Animal prints have been around since the 18th century when Europeans brought home the skins of leopards, tigers, zebras and snakes they found in Asia and Africa. The wealthy began having these exotic patterns reproduced in fabrics for use in clothing and décor. Two centuries later, these prints still have “animal magnetism.” Year after year, they’re back on the runways! But they’re not just for high fashion. They’re in the malls and the big box stores in tops, jackets, jeans, lingerie, handbags and even shoes.
Most animal prints are like neutrals – made of browns, beige, and black so they’re season-less and can be worn with almost anything. And they add a little edge to the plainest or most simple outfit.
Just like so many other fashion trends are being seen in medical scrubs, so are animal prints. Some are more traditional like a simple zebra print while others are in brighter, bolder colors or may be more pastel and used as a background to emphasize a bold focal image.
