A Minimalist's Guide To Wearing Animal Print, According To Victoria Beckham


Animal prints aren't going away anytime soon, and Victoria Beckham's sock boots are proof that you can bring the one of this season's biggest trends into your look while maintaining a minimalist aesthetic. Known for her sleek, polished style, the British fashion designer has a knack for creating a subtle statement look and her latest ensemble is no exception. Furthermore, it acts as a guide for all those minimalists looking to bring a bit of leopard into their wardrobe this season.

For LIVE with Kelly and Ryan, Victoria Beckham wore the stretch-knit "Jasmine" boot from her eponymous line. Ringing in for $1,190, the leopard-print, thigh-high boot is a real showstopper with its leg-hugging silhouette, open-toe, and four-and-half inch stiletto heel. That said, VB kept the rest of her look clean and refined with a vibrant red midi-length dress from her collection, a pair of over-sized black sunglasses, and simple jewelry.

The key to nailing this look is to pair up a neutral animal print boot with a streamlined silhouette in a solid color, and while Victoria went for a bold hue, you can certainty opt for a more muted tone, too. The brown and tan color palette of a leopard-print boot (like Victoria's) makes it easy to match up with pretty much any color you throw at it — a likely reason for why this print has continued to be so popular the last couple of seasons.


If you tend to shy away from wearing animal print clothing, a boot provides for a way to bring the poppy print into an outfit in a smaller dose — even if it's as tall as the pair Victoria is wearing. After all, you can show as much or as little of the print as you want depending on the length of your hemline. And, by keeping the rest of your outfit pared down, you'll be able to stick to your minimal aesthetic.

So, are you ready to bring an animal print boot into your lineup? To help you get started, a group of swoon-worthy styles have been rounded up for you below, including the pair Victoria Beckham was spotted wearing in New York City.
