• Latest Update: March 2016

    In Milan and Paris, several micro trends were so pronounced that it seemed as though someone had sent a memo around: Wear leopard print, velvet and pink! Leopard print appeared in dozens of collections in coats, bags, and shoes,” according to The Wall Street Journal which covered the designer shows for fashion for 2016.

    You’ll be surprised at how much animal patterns update your existing outfits over 50. They introduce a look of current fashion. Don’t worry about this being a short fad. This look has been going on for years and is still on the new runways.

    Animal print pattern fashions are available at a broad range of price points. They’re a good buy because you can look quite fashionable by just using accessory pieces. They’re versatile and workable with much of your existing wardrobe. Here’s how.

    Tips for Coordinating Outfits

    1. Keep in mind that the completed outfits for fashion after 50 should be simple, elegant and sleek rather than too flashy or trendy.

    2. One patterned piece per outfit please. Because they’re so eye-catching, more than animal print can be overwhelming.

    3. Neutral tones in animal print patterns (more similar to the real beasts) are easiest to mix with other pieces in your wardrobe after 50.

    4. An accessory piece is the easiest and safest addition to make. That new accessory will make the whole outfit new again.

    5. Don’t mix them with other vivid patterns after 50.

    6. A matte surface, either textured or smooth, is richer looking. Shiny can look too flashy.

    Some easy-to-wear ideas for animal print fashions after 50:

    7. Add an animal print belt on a solid color outfit.
