Animal prints are making their presence known in a big way this Fall. Most of my clients have a love/hate relationship with them. The hate may come from the element of drama they tend to communicate. Animal prints can be bold, daring, and exotic. Which doesn't resonate with everyone's personal style. But depending on the color scheme and animal being imitated, they can also become a subtle pattern that emphasizes your personal coloring well. If you’re ready to take a walk on the wild side, here’s how to wear these prints without looking like a wild thing.
1. Match your hair color to the a color in the pattern.
2. Repeat eye and blush colors in the pattern.
3. Keep the background color the same degree of warm or cool as your skin. This one is more complicated to navigate. Here are some examples of repetition of skin color done well and not so well.
Animal print patterns are a chic, classic print that also happen to be trending right now. When you keep in mind these three points, you’ll look like a class act instead of a wild hot mess.
