Faux animal print bags add luxe to your summer look
During the hot summer afternoons, my fashion mantra is to dress it down. After all, you don’t want shimmery bold prints that make you look tacky. But I love using faux animal print bags to add luxe to my summer style.
Top-notch fashion houses are celebrating the hotter months by paying homage to wild beasts without being cruel. Everyone from Lady Gaga to Eva Longoria has been flaunting this animal-friendly trend with flair.
You can check out a wide range of prints out there. Here are some of my favorites:
1. Zebra handbags
Chic black and white zebra print bags are a versatile accessory for the summer. The pattern is a breath of fresh air from the usual black or brown and is classic enough to be carried to work. Of course, you can check out some edgier colors like blues, greens or even fuchsia. But then it’s safer to not carry this style to work.
2. Snake prints
Subtle snake prints work well on almost all kinds of shapes and patterns, but particularly with clutch bags and wallets. You can pick from solid colors or opt for a blend of hues. A metallic touch adds that oomph factor to the design.
3. Giraffe print
A less common animal print and in my opinion, most undervalued, is perhaps the giraffe. Thankfully, fashion labels have started experimenting more with this print. Even though they look best on beige’s and browns, a touch of bright contrasts on the handles and sides gives it a chic touch. You can flaunt them in tote or even crossbody styles.
- Don’t be scared to experiment beyond your comfort zone with faux animal print bag this summer.
- Opt for something that you don’t owe already.
- Spruce up a neutral outfit with a bright and colorful bag.
