Animal print clothing is an abject necessity in any closet—and one that transcends seasonality. Whereas plaids feel autumnal and florals feel distinctly spring-friendly, animal prints are a year-round affair. There’s no season to shop them—meaning there’s no season not to shop them. (Consider that last sentence your excuse to stock up on the best animal print pieces on the market any time you so desire.)
Given animal print clothing’s truly timeless appeal, we make it a habit to load up on animal prints regularly—like, probably once a month, or at least once a season. And this decision’s an easy one to justify: Not only do animal prints offer versatility in the realm of year-round wear, they also offer versatility in the realm of year-after-year wear. Animal prints have been worn by our mothers before us, and their foremothers before the; they’re a classic, and their trendiness has spanned half-centuries. So the question of whether or not to drop $50 on that leopard print top we’ve been eyeing is a pretty easy one to answer. It’s an obvious yes—because that leopard print top is hella chic, and it will probably remain hella chic over the course of our lifetime.
And of course, leopard prints aren’t the only thing on the sartorial menu. Tiger stripes are, too. So are smaller cheetah spots. Snakeskin—a 2018 fashion trend that promises to pervade 2019, as well—is also in high supply. And even cow spots are making their way into the animal print sphere. The market’s selection of animal print pieces is vast and varied, making now the perfect time to start your monthly (or at least, seasonal) ritual of stocking up the genre of clothing.
