Animal prints, like camo patterns, seem to be a style that will never completely wither away. They might go away for a while, come back unnoticed in subtle touches here and there, but eventually, they always resurface in full (visual) force. If the question comes up among editors or younger crowds, it is often mentioned that the look is overdone and not so subtle, by times associated with a style proudly boasted by lower and higher peripheries of a socio-economic spectrum.

Yet, animal prints are back in full strength this season, making a bright, elegant, and occasionally youthful return. Reinterpreted and applied to visually break the consistency of outfits, define them, or simply to add an extra strong touch to bold looks, the iconic print is being embraced by a wide range of designers.
