Mixing animal prints

Over 45s blogger Gail Hanlon mixing animal prints with a zebra jumper from Asos and leopard print ankle boots from Office, worn with black trousers with a gold side stripe
I was fancying a bit of zebra print.  Leopard print is soooo ubiquitous, I thought zebra print would stand out a bit more. But I couldn't resist these cute leopard print ankle boots, and seeing as Vogue suggested wearing both animal prints together, I thought why not?

Side side trousers are still a bit of a thing: mine are from Hush last season.

The jumper (Asos, £28)  is in the latest baggy, loose style. It's not a style I normally embrace and you really need a narrow trouser, but I thought the gold in the trousers looked good with the boots.

The Virginia creeper is about to explode in redness.
I have a leopard print clutch but I that would be over-egging the pudding. Do you agree?  How readily are you embracing the animal magic frenzy?  Bought any new or thrifted leopard or zebra print yet?

  1. Love the two prints together, I would never have thought to do that! #AnythingGoes

  2. I love the idea of mixing prints more and more (which is why I've been on a stripe buying kick). But I hadn't thought of mixing animal prints like this and it's brilliant!!
