Style-seekers Wear Animal Prints for Snowy Play Days and Winter Sun Escapes
We’re wild about animal print this winter. As Gen Z grows into their stride, so environmental issues are generating the coolest looks. It’s not just cruel to wear leopard fur, it’s seriously passé—faux is what we do now. Whether you’re getting ready for the temperature drop, or packing for a winter escape, let’s explore some great fakes!
A leopard will never change its spots, and yes, this big cat’s persistent pattern will always be a classic. As demonstrated by the faux fur Leo Jacket from Roberto Cavalli Vintage. Layering your skins keeps the animal print look fresh. Here, a blouse by The Kooples has plenty of grrrr. Finish with lashings of fringing, just as Konplott’s crystallized ‘Dracula Bride’ jewelry suite has done.
Snuggle into cashmere and nurture your inner ice queen with Pringle of Scotland’s stylish hymn to the rare snow leopard. Konplott’s sparkling statement necklace ‘King Arthur’ and crystal-studded earrings by Frangos Jewelry will introduce a little winter color.
Even more rare is the red-spotted leopard! Indeed, you’ll only find those particular markings on an Equipment blouse. Enhance its splashes of color with crimson crystal-studded statement jewelry, like these earrings by Frangos Jewelry.
When the temperature really drops, this tiger-stripe faux fur jacket by Zadig & Voltaire has what it takes to keep you cozy. Team it with Garaya’s crystal cicada motif hat for some sparkly frosting.
To send the temperature soaring during your winter sun getaway, fashionable yellow lends a wonderful glow. We adore this yellow-ocher zebra print dress by Zadig & Voltaire, especially when teamed with shimmering stacks of Satellite jewelry.
Snakeskin is another longstanding fashion favorite. Keep cool under the holiday sun in Just Cavalli’s viper-print blazer. Lighting up burnished skin, Swarovski-crystallized jewelry by Tria Alfa and Sonia Heilbron will make you sssssizzle!
