Style Q&A: Animal Prints

What’s your advice on wearing animal prints? I feel like there’s a fine line between “just enough” and “too much”. – Ashleigh

You’re absolutely right, Ashleigh – thanks for the great question! I think everyone needs a little animal print in their life. Whether it be leopard, snake, lizard etc., I admire women who accessorize their look with animal prints. I’m a sucker for anything python but find that shoes and bags really give a look the right amount of added “cool factor”.

The absolute master of reptilian accessories is Azzedine Alaïa!!! Here are a few great spring pieces:

If you’re up for bold color this season, go for this Celine Neon Python Bag that will WAKE UP your white look.

Leopard-print accessories are great finishing touches to classic looks as well.

On another note, I don’t say NO to an animal dress or blouse, I just defer to not-so-literal prints. These Acne tonal grey snake dress and brown snake top are two ways to keep it modern this spring. – Sarah
