Zebra Print

Fashion folks often claim that animal print is a neutral. Leopard is not my thing, but this Dries Van Noten zebra print definitely is. Ages ago I had a pair of zebra print boots that made even the most minimalist ’90s outfits sing.

  • Well Dries can make absolutely any print look chic. You’re going to laugh but leopard print is my thing and I always thought zebra was too noisy for me. Love different points of view. This could change my mind about zebra.

  • Leopard is universally chic, I should give it another go.

  • Totally agree with SueM. Leopard print has always been my go-to pattern to wake up my closet full of black, brown, and camel, but zebra is a bit noisy for me (love that description, Sue!). However, I’ve seen the Dries coat IRL and it is something to behold – just the perfect statement print.

  • I think the skirt is the piece with the most longevity and styling options. I also prefer animal prints away from the face. BTW – Ann Mashburn has the cowboy boots in the best tiger pattern!

  • Also fully obsessed with this set, Preston. I love the light fabric as well, given our rise in temperatures.

  • I love animal print of any kind. A favorite fall dress is a little ‘silk’ shirt dress that is just right with a favorite shoe – JC block heel suede and patent sling backs and classic black Chanel bag. It comes out in September and, although several years old, always gets a nice compliment. I would wear the skirt above in a second! Adding a black turtleneck, and, ideally, boots. Kinda Mod Squad? The great thing about animal print is you don’t age out of it like you might a super feminine floral print.
