THIS WEEK’S TREND: ANIMAL PRINTS
If you would have told me last year that I’ll be wearing leopard print skirt I wouldn’t have believed it. But I guess that’s the thing with trends… They come and little by little we start to love them (or at least some of them). Oxford dictionaires describe trend as a general direction in which something is developing or changing.
This autumn animal prints are going to be huge they’ve been seen on catwalks from Calvin Klein, Michael Kors to Victoria Beckham, Tom Ford and more. And now you can shop animal prints in most of high street shops and from the most popular online retailers.
My rule of thumb for trends is go cheap. Why? Well, because trend is not something that is going to last forever, so I wouldn’t invest in a designer leopard print skirt because I know that in a few seasons it will be totally out. So to me it makes sense invest into the capsule wardrobe pieces and incorporate cheaper trendy items. The exception would be if current trend is actually part of your style and that is something you always loved and will love because that is your style. But if something is trending and you like it don’t fall into traps. Trend is a short period hype about something and it most definitely go away.
Leopard print in variations and different colours is the most popular. But more and more wild prints are getting its way in. I’ve seen tiger, snake and zebra prints so far. I’m, personally, not sure how more wild I’m going to go. But this leopard print skirt is so on point and I totally love it. I also own leopard print t-shirt, which I wore a few times but it didn’t make its way to my favourites.
