How To Wear Animal Prints Now And Later


A simple wardrobe trick to live by: switch to classic colors and patterns before a new season begins, in order to make a seamless transition from one mood to the next. Case in point: this bold yet classic giraffe print from Rachel’s spring 2014 collection looks stunning with luxe black layers now, and super-cool with lighter nudes, golds and denim pieces for the spring season. Click through to see (and shop!) each giraffe-print piece in the new range, styled for both seasons.
