We had a BLAST this morning on GOOD MORNING TEXAS dishing on how to wear animal print! See our segment : CLICK HERE FOR THE SEGMENT
The question isn’t “Should you wear animal?” because the answer is undoubtly “YES!” The real question is how to wear it and make it work for YOU the best!
I have four simple rules when it comes to styling animal……
1. If it is a large print animal don’t match your look with the animal print. It looks dated if you do that. Try putting nice cool pastels like this EILEEN FISHER BLUE TANK paired back with these comfy WINTER WHITE 7 for all mankind jeggings making the big animal printed BURBERRY CAPE look updated and fresh! I love the added touch of our dear own Dallas darling Britt Harless new line BAHZ tree necklace. It is the icing on the cake for this look today!

2. TAME THE ANIMAL!!!!! Sometimes animal print can be extremely overwhelming or maybe you are just a more understated fashionista. So if that is the case, go for a more subtle animal print like this SNAKESKIN PRINT PALAZZO PANT and put it back with a soft pastel like this FUR TRIMMED PINK SWEATER and SILK BOW blouse by my favorite ALICE AND OLIVIA Finish the look off with these COLOR BLOCKED mary janes from SHOEDAZZLE and your look is ON ANOTHER LEVEL!

3. POP the animal with a VIBRANT COLOR! This is for all you daring fashionistas or accessories addicts! Find a bright vibrant color and pop the animal in the accessories like we did here with this AHHHHMMMMAAAAZZZZIIINNNGGG Stella McCartney animal clutch
and these animal print SHOEDAZZLE booties This pop of animal just literally reaches out and grabs you when you pair it with this chic PINK CAPE DRESS You will be kicking fashion booty and taking names, my friend!

4. Stay SINGLE with your animal print. It makes it look more expensive and special with just highlighting your animal print against a streamlined one color look. Like we did with this very hip DVF animal print hoodie.
For the more edgy fashionista this animal printed legging by Third Level Active is a great workout legging that transitions great from day to night. Just trade your sneakers for some boots and add a leather jacket and BAM! you are set for the night and look FABULOUS!
Just so you know this takes a village to get these segments together and we couldn’t do it without everyone coming together EARLY in the morning like our Hair and Makeup team of PAIGE ANDERSON and AMBER PRICE THANK YOU GUYS SOOOO MUCH!
And of course my partner in crime – ASHLI VONDARA who I would trust with my first born….she is PRICELESS!
Peace and LOVE
