In my mind, zebra print is like the high-class version of cow print. (I’m from North Carolina and I have an unusual adoration for animal print, so just bear with me, OK?) Zebra gives us the option to play with our clothing—just look at this zebra print sweater, metallic pant, and glitter pump combo.
That’s not to say cow print doesn’t, but it’s not very often we see bovine print in any other color—it’s just black and white. (Or brown and white, I suppose.) Zebra print, however, can be green and black (see image link above), red and white, tan and black, pink and purple (Hello, Lisa Frank), etc. Zebra has range. Just ask Gilda Ambrosio.
If you’re still unconvinced that zebra print can be chic, here are 12 clothing and accessory items that’ll, without a doubt, change your mind.
The Zebra Print Dress
If there’s one thing I love about a dress it’s that it’s a complete outfit on its own, no pants required. Whether you’re going to the club (Redemption) or having a wine date with your bestie (Tanya Taylor), a zebra print dress just works. It says a lot, without saying too much—does that make sense?
Zebra Print Boots
Footwear is the easiest way to try on a trend without diving in headfirst. If I wasn’t so in love with animal print and felt hesitant to try it out, the Attico Zebra Print Tate Boots (see below) would be my first choice.
Zebra Print Accessories
If you’re really skittish, accessories are a cost-effective way to incorporate zebra print into your wardrobe without spending a fortune. That way, if you decide it’s just not for you, it’s not really that big of a deal.
