We are having the best Summer for weather that I can ever remember, it’s hard to imagine that in a couple of months we will be back in coats and jumpers and wooly hats!
I don’t want this lovely Summer to end but there is one thing about the approach of Autumn and Winter that I am looking forward to and that’s the fashion. I’m going to do a series of blog posts focusing on the main trends for Autumn / Winter so that you can start shopping with them in mind. The first trend (and also my absolute favourite) is Animal Print!
Everyone has a little bit of leopard print in their wardrobe but for Autumn Winter you need to get ready to go really wild! (I’m sorry I get my shit jokes from my dad…). We aren’t just talking a flash of leopard here, what you are ideally looking for is head to toe animal print and we don’t have to stick with big cats – zebra and snake print are massive too!
Feel free to clash your prints so two different leopard prints in different colours are great, or a zebra top with a snake skirt, you can have so much fun with this trend! If you are reading this thinking ‘ I don’t really like animals!’ don’t panic! You can start really small and add more if you like it. A zebra or leopard print top with some black trousers really isn’t too wild and even if you just wear all black with some leopard print shoes you will be seriously upping your style game.
