The Classic Trend You'll Wear Today, Next Season, and 5 Years From Now

An "evergreen trend" sounds like an oxymoron if we've ever heard one, but I'm just going to go ahead and say it: Animal print is the one trend that will outlast all the others. Whether it's my grandma's leopard-print coat or the number of snakeskin printed items I've seen all over Instagram lately, I'm convinced that animal prints of all kinda are the trend that will never die.

For spring 2020, we're seeing abstract versions of leopard and zebra, while the styling is all about mixing the prints with neutral tones and loads of tailoring. One look at the street style scene from fashion month confirms this.

To show you that animal print is still relevant among the fashion crowd this spring, we've sourced our favorite recent examples along with shopping from our very own Who What Wear collection, because, yes, when we spot a trend, we love to put our own (rather affordable) spin on it. From spring-ready dresses to statement tops to pants, we designed everything you could possibly need to make the look yours without going a penny over budget, so just keep scrolling to get started.

Tiered dresses are one of our favorite silhouettes this spring, and our Leopard Print Babydoll Dress as seen here is a fun way to get in on the look.

Rust is having a moment right now, and wearing it with black and white (what some might call a fashion "mistake") actually feels really fresh.

Another spring trend we love is vests. Although they can be intimidating to try out, we suggest emulating this look with both our Animal Print Puff Sleeve Blouse and Pleat Front Straight Cropped Trousers.

Lean into "grandma dressing" this spring—especially because animal prints are the one trend that has withstood generations upon generations of fashion girls.
