How to Wear Animal Print in Summer

I finally gave this bold print a try!

I never thought I would have and wear an animal print dress, especially in summer! The wildest print I have every worn was the dress from last week! I could not see myself wearing such a bold print. Especially being a plus size woman I really did not think it could be done tastefully. I thought it would make me look bigger! No one wants to look bigger than what they are weight wise. At least no one that I personally know! So I resigned myself to believe that a person my size could only pull of animal print in an accessory but not as a dress, skirt, top, or pants. I just did not want to draw attention to myself or my body.

But then a nice woman with fabulous fashion sense from church gave me two huge bags of clothing. One being which this  Michael Kors zebra print dress. I thought it looked cute but for someone else. I also felt that animal print was something you usually wore in fall. So I politely put in my closet. Hoping that I would wear it someday! I tried it on on more than once! But I guess the third time was the charm because I feel in love with it! If you desire to wear animal print here are a few tips to make it easier for you to style it for summer or any season!

Buy what fits you 

The first time to remember is to pick something that you feel comfortable wearing. I choose to wear this dress because it felt good to wear. Though I was not sold on the print at first, love the length of the dress and the fit of it. So whatever print you choose make sure you find something that fits your body.

You can wear it as shoes 

This has always been my first choice! To wear a cute leopard flat to work or when I was off work!  An animal print flat would look great with a denim dress or with a black dress for work.  

Animal Print Look Good with Neutrals 

Such a bold print looks good with neutrals! That is why I paired this dress with neutral shoes and accessories. A flowy neutral dress would look good with a pair of neutral sandals this summer. 

Wear  an Animal Print T-Shirt 

A  t- shirt is a staple for summer but a printed one makes it not so basic anymore. Wear an animal print top with your favorite denim skirt or maybe even a white skirt. 

Wearing animal print can be tricky but if you choose what style, fit, print, and color that looks right on you, it will be easy!
