Designers from Victoria Beckham to Tom Ford to Michael Kors showed a safari’s worth of animal prints head-to-toe on the fall/winter 2018 runway, and leopard print played a starring role in the collections of Canadian labels Pink Tartan and Joeffer Caoc. This time around, stripes and spots are popping up in unexpected hues, and styled in OTT print-on-print combinations.
If you’re ready to try a bit of pattern play, but aren’t up for neon leggings or investing in a leopard print coat, why not snuggle up to a soft, huggable knit instead? Textured and featuring cool fits — most are either oversized or stylishly cropped — these fashionable cozies come in a veritable rainbow of colours and are a brilliant way to add seasonal pizzazz to your go-to basics. Try them layered with other coordinating patterns in your wardrobe (for inspo: print mix master Susie Bubble), but they also make a bold style statement all on their own.
