How Lazy Girls Like Me Wear
From my photographs, you’ve probably noticed that I don’t wear a lot of print. Aside from check, animal print and spots, I don’t really favour florals, large shapes and patterns. It’s just personal choice and I don’t really enjoy wearing them.
You’ll have seen in this post how I style polka dot pieces, so today I’m going to talk about animal print. I know lots of people are put off wearing prints, especially when a head to toe look is brought into the equation but for me it’s one of the easiest prints to style. Leopard, Zebra and Dalmatian are my three favourite prints and I’ve the same styling principals for each.
In short, the easiest thing is to pull the colours out. So with my leopard dress featured in this post (last season Topshop), I’ve pulled out the black and nude tones and continued them through my accessories. This would also be a great look with brown, cream, nude or black knee boots.
When I’m in the mood to mix things up a bit and inject some colour, I’ll use one popping shade, like my Red V lipstick red bag. In the warmer months I’ll wear some turquoise accessories and some matching sandals. Bright yellow also works really well as does a bottle green in Autumn. Whatever you decide to wear, have fun and enjoy it!
