In this little blog series, we’re going to take an Autumn Winter trend, and show you how to wear it – three ways. This week, the animal print shirt.
Being on trend is all very well, but getting more wear out of your on-trend piece is better. Its all about being clever with the pieces you buy, and seeing how they can be adapted for various occasions. This week, the animal print shirt – for a business trip, Sunday lunch down the pub, or a fashion bloggers event.
This is how we would style this zebra print animal print shirt from H&M (£12.99) for those three occasions.
1. Sunday Lunch Down The Pub
It’s Sunday, so keep everything, well, kinda slouchy, but still with a bit of fashion in there! Make a bit of an effort! Team your animal print shirt with flared jeans, a slouchy, cosy cardigan, and add some height and a pop of colour with bold wedges. If you want to shake Sunday up a bit, add a slouchy bag, but in a contrasting animal print – like this fantastic leopard print one from Gap.
2. The Business Trip
Off on business and need to keep it smart? But can you add a little bit of an edge? Then choose a plain suit – skirt or trousers, and add this animal print shirt, tucked in and pristine, for a modern take on a business look. A large, colourful bag brightens things up a bit more.
3. Fashion Bloggers Event
Invited to a fashion bloggers event? Then it’s time to ramp up the ‘fashion’ a little bit, and stand out from the crowd. Mix your animal print shirt with patterned trousers, add some cut-out on trend ankle boots, a crazy clutch – how cute is this cat one – and some statement jewellery completes the look.
