter tops. Victoria Beckham, Tom Ford, Calvin Klein, Diane von Furstenberg, R13, Zadig & Voltaire and Michael Kors also joined in on the feral fun.
