Woylaa.com – If adults want to emulate animal inspired look on their dresses or clothing ensembles, they usually wear animal skin patterns like zebra, leopard, tiger or snake. Actually adding animal pictures on the clothes is considered tacky or childish. Well, not now! Fall fashion trends that grace New York Fashion Week this year show great use of actual animal figures, not just silhouettes or skin patterns, on various trendy and chic clothing items. Since fall fashion usually uses more fabric than summer or spring fashion, it gives wider canvases for designers to be creative with animal figures.
Whether it is on short dresses, sweaters or skirts, animal figures such as birds, cats and fish become huge for fall fashion trends this year. They surely will add cheerful element to somber season.
These fish and bird prints on designer sweater, dress and coat are definitely worth checking, but sometimes people hesitate to wear clothes with animal figures because they look childish. So, how to apply animal figures on your clothing items without looking tacky or childish? Here are some ideas worth considering.
Fall Fashion Trends: Minimalist Animal Prints
One good way to incorporate animal figures on your outfits without going tacky or childish is using minimalist style. Small animal silhouettes are hot current fashion that found its way to fall fashion trends this year. Animals with distinctive silhouettes like birds, dogs, cats, horses, butterflies or fish are favorites for animal patterns. Small, repeated patterns of animal figures emulate the classic style of animal skin prints, but with more distinction since the pattern used is the silhouette or figure. There are many ways you can make this works, but the most popular option is pairing dark silhouette with colors like pastel or beige.
