Animal Print: How To Nail It


After months of *exclusively* wearing trackies, hoodies and oversized comfies, I’m ready to emerge from my cosy cocoon like a (social) butterfly who’s ready for cocktail nights and garden parties.

And, honestly, I’m kinda over those subtle prints and play-it-safe colour palettes that have populated my floor-drobe since early last year. Goodbye tired leggings and loungewear, hello bold prints and statement pieces.

The first stop in rejuvenating my wardrobe? Animal print. Dabbling in fashion’s favourite zebra and leopard prints is a quick, low effort way of putting a wild twist on an everyday outfit. So with that in mind, here’s my spotlight on, well, all things spotted and striped.


One Shade Wonders

Get yo’ greens via Jonah, the suit-all shirt dress that teams subtle leopard print with vibrant green hues. This high drama mini is gorgeous with strappy black heels – and your go-to girl squad at happy hour.
