Animal Print skirts and animal print in general are becoming a new must have wardrobe staple for a lot of women. It’s such a popular trend that’s being worn by all the stylish fashion influencers. Everyone is in it! Even babies. There’s no escaping this trend ladies. There are several ways you can style this trend to look and feel your best. Now I will be the first to say, animal print can look very tacky if you aren’t styling it right. It’s all in how you wear it. If you ever wondered how else you can style your animal print skirts while looking chic and fashionable, then this article is for you.
The key to a successful slay in an animal print skirt is to buy an animal printed skirt that can be dressed up or down and one that be worn in more than one season. There are lots of them out there that are available. Don’t focus on only buying printed skirts that can be worn in the summer time. Listen, versatility is my middle name! I am not making the mega influencer bucks yet, so It’s important I spend my money on staple pieces that can be worn for several different occasions and multiple seasons. Don’t focus your attention on formal looking printed skirts or skirts that are uber casual. You want to select a skirt that is a happy medium. You can wear it to work, play, networking events, birthday parties, you name it. It should be versatile enough where you can think of 4 different occasions you can wear it for.
Shoes. Shoes. Shoes. and MORE SHOES! Your shoes believe it or not help bring your outfit all together. The type of shoes you wear will depend on what type of look you’re shooting for. If you’re aiming for more of a casual/chic look, sandals or cute sneakers will meet your needs. If you want to step your shoe game up, go for a chic/edgy look. I would recommend a low chunky heel (like the one I’m wearing) a platform sneaker, a wedge, or comfortable heel. Im too flat footed, so a true heel is out of the picture for me. I’m only sticking with low chunky strap heels and wedges as they provide more support for my super flat feet.
I’m breaking this down into sections so it’s a little easier to digest all of the information so you can be on your way to slaying in your printed skirt. The next important step into slaying successfully in your printed skirt is your top. Shirts with phrases, logos, and rock bands included on them are honestly your best bet if you want to look and feel the most fashionable and stylish. I don’t know what it is but a shirt with an interesting phrase that makes a strong statement about who you are makes you feel like you can conquer the world.I feel so empowered and confident when rocking this look. I noticed a girl at my job wore a very similar look; which prompted this post.
Fashion is everywhere. It’s all around us. Take inspiration not only from me, but also the people in your immediate surroundings. I wanted to place my own spin on the look, so I made sure to grab a pair of shoes that were comfortable for me and ones that I knew would also look stylish. Key driving point here; dress for you and what makes you feel comfortable! That is apart of your style. If you prefer to wear sneakers, rock only sneakers and have fun with wearing eclectic ones while you’re at it.
Last but not least, your accessories. Your accessories matter if you want to stand out from the crowd. If standing out while also looking stylish, elegant, and staying true to yourself is important to you, incorporating accessories into your look is the last and final step to complete your successful slay.
