Animal Prints for the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s–Business version
Quote of the day: “Be an ambassador for the kind of world you want to live in.” Julie Andrews
Can you wear animal prints to work? I would say yes in most workplaces. Of course it all depends on the fit and style of your animal print item, but really that’s the case for any piece of clothing. The goal is to keep it subdued, covered up and low-key. This can be accomplished by adding a blazer or cardigan and work appropriate shoes. What do you think? See these same animal print items styled for the casual day here.
50’s Animal Print (Dress): For the business casual version of the leopard dress, I added a blazer and black pumps…it really can’t get more business appropriate than that. I had to add just a touch of color in the necklace.
60’s Animal Print (Shirt): The snakeskin shirt is perfect under most jackets! Even if you removed the jacket, I think it would work wonderfully.
70’s Animal Print (Sweater): You can layer a sweater cardigan over another sweater! The muted colors and white blouse make it office acceptable. I added a little color in the earrings for interest and almost wish I’d added a turquoise necklace.
