This season, you’re only as stylish as your outfit is wild. Splashy spots, searing stripes and a touch of slinky snake add up to spring’s take on exuberant dressing. The good news? It has a vintage appeal, speaking of a wardrobe built over the years rather than in one retail hit – you may well find a leopard print coat or a pair of snakeskin boots lurking at the back of your closet. And if you need a quick fix? Shop Vogue‘s edit of the snappiest animal print pieces to buy now, with a little inspo from the street style set.
The high-vis blouse
Silky, sheer, and slinky: make the animal printed shirt your new best friend this season.
The thigh-skimming jacket
Make leopard your new neutral: try a utility cut knotted over a crisp white shirt or plump for a short-sleeved shrug – the perfect summer wedding cover-up for when temperatures drop.
The slinky skirt
Supercharge your workaday look: switch out a black pencil skirt for something more decorated and feel instantly pepped.
The tailored coat
The forecast shows sun but you just know the skies will cloud over. Opt for the touchy-feely, swishy opera coat or take on daft-chic with a printed cotton alternative.
The wowza bag
Black/brown/beige well-behaved tote bag, begone. Now’s the time to invest in a fizzy reinvention of the day-to-day receptacle – and who could resist a cheery animal print iteration?
