Dear Animal Print...

Today's post is a collaboration with some special ladies to bring you a bit of a mish-mash on how animal print fits into our personal style. Here's everyone's take!


1. Alexandra - Rhymes with Fashion 
2. Sofia - Stylishly in Love 
3. Aracely - Mama Fashion Files 
4. Karen - Your Stylist Karen 
5. Kenya -  Kenya L Fashion Blog 

I love that everyone's look is completely different. While Alexandra decided to go with some lovely print mixing with a plaid shirt, Sofia and Kenya decided to stick to a classic tan and black color palette. Anyone else think Sofia's addition of a leopard print waist belt the cutest thing? And I love Kenya's leather on leather take which is perfect for a chilly fall! Aracely decided to wear colored leopard print in her trousers, but wear a classic animal print with her shoe - love the color going on in this look! How cute are those ankle straps? Karen decided to go all out with almost head to toe leopard print - the nude pumps and simple accessories really soften up the look beautifully.

My take on animal print? I kept things simple with a scarf!

Old Navy Scarf (still available!), J Crew Jacket, Gap Skinnies, Joe Fresh Sweater (old), Rebecca Minkoff MAC mini, BGBGeneration Bangle, Asos Bracelet, Lucky Brand Boots

How do you usually style animal print? Do you stick to animal print accessories (like me!) or love a bold animal print piece?

Hope you liked this collaboration! Don't forget to check out these ladies' blogs for more info on their looks!


  1. That was so much fun! I really like to see how everyone styled their looks differently! You scarf was a simple edition but makes a statement all on its own!


  2. Love your scarf, the pop of orange is perfect! I am much like you and only do accessories, usually a scarf, belt or my leopard pumps. I am not bold enough yet for a top or skirt!

  3. Love how the scarf pops with the all black ensemble! I need to go get one. I enjoyed our style challenge! :)

  4. That scarf is gorgeous!! I do own a leopard top, but I mostly wear leopard print as an accessory.

  5. Although I do love animal prints, I do typically tend to keep it relatively low key.

  6. I love this Annick! Your scarf is the perfect touch for your look! Adds a great pop to the slick all black! I am so glad when did this challenge! It was so much fun and everyone did such a great job rep'ing their own style!

  9. Love the scarf! I love leopard! Prob too much!

  10. I love how you styled the print, Annick! While I love big bold prints, I always feel like they overwhelm me since I have a smaller frame. Therefore, I definitely like to style them in smaller does like scarves or a skinny belt. I also love when animal print in different colors Aracely's blue leopard pants - so unexpected and fun!
