Like all good things, moderation is the name of the game. Resist the urge to wear your animal print from head-to-toe. Balance it with a solid color. If you are wearing an animal print dress, wear a solid jacket (a jacket makes most any outfit more polished, you know) or a “neutral print” jacket such as a close pinstripe. Wear an animal print jacket or sweater over a solid dress. If you have a pair of the (really sharp!) animal print pumps, wear them with a solid or “neutral print” dress, skirt or pair of slacks.
My style.com lookbook has a few of my favorite animal print looks. Some are office-ready; some may require a bit of modification. Check it out for some ideas on incorporating animal prints into your professional image.
