The thing we love about animal print….it is considered a neutral, and it’s a year-round staple.  That being said…we are sharing six fun ways to incorporate animal print accessories into your summer style.  

One way to give your summer look a fun vibe is with animal print hair accessories.  A row of 2 or 3 hair clips is so on-trend! Headbands are all the rage and perfect for poolside lounging or a lovely summer luncheon.  I’m smitten with a cheetah-print headband from Anthropology. And ASOS offers a beautiful selection of head scarves…perfect for long ponytails and short bobs.  

















It’s an “urban jungle” out there!  So for comfy city walking, a pair of Calico sneakers from Amazon Fashion will get you to and from work in style.  You can go all-out animal print with a pair of Tory Burch Miller leopard or snake print sandals….so cute paired with one of your neutral outfits.  And I love how Sam Edelman adds just a touch of leopard to a pair of black and brown sandals.

When it comes to summer jewelry, anything tortoise is the way to go.  My favs are tortoise earrings paired with a neutral outfit. Double loops from Tuckernuck’s summer collection are ideal for any summer soiree’. Anthropologie’s contrasting stone bracelet is perfect for summer and will easily transition into fall. How awesome is that?

One of my favorite accessories is a belt.  A recent online purchase I made from Forever 21 was a leopard print belt with a square wicker buckle.  I love wearing it with a black linen midi skirt and peasant top. Loeffler Randall’s scalloped edge belt in leopard will definitely take your preppy style for a walk on the wild side.  And be sure to look at all the belt options from Amazon Fashion on our Pinterest board.

A hat or cap is a necessity in the summer time.  Don’t you agree? If your fitness jam is walking outdoors, Amazon Fashion’s pink leopard print baseball cap is perfect for an early morning walk or a bad hair day.  And their seagrass hat tied with an animal print scarf gives an ultra-cool vibe. Need to stay in the shade? Loeffler Randall shares a trendy option with their bucket hat in leopard.  Keepn’ it cool!

Speaking of staying in the shade, what’s cooler than a pair of animal print sun-shades?  I’m pretty sure the answer is…nothing! We are loving Anthropologie’s awesome selection…everything from rounded to cat-eye rims.  J Crew keeps things fab with their selection of tortoise eyewear….perfect for the urban jungle!


It looks like we just “let the cat out of the bag”!  From hair accessories to sunshades….your summer never looked so cool.
