Animal print — a trend that emerges stronger than ever just when you think it is no longer around — is making a bold return for summer. Spotted all over the 2021 spring/summer runways, from zebra prints at Bottega Veneta and leopard prints at Tom Ford, the pattern holds plenty of style potential. Unconvinced? Take a look at Egyptian actor Yasmine Sabri’s leopard print maxi dress which made a strong case for the trend taking stars and It-girls by storm.
Wearing the pattern is all about the colors and the way the pieces are styled. While minimalists can add a statement patterned accessory to elevate their outfits, maximalists can go big by mixing and matching different prints. As it crops up nearly every season, it’s safe to say that animal prints are an investment and fashion risk all in one.
