Animal prints at work & play

“Who says animal prints are only for Autumn/Winter?  There is no such rule; the only rule is to pick a lighter hue, like leopard spots on a white background or reptile print/ texture in a pastel shade.”
I recently wrote an article on Spring Fashion Ideas for ‘Indian Link’. See ‘Press’ section of the blog. I was keen to interpret SS13/14 runway trends into wearable fashion and the animal print one particularly struck my fancy!

Multiplying the effect of the reptile print/ texture by teaming this breezy top with a Hidesign croc bag gives this outfit a sophisticated look. A convenient pairing with plum suede flats makes it an easy going style for work. I’m thinking more along the lines of client meeting for a styling session!

 Isn’t this an impressive, polished and chic look? And now, take this look to an evening out affair….


Simply swap the shoes and bags! I added a croc textured clutch this time in stark black and super high heel sandals for that glam touch.


Subtle details can make a big difference to a look..I’m hinting at the black nail polish and ring.
