Trend Alert Spring/Summer 2020: Animal and Leopard Print

Some trends come and go, but animal and reptile prints are classic choices that never go out of style.  This year, however, they are taking the world by storm!  You can find animal and reptile prints in every category.  Sandals, pumps, loafers, flats, matter what you’re in the mood for, there is an animal or reptile print to love! And we promise—these animals will not bite! ;) 


This animal print pump from Donald Pliner and reptile print loafer from All Black are classics that will always look stylish and are seasonless—wear them year-round! 

Animal Print 

Whether it’s leopard, cheetah, giraffe or zebra, this bold choice can be surprisingly versatile in your closet.  With a color palate encompassing black, brown, tan and white an animal print is often very neutral. The only rule—don't overdo it!  Pick one animal print piece, rather than trying to camouflage yourself from head to toe.   And don’t endangered animals were harmed in the making of these prints.  They use the same leather as they do for shoes but they leave the animal hair intact and dye it a particular animal print. See our animal print selection here!

Reptile Print

Reptile print is similar to animal print—and yes we know that reptiles are animals 😉 The white, black and sometimes brown tones of a reptile print offer lots of versatility in your closet. Reptile print shoes go particularly well with solid jewel tone clothes—like a red jumpsuit.  But reptile print isn’t just monotone, it can also be colorful!  We’re in love with the new multicolor reptile prints.  Just pull out one color from the print to pair with your outfit and you’ll look polished and perfect!  And just like cheetahs and leopards skins aren’t used to make the animal prints, our shoes are not made of real reptiles.  Leather is printed and dyed giving it a reptile texture and coloration.
