A fluffy sweater is my best friend during the cold winter time. While most parts of Europe have yet to see snow, America’s Dairyland Wisconsin (where these pictures were taken) has been covered for months. I decided to pull out this fluffy zebra statement sweater and create an outfit with it using another animal design item. Click further to see how I combine animals prints without making the outfit look tacky!
Here I paired my zebra sweater with an owl necklace. You guys know that I love owls! Combining animals prints can easily cause an outfit to look tacky. The trick is to keep the prints or items in the same color and to not over do it. If I would have for example also worn owl earrings with this outfit it would have been a complete over kill. If you want to play it safe: don’t use more than two animal print pieces in one outfit.
In order to give the outfit a pop of color I wore my Timberland boots with it. I think they go really well with black even though they’re brownish. I wouldn’t wear chocolate brown shoes with this outfit, but rust of camel colored shoes are fine.
