What is the animal print piece in this ensemble and what do you like about it?
The cardigan and the clutch. I love the size and design of the clutch and the overall rock star edge it gives off. As for the cardigan, the cropped length makes it a sweet piece but the print adds a certain zing to it.
How else would you style it?
I would wear the cardigan all buttoned up and belted on the waist with a white polo worn underneath. I'll pair it with a pleated brown leather skirt and my signature sky-high boots.
What do you love about the animal prints trend?
I love how animal print pieces have so much character and appeal. They easily add dash to the simplest of outfits, be it an all-white ensemble with an animal print clutch or an LBD with leopard print pumps.
How do you build your outfit around it?
I wanted to add some punch to my look by pairing the animal print cardigan with red-hot jeans. Kept the top simple with a black satin racer back top.
How did you make the look your own?
I added some edge to the outfit through sky-high platforms boots, silver accessories and a pair of black sunglasses with a cat's eye design.
How do you wear the trend without looking over the top?
Never go overboard with animal prints or you might just end up looking cheap or “old”.
How do you accessorize this trend?
With statement pieces of jewelry such as a metal choker necklace or raw and rustic silver pieces.
What's your favorite Mango piece in this ensemble?
It would have to be the leopard print clutch. It's an amazing accessory that can help spruce up the drabbest of outfits.
How would you wear this trend during the day? How about a night out?
For a daytime look, I would wear an animal print piece with casual pieces such as a pair of high-waist leather shorts and wedges. For a night out with friends, I'll channel a vamp-y look with a sleeveless sheer animal print top, leather midi pencil skirt and red platform pumps.
