Trends come and trends go, but some live on longer than others. Many have predicted the downfall of animal prints, and many have been wrong. While its iterations change—cheetah spots one season, and zebra stripes the next, but the high impact of an animal print cannot be denied for those looking to make a statement. If you’re looking to level up your post-pandemic wardrobe, here are the celebrity-inspired looks that will help you get there:
Malaika Arora’s Head-To-Toe Print Look
If your sartorial mantra is to go bold or go home, you’ll want to bookmark Malaika Arora’s impactful look for your next apres-hours soirée. Known for her fashion-forward choices, the star opted for a corset top and co-ordinated skirt in an all-over leopard print. The finishing touch came in the form of an of-the-moment jewellery style: layered chain necklaces.
Sara Ali Khan’s Sequin Zebra Print Pants
The party season of last year may have been spent indoors as we collectively sought refuge from newer variants, but there’s no reason why you can’t make up for lost time now. For further notes, look no further than Sara Ali Khan’s statement-making pants that offered up zebra print doused in a standout hue of pink and drenched in sequins. What’s not to like?
Priyanka Chopra’s Tiger Print Dress
For those evenings when you’d like to make a polished statement, Priyanka Chopra has all the style inspiration you need. During the promotions run of The White Tiger, the star chose to play into its moniker by opting for a form-fitted white dress punctuated with tiger stripes. With classic gold hoops complementing the turtleneck, a classic number will have you ready to go in two ticks.
Deepika Padukone’s Neon Snakeskin Dress
Not a fan of all-over prints? Take your sartorial cues from Deepika Padukone instead, who added a pop of colour to a classic black dress. The tulle number featured a snakeskin bodice dipped in the statement-making hues of highlighter green, that the star chose to mirror with coordinated sunnies. Head turns guaranteed.
Janhvi Kapoor’s Leopard Print Bikini
Or maybe you are looking to ease yourself into the trend? Fret not, because Janhvi Kapoor knows exactly what you need. Opt for animal print bikini separates like her, and choose to mix and match your choices with pieces you already own. Case in point: the pair of leopard print bottoms that the young star matched with a white bikini top.
