Let me just get this out of the way and start by answering the question “Is Zebra the New Leopard? NO, absolutely not, zebra is 100% NOT the new leopard because there will never be a new leopard print, because leopard print will never go out of style. I keep seeing all these articles saying that leopard is back for Fall 2018, but leopard can’t be back because it never went away! In my mind all animal print is basically a neutral and never has and never will be “out”.
Zebra print on the other hand, while it didn’t replace leopard print, it is absolutely in for Fall! And while I love the classic black and white stripes, I can’t get enough of the black and brown print of this pleated midi skirt. Plus we all know how I feel about pleated midi length skirts and dresses…they’re literally my favorite (see here, here, here, etc.)!
Now if you’re not incorporating a few animal print pieces into your closet this Fall and Winter you need to be! Whether it’s a skirt, dress, bag, scarf, shoes…anything and everything is acceptable! Designers sent head to toe animal print looks down the runway of their FW18 shows and even if you’re not willing to dress that extreme, a touch of animal print goes a long way! I’ve been eyeing this belt and these booties for a few weeks now so don’t be surprised if and when you see them pop up in a future post!
