How to rock zebra print - outfit ideas

This post will show you how to wear the zebra print fashion trend like a fashion girl.

In case you didn’t get the memo about animal prints (aka the resurgence in cow print and leopard print), the trend is still going strong! This time around, the print to watch this fall is the zebra print fashion trend.

Zebra print? It seems like an unlikely choice to wear, but really it’s a black-and-white, versatile print that can jazz up any outfit you already have. It’s a trend worth investing in since it can be paired with so many items you already have in your wardrobe.

To introduce you to the print, here are my tips on how to rock this essential in your everyday looks. I’ll even send you on your way with some style and outfit inspiration for fun looks to try with zebra print pieces. Read on! 

How to Wear the Zebra Print Trend

Arguably, this print is even easier to style than leopard print because it comes in a basic black-and-white that will match well with any outfit. Whether you’re wearing formal or casual looks, zebra is a print that can be dressed up or down easily depending on how you style it.

If you’re just getting started with a new print, we suggest trying out funky accessories like shoes, outerwear, fun socks, belts, scarves, or jewelry in a zebra pattern so you’re used to wearing it without becoming too bold with your outfits.

But if you prefer to stand out, zebra print can accomplish that just as easily! By getting a statement shirt, dress, skirt, or pants, you can stay eye-catching and unique with your choice in print.

Even formal or business looks don’t have to be drab. By pairing a more upbeat zebra print accessory or piece of clothing with structured, classic pieces, you can achieve a timeless and work-appropriate look. What’s better than stunning your coworkers with your killer business casual style?

Whether you plan on making zebra print the accent to your look or you plan or pairing it with another patterned piece or graphic tee, there’s no wrong way to do it! This print encapsulates the effortless-yet-stylish look we all hope to achieve.

Another fun way to spice up the zebra print look is by changing up the colors. Look for zebra print clothing in a bold bubble gum pink, or a muted brown for an unexpected touch.

Color is a great way to catch the eye, and by combining it with a stylish print you’ll look like you put much more effort into getting dressed than you actually did!
