There’s something about wearing animal print that’s inherently empowering. Perhaps it’s the feeling of invoking the strength of a majestic animal, like a fierce leopard or an agile cheetah. Or, maybe, it’s simply the beauty of the natural pattern that’s consistently identifiable but never uniform. The subtle variance in colors, size, and style means we fall in love with the nuances of animal print season after season.
Right now, we’re especially drawn to the power of accessories that embrace wild prints both subtle and bold. We’re seeing the white sneaker trend adopt pops of wild prints, demonstrating that animal print in the concrete jungle always works. We also love how some pieces play with print proportion, like Manolo Blahnik’s Taylerbibo Calf Hair D’Orsay Pumps, which contrast small and large leopard prints for a bold statement. This season, zebra is proving that monochrome can be anything but boring, and it’s propelled this Fontana Milano bag to the top of our fall shopping list.
Scroll on, as we’ve rounded up some of our favorite shoes and bags to help you tap into your strong inner wild side.
