These Animal Printed Pieces Are a Surefire Way to Heat Up Summer
Summer brings to mind fresh floral patterns, pastels and crisp white dresses. But, as you’re probably well aware by now, we like to think outside the box. We’re the type that likes to carry a little fall into spring and a touch of summer into winter. So it should come as no surprise that we’re favoring summer animal prints.
We know, we know. It sounds like an oxymoron. But hear us out. While leopard, tiger, zebra, snake and even giraffe prints all seem suited to fall, they can actually work in the warmer months. Especially when teamed with season-appropriate fabrics, like silk, cotton and linen.
And you don’t have to go on a prolonged hunt to find summer-ready options. From a breezy two-piece set in an attention-grabbing cheetah design to a cool romper and even an ocelot-inspired jumpsuit, there are lots of pieces to covet. One quick suggestion: don’t rock animals from head to toe. You can match your top to your bottom, but if you throw in a fierce bucket hat and dad sandals, you’ve gone too far.
