WILD SIDE!

Animal print is a clothing and fashion style in which the garment is made to resemble the pattern of the skin and fur of an animal such as a Leopard, Cheetah, Zebra, Tiger, Dog, Giraffe etc. Animal print is also used for handbags and footwear and even some jewelry.  A major difference between animal prints and fur clothing is that animal prints today very often use fake fur instead of animal coat.




Houndstooth
Houndstooth, also known as dogstooth, is a duotone textile pattern characterized by broken checks or abstract four-pointed shapes, often in black and white, although other colours are used.

Animal print is a very classic trend and never seems to go out of style. Every season and every year, its the same print but different types of  interpretation. When done right, animal prints are absolutely gorgeous!

HOW TO WEAR ANIMAL PRINT

1. Wearing animal prints should be done with utmost care. It requires careful downplaying cos of its obvious nature.
2. Choose only one part of your outfit to go wild. For example, if your top is a leopard/tiger print, let the skirt or pants be non-animal. If it’s your dress that has the print, then let your shoes be plain black or nude.
A touch of the same print on your footwear only works when the plain shade is dominant. 
3. You would never go wrong if you take only a single item of animal print, either for your top, bag, shoes or scarf, while the rest of your outfit is entirely neutrals.
4. A new way to wear animal print is to team it with bright colors. I love this style idea because colors are actually used to steal some attention from the print, a great way to tone it down.
