Take a walk on the wild side

By Yemisi Suleiman

Whether printed on a ballet flat or splashed all over an over-sized handbag, animal prints make a bold statement every time. Adding an animal print scarf to your wardrobe could turn a drab outfit into something elegant or sporty. Animal print comes in all kind of accessories. You can buy everything from hats, belts, shoes and even a silk tie for the guys. A simple animal scarf is so versatile, it can work wonders with an otherwise ordinary wardrobe. When you wear animal prints, you remind the world about the precious animals we have in the wild and delicate balance of nature.

Go through the closet and hold the animal print scarf up against different colours. Notice the effect it has on different items of clothing. Take a pair of jeans and a yellow tank top, tie the animal print scarf loosely around the neck. See the transformation. You could also wear your scarf around your neck, pull to the side and secure with a broach to add elegance to a simple black dress.

Add an animal print bracelet and earrings to complete the look. You can also go with animal print shoes and handbag. But remember not to overdo it. If you go with the shoes and handbag, then use plain gold bracelet and earrings. If you go with the bracelet and earrings, complete the look with non-animal print shoes and handbag. And, look in the mirror and see what looks good!
