Move over feminine florals; spring is less than a month away and we are lusting after bold and fierce animal prints here at Crossroads! Before we introduce you to some of spring’s fiercest patterns, let’s take a moment and give credit to one of the most beloved and timeless prints that is definitely at the root of one of 2019’s biggest trends: leopard print. Leopard print has proven, time and time again that it is here to stay. Luxurious, eye-catching and versatile, this print has been a staple in wardrobes for decades!
Now that spring is around the corner, we are starting to see more predators come out of the jungle and make their presence known in the world of fashion! From sultry snakeskin to contrasting zebra stripes, these wild patterns are starting to find their way into our spring wardrobes and we couldn’t be more obsessed! We’ve been seeing animal prints galore on the gram lately, so we’ve rounded up some stylish, yet wearable ways to incorporate this trend into your spring line-up!
Hear Me Roar
What do you get when you mix one of spring’s hottest colors, marigold yellow, with a wild tiger print?! The perfect, trendy skirt! We love how this statement piece is balanced out with a simple white tee!
I’m not usually one for snakes IRL, but I am definitely a fan of these reptile printed booties! Adding animal print to your footwear line-up is a stylish way to incorporate some texture into any look!
Zebra, The New Neutral
Keep in Classic
At the end of the day, this print will always have a special place in our hearts, and in our wardrobes! Since spring weather can still be a bit unpredictable, wear a glam, printed winter coat over some jeans and a simple tank for a fail-proof look!
