2. Avoid generic leopard prints.
Wearing an animal print where the actual print and design looks interesting and unique gives it an air of elegance and sophistication. This makes it look and feel less generic.
3. Fabric type is important.
The material that the animal printed garment is made from is important. To ensure your prints look luxurious, ensure they are printed on high quality, durable materials like cotton, silk and non-stretch materials.
4. No obvious repeating patterns.
The key to looking lovely and luxe when wearing leopard, is to make sure your print doesn’t have an obvious start and end. You also should ensure that your prints are bright and sharp. Blurry prints are cheap looking.
5. Simple, medium-sized prints are best.
You don’t need an overly detailed, realistic animal print to look expensive. Nowadays, the simpler the print, the better. Medium sized animal prints also trump huge or tiny prints for a more chic look.
Animal prints are everywhere. The fashion world has jumped right in and is bathing in a sea of wild cats. If you want to keep current and on trend, you’ll need to inject some animal prints into your closest. I hope that the ideas on tips on wearing animal prints will inspire you to take the plunge if you haven’t done so already.

- No obvious repeating patterns
- Simple, medium-sized prints are best
