The new animal print

Is an animal print. I’m particularly fond of this clever little birdie top from Hope.

…as well as these sly little foxes from Tory Burch.

This Tibi top takes the look in a rather grown-up, sophisticated direction.

…while this puppy-print number absolutely does not.


Isn’t it cool how the leaping rabbits on this cardigan almost create a houndstooth-like print?

Sophia Costas makes a whole bunch of animal print scarves—everything from polar bears to hedgehogs to panthers.  But I think the llama‘s my favorite.

    So can a gal just about to hit 40 pull this off ? I love the owl intarsia sweater by Burberry Prorsum and wondered if I could wear something similar without looking like I raided a tween girl’s closet. An inquiring mind would like to know.

    • Absolutely! (says a 43-year-old)

      Several of these prints look almost abstract. The pieces I’m steering clear are those with a large figure on them, like J.Crew’s French Hen.

      I agree with Raina. These prints are subtle and grown up. Teens prefer the big-ass animal prints, preferably with some sort of logo on it. I love all of these prints.

    I bought Erin Fetherston’s bunny dress when it was re-released by Target last year and I get so many compliments on it. I’m not a cutesy person by any stretch but the print made me see how it’s sometimes nice to be whimsical. I’d wear most of these – I’m into a bird-print dress at Old Navy right now too.
