(SPOT.ph) Though it was once banished to the tackiest corners of the fashion orbit, the animal-print trend has returned and it’s back with a vengeance. We’d tell you to whip out your old pieces, but we know you probably got rid of those a while back. Don’t worry, the resurgence of wildlife-inspired patterns comes with some fun twists—you’ll be seeing some unique patterns, unconventional colors, and fresh styles. We rounded up some cool ways for you to rock the trend and show off your wild side.
Here are 10 pieces to help you incorporate animal print into your look:
Bucket Bag (P1,190) from H&M
Textured faux leather is a closet staple and should count as an entry point into #adulting. Try this cool snakeskin-patterned bag from H&M, which you’d be surprised to find goes with any look. Its spacious design is great for running errands around the city while still looking polished.

Black Animal Print Layered Top (P3,049) from Wallis
We like to think of this top from Wallis as a mullet blouse—business in the front, party in the back. You can take it from work to a fancy party, no problem. From the front, you’ll get a mostly black exterior with some low-key animal print details on the hem and sleeves, but once you turn around, you’ll show off much more of that feral pattern.
Sequin Animal Print Mini Dress (P1,690) from Chase Fashion
Go all-out and show off your frisky side in this sexy sequin dress from Chase Fashion, which has a reptile-inspired pattern in a fun peach color. Wear it to a hot date or on your next girls night out.
Ultra High-Waisted Tights (P1,599) from Cotton On
We usually think of animal print as a pretty dressy fashion option, but it can be casual and even sporty, too. These tights from Cotton On have just a few inches of leopard pattern at the bottom so you can rock the trend at the gym or in your comfy athleisure looks.

Animal Print Mix Headband (P495) from Pull&Bear
Why wear just one animal pattern when you can wear them all? Go wild with this quirky mixed-pattern headband from Pull&Bear. You can bring it to the beach or use it as a finishing touch to any casual outfit.

Leopard Print Earrings (P595) from Stradivarius
If you’re not ready to rock animal print on your clothes just yet, why not try some jewelry? These leopard-print earrings from Stradivarius might be a good place to start. They’ll draw more attention to your face (and your flawless makeup look, of course).

Leo One-Piece Swimsuit (P2,195) from Neon Island
Try this cool printed one-piece swimsuit from Neon Island’s Wild Things Collection for an animal-print look at the beach. It’s got a cool straight-across neckline that’ll flatter all body types and bust sizes. We love the muted cinnamon shade and brick-toned details on the pattern!
Available online or at Common Thread in Greenbelt 5 and Power Plant Mall, Makati City.
Animal Print High Heel Sandals (P2,595) from Zara
Wear these five-inch block-heel sandals from Zara for your next big event.

Faux Snakeskin Jacket (P2,995) from Bershka
Take this thigh-length trench from Bershka with you to your next cold weather destination or use it to dress up your work attire or even your streetwear. Either way, the snakeskin pattern and green-and-yellow color scheme are sure to turn heads—not for the faint of heart, but totally a must-have if you ask us.
