It’s time to take a walk on the wild side this season. Summer 2020 is all about animal prints and neutral, earthy tones, so skip the typical florals this summer in favour of a more daring approach.
Animal prints don’t only have to be for the young fashionistas, this timeless trend can work for all ages and styles, and is perfect to mix and match.
Dolce and Gabbana's SS20 show leads this seasons take on the safari trend, with their leopard print runway showing off matching sets, and animal print pieces paired with statement heels.
Our new Mid-Summer collection of Jeffrey Campbell shoes blend prowling prints like leopard, snake and zebra, presented with nature-inspired hues, from moss green to deep reds, natural beiges, metallic and even neon orange – Featuring faux textures and printed fabrics.
If you’re keen to give this look a try but aren’t quite sure how to go about it, then you’re in luck. Here are our tips on how to rock this season’s wildest trend.
Bold Prints + Colors
This new take on the trend takes a feminine approach to utilitarian style - replacing chunky shoes and accessories in favour of heels, cut out ankle boots and sneakers.
When wearing our bold printed shoes, try pairing them with neutral colours, using your shoes as your statement accessory. Tie it all together with elements of the colour and print of the shoes in your outfit, eg. with your jewellery, scarf or belt with items like utility shirts, with jeans, wrap dress or a matching set.
Wear animal print sneakers with a classic white button-down and your favourite pair of jeans for a carefree look and go glam with one of our killer heels with a great dress.
Neutral Animal Print
If you're opting for a more neutral print on your shoes, don’t be afraid to play with colour in your outfit. Pair metallic prints with a utility jumpsuit or romper or rock wide-leg trousers with heels for an effortless summer evening look and cargo to bring you a beachy sundowner look.
Incorporate another animal printed piece like a bag or an accessory like a belt or hair clip or band.
If you want to stick to neutral and earth-toned shoes, without the prints, the possibilities are endless. Pair them with khaki trousers/shorts and a loose button-up or crocheted vest for a summer look that can easily be transitioned into early autumn. Add animal prints with accessories or go big with a bold printed jacket or even a full printed suit. For a more casual look wear neutral heels with printed trousers or jeans with a printed blouse.
Complete your look with a straw hat or bag.
