The last couple of years have been all about the animal prints and while they are still definitely a thing, this season the look is transitioning more into a subtler style of “animal” print. Let’s call it a blend of animal print and florals for Spring/Summer- the nature print. Think jungle prints, tropicals, full size animals, giant oversize florals, safari prints, anything that makes you feel those Tarzan nature vibes.
I love this trend because it gives me major outdoorsy Spring feelings and also makes me want to take a tropical vacation. This adorable smocked Tanya Taylor dress has an oversize tropical floral print and is light as a feather. It’s perfect for beachside vacations, barefoot in the sand with a mai tai. I paired it with a woven bucket bag from Loeffler Randall (adorable alternative here) and some raffia hoops and you’re ready for anything.
This denim shirtdress from Stella McCartney is a literal animal print. The tigers sprinkled throughout the floral pattern give it a whimsical nod to animal print and the denim collar and buttons keep it casual. Paired with cowboy boots or your favorite sneakers, this dress is perfect for summertime errands or the park. Whatever a lazy weekend afternoon has on the schedule. Shirtdress alternatives here and here.
For a night out look, we have this amazing Johana Ortiz tiger theme maxi skirt, keeping to the literal animal print. Bringing the look into a more serious vibe, I paired it with a Dior saddle belt and slingback pumps with a Prada silk button down (great alternative here). The fishnet cami adds a little edge to keep the skirt from being too whimsical and fun for a serious evening event. A Lady Dior bag round off the outfit for a feminine touch.
No matter how you choose to style your nature prints this season, they’ll definitely have you heading outdoors to show them off.
