Do’s and Dont’s: Animal Print

‘To wear or not to wear’ is not the question that arises with this print. It has always managed to stay in the limelight since its debut in the 60s. But, being popular doesn’t imply that this print is easy to handle. With its bold and edgy characteristics styling the print with separates and accessories becomes a challenge. SC gives ways to carry this bold print like a lioness.



Do pair it with your solids. Animal prints work wonders with your staples. Pair an animal print top with your denims or black trousers. You would end up making a gallant statement with a dash of elegance.

Don’t go all out. Just because you want to make a dauntless avowal doesn’t mean you have to don the  a print head-to-toe. After all you are not looking to enter a jungle.

Do accessorise the print. Adding accessories would just enhance the pay-off of the print.


Don’t clutter it. As the print speaks volumes for itself, it doesn’t make sense to hoard it with accessories. Keep them minimal.

Do wear animal print accessories. To sprinkle your outfit with some spitfire charm choose an animal print bag or shoes. You would notice the boost it would give your appearance and your confidence.



Don’t overdo with the print. You don’t need to go all out with it and get the print on your hair. Nor do you need to couple different accessories of the same print. It would appear too loud.
