The undeniable trend du jour is Animal Print, be it leopard, snake, zebra or tiger…just pick a print & go wild!
Considered the new neutral of 2019, a wave of spots & stripes have arrived in store, alongside cool khakis & sophisticated creams.
The combinations here are endless: wear your snakeskin suit to make a bold statement, or as separates for a pared back look. Pair your favourite printed piece against white or black to make it POP. If you’re just working your way into the trend, start with a printed belt, clutch or scarf, then graduate to a zebra print skirt!!!
It’s Jungle Fever!
There’s nothing quite like pairing your wide legged linen pants with a printed silk blouse. It’s a sure bet & always turns head. Here, we have broken up the look with an embellished brown belt and khaki pumps.
Who isn’t loving leopard print this season? This crowd favourite has been given a modern update with a gold banded sleeve and collar. Not to be overlooked are these drill cotton khaki pants – a slim line fit that’s cool to wear and easy to match. Yes, please!
Sometimes simple is best – especially if that means a super sweet black shift with a splash of print. A classic boat neckline and 3/4 sleeve add a touch of class to this transeasonal piece.
For those summer showers, you can’t go past this statement rain jacket. The nickel hardware, red piping and meshed lining allow you to wear this jacket even on a dry day – just pair with some relaxed jeans or your favourite athleisure leggings for an off-duty look.
OH MY GOODNESS! A snakeskin suit has landed at The LBD Shop and it is making a bold first impression…Of course, you can split this wonderful Jacket / Pant combo (see below), but if you’re seriously feeling like walking on the wild side, you can’t go past this suit. Add some pearls and pumps to soften your look and take you from day to night.
No need to read between the lines here – black is crossing over with white and it’s marvellous. A monochromatic ensemble always exudes confidence & sophistication. This tailored blouse also looks incredible worn outside of the skirt & pinched at the waist with black belt.
It’s hard to know what to focus on here…is it those snakeskin pants, the straw clutch with it’s bamboo clasp or the silk blouse. The black blouse can be worn two ways as well, just when you thought this look couldn’t get more exciting! Wear open and have the ruffle drape down softly, or thread it through at the neck for a thin scarf effect.
For that effortless & relaxed effect, opt for a blouson blouse and printed pants. The exposed stitching and raw shoulder detail on this top ensure it is a cut above the rest. There’s no reason why you can’t wear it with some black jeans and killer heels in the evening either – that’s the beauty of a simple top.
All black everything allows our Jacket du Jour to really POP here. By wearing a slim, straight leg jean, you balance out the fitted tailoring on the jacket. P.S. have you seen our new sling-backs yet? Straight from Paris, they’ve arrived in a beautiful grosgrain fabric, complete with a bow on top!
Recognise this material? To be worn with our khaki drill cotton pants for a safari-inspired ensemble, or else dress it up with the likes of these ivory trousers. A bit of gold bling will really elevate your look and a khaki pump!
If all that print is overwhelming and you need to take smaller steps, why not opt for a splash of cheetah on your belt or clutch? You can easily accessorise your wardrobe favourites and transform them into on-trend outfits!
