During the I.N.C. show on Saturday, one of the models was wearing the same leopard-print sweater I had on, and I said something to the audience along the lines of, “If animal prints make you nervous, remember: you can never go wrong if you just stick to one animal-print piece per outfit.” And Camila looked at me and said, “When you showed up this morning, I think you were wearing three.”
But while I understand that the rule is probably a good one, generally speaking – as it prevents you from looking like you dressed up in costume as a cheetah – it’s clearly not one I really follow. When it comes to animal prints, I’m of the “more is more is more” school of thought. I mean, sure: it probably should look deliberate as opposed to like you actually just have a closet at home with six thousand animal-print pieces in it and didn’t have any alternative (ahem), but other than that: do it up.
