Don’t be too sexy
If you don’t usually feel comfortable wearing animal prints, you will feel self-conscious in a super-sexy animal print outfit. A tights or short skirt that can draw the wrong kind of attention even if you have spots or stripes if you know what I mean.

Don’t let anyone tell you that you are too young or too old to wear animal prints. Any woman of any age can pull off this style element with confidence. A fashionista with a youthful style can combine a lively animal print skirt with a moto jacket and sneakers, for example. Fashionistas who are feeling more sophisticated may prefer a zebra print blouse under a blazer with a mule. One of these outfits can be worn by anyone in their 20s or 70s.
At the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter how you wear a tiger, zebra, snake, leopard or cheetah print – unless you feel great about it.
