Would You Wear… Zebra Print?

If you’re looking for a fierce way to step up your winter fashion game, we recommend jumping on the zebra print bandwagon. This bold animal print is making a serious statement on runways right now. The best part? It’s neutral, so it pairs well with your go-to winter blacks and whites. 

Feeling wild? Seek out a zebra print dress or coat. Still on the fence? Earn extra style points the easy way with a zebra scarf that pops. Zig-zag zebra stripes complement bright colors, like fuchsia or cobalt. While this trend’s staying power remains to be seen, we shamelessly dig the style right now.

Sass up your stripes with (faux) leather details…

Will you be wearing zebra stripes this winter?

Or do you think they look a little tacky? Do you think zebra stripes can be practical in the workplace, perhaps under a blazer? How would you wear them? Let us know by leaving us a comment below!

    I’m on the fence about this one. I have a zebra print scarf that I love but I’m not sure about the print anywhere else. I think it can be hard to pull off but maybe that’s just me.

    I wouldn’t wear it. I hate all sorts of animal prints

    I absolutely love zebra print. Yes, please! (Although I guess I should also note that I consider leopard print a “neutral”.)

    I never thought of pairing zebra print with leather skirt! Love this look.

    I think I would really only be comfortable with zebra printed accessories. I’m not really a fan of animal prints, but I used to have zebra printed flats that I loved. A dress or top might feel like too much…

    sorry but not me. I have just barely tiptoed into leopard print lately and sometimes I think it’s even too tacky. Zebra is just out of hand.

    I think it works the way leopard and camoprints work. If you like graphic all over prints, this is a nice addition to your oeuvre.

    I wear my zebra print scarf all the time, however I probably wouldn’t wear a zebra print top or dress.
