From leopard bombers to tiger shirts, we look at the best animal prints on the market

10 animal prints that won’t make you look like a '70s porn star

Don’t get us wrong, seventies porn actors have a strong look, but it’s hard to make friends with vast amounts of chest hair and an oversized gold medallion.

There is one thing these retro Lotharios got right though: animal prints.

Here are a few key styles to introduce you to this statement trend...

ASOS

A part of their Reclaimed range, where vintage pieces get restored to their former glory. This slightly oversized animal print shirt would definitely be in its natural habitat at a festival.

£38


Noose & Monkey

If you like leopard print but think it might be a bit too Rod Stewart for you, then opt for a less traditional monochrome style that you can work into your everyday outfits.

£40


Underground

The brand has provided footwear for some of punk's biggest icons, but in 2016 (and 35th birthday) they've turned to a new rebellious subculture - grime. We'd prefer to see Skepta shutdown a gig in these rather than some Yeezys any day.

£135


Gucci

The Far East seems to be a recurring theme in shirting this season, with Gucci using a dramatic tiger print all over a revere collar shirt in a lightweight fabric.

£395


Religion

Bomber jackets were in need of an update, as a lot of brands have been pushing them to the brink of their worth over the past few years, so this leopard style is a welcome change of pace.

£70


adidas

The iconic sports brand steps away from its technical sports aesthetic with a trend forward transformation of its most popular shoe, the Stan Smith.

£55


River Island

Inspired by the current trend for Japanese souvenir jackets, this short sleeve summer shirt looks to the Far East with its use of koi carp and florals.

£25


Lanvin

Another high fashion brand’s take on the leopard print shirt, again steering away from the classic style by turning it into an intense red.

£369


House of Hounds

These could not get more rock ‘n’ roll even if they were full to the brim with the stumped out cigarette ends of Keith Richards.

£95


Neil Barrett

A white and black cotton blend graphic leopard print blazer that’s currently in sale. If you’re already thinking about Christmas party wear (don’t worry, we are too) then this is a great investment.

£762
