Trend: Animal Prints

March 19, 2012

In the fashion world barely a day goes by that we don’t talk about animal prints. Leopard print coats and shoes, zebra print purses, and even snakeskin accessories have been considered classic must-haves season after season. But what about the other kind of animal print? The I’ve got an picture of an animal on my chest kind? What does everyone think of these?

Stores like ASOS, Forever21, and H&M always seem to have a selection of these animal print tees and shirts in stock but popular high-end designers like Marc Jacobs aren’t being left out. They’ve joined the herd too.

And the animals vary – from the cute penguins to ferocious tigers to neon zebras – it seems like any animal is fit to be printed.

    When I first saw “animal prints” I thought you meant snakeskin, leopard print, etc. This, I am totally against. I don’t like wearing animals nor faking the appearance of wear animal skin. However, I am totally in favor of the image of an animal on clothing. I would love any shirt featuring felines, horses, birds… pretty much anything… love the animals. I especially like the ones features here from Forever 21.

    You have such an eye for trends, Jordana! You’re so right- these animal pics are everywhere on tees for spring. I like this better than the actual animal skin prints we usually see.

    I’m a huge fan of animals used to create a print, like repetitions of birds or fish to create a cool print. I like your headliner stag tee- I think it’s so fun! Would you wear one of these tops?

    (I actually have a tee with a dog on it- a few years ago I bought one for my sis- and one for me, too!)
