Whenever someone mentions wardrobe staples I instantly think of black, white t-shirts and jeans. However in todays world with the main fashion rule being to break all rules, the wardrobe staple has also evolved.
Animal print is one classic example of when a trend becomes a wardrobe staple. For many seasons it has gone in and out of the trend charts. Moving further to the top of the trend charts in recent years. This Autumn however animal print has gone one step further. Off the trend chart and right into the new wardrobe staple chart.
Animal print teamed with tartan being HOT on the fashionista trend list.
The good news for anyone that’s not such a fan of animal print – after all it is a trend that polarises – is that your own piece doesn’t have to be clothing it can also simply be a pair of shoes, a bag or some other accessory.
