My Favorite Way to Wear Animal Print Lately

Y’all have probably noticed the HUGE animal print trend by now, right? I thought so. Because it’s so popular, it seems like you can get anything decked out in snakeskin or leopard print – even pants! But my favorite way to wear the trend is in my accessories (think shoes and handbags)! Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against a good leopard blouse here or there, but I’ve found that accessories are the least overwhelming, which I’m a fan of.

Below, I’ve rounded up lots of my favorites from Cole Haan because they’re the OG when it comes to shoes and bags!

First things first, these leopard shoes from Cole Haan! I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a more perfect leopard pump. They’re the ideal height so you can wear them to work, during the day to lunch or even out with the girls or for date night. They’re made of haircalf and lined with real leather so the quality is on point while the sole is made from Cole Haan’s GRANDFØAM traction so you won’t be slipping at all while wearing them throughout the winter months or in wet weather. I also have a major crush on this snakeskin pair. I mean, how good are they?! Or if you’re into more of a loafer, you have to check out these!

Shoes might be my favorite way to wear animal print so if you’ve been wanting to try it out but are kinda nervous about how loud it can feel, try it on your shoes first!


The other way I love to incorporate a little bit of animal print is through my handbags. This Cole Haan option is a no-brainer because it has the animal print detailing, but it’s also neutral in color so it can go with basically any outfit and it’s the perfect size. You can even use it for work because it can fit a tablet or a 13-inch laptop – or 15-inch in the biggest middle pocket. This round black snakeskin bag is also super cute and great for a smaller, crossbody style bag.
