What is the animal print piece in this ensemble and what do you like about it?
My belt, bag and romper. For my belt, I love its hairy texture. For my bag, I like that it's just the right size and its straps are long. They somehow made the bag less dressy and more laid back. Finally, for my romper, I love its color, the leopard print isn't as loud as the usual leopard print.
How else would you style it?
I'd probably style them separately—the zebra belt with a plain blouse and wide leg trousers for a corporate-chic look; the leopard-print bag with a casual black dress and oxfords for a young and casual look; the romper with classic heels and a knitted cardigan for a more feminine look.
What do you love about the animal prints trend?
What's not too love? Animal prints are attention-grabbers! It's so easy to style them up.
How do you build your outfit around it?
It depends on my mood. The great thing about animal prints is that they are very versatile. Because animal prints come in various shapes and colors, you can do a lot of different looks.
How did you make the look your own?
For this look, I chose pieces in earth tones. I wanted to keep my look natural and still easy on the eyes even though I combined a few prints together.
How do you wear the trend without looking over the top?
Pay attention to the color and size of the print.
How do you accessorize this trend?
If the print you have on is already loud, don't accessorize too much. Accessories are meant to compliment what you are wearing so make sure they don't clash with the print.
Additional styling tips?
If you want to do print on print, never pair two large prints together.
What's your favorite Mango piece in this ensemble?
I'm actually wearing Mango from head to toe so it's hard to decide! Probably the shoes? They've very comfortable!
How would you wear this trend during the day? How about a night out?
During the day, I'll wear an animal-print dress with oxfords and minimal accessories. For a night out, I'll wear a sheer leopard-print long sleeved blouse with shorts and sky-high heels.
