Humans love animals! As evidenced by our numerous pets, our love of zoos, our thrill with wild animal parks, our fascination with fish aquariums and our infatuation with reptiles, we find animals to be wildly attractive.
Not only in our homes and in the animals’ natural habitat, but on our clothing as well. Animal prints in fashion style is big business!
Animal prints are clothing in which the garments are made to resemble the pattern of the skin and fur of an animal, such as a leopard, cheetah, zebra, tiger, hyena, giraffe, monkey and the snake. In addition to animal prints pawing up our clothing, the animal skin also leaves its distinctive mark on our handbags, shoes and jewelry.
We adore and fawn over our animals!
Animal prints have been a popular fashion style for many reasons. They are considered rather exotic, and in some countries, are viewed as a symbol of wealth and status. Animal prints became trendy for women in the United States in the late 1960s, during the Bohemian movement.
Today, to stop animal cruelty and unnecessary animal killings, the majority of animal print clothes and animal fur coats are made from fake, synthetic materials, created to look like authentic animal skins and coats were used.
Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! Why not give leopard, zebra and snake skin purses and shoes a try?
Take a walk on the wild side through this jungle called life and step it up a notch in sexy, animal magnetic footwear!
Fashion Fun Fact: Animal prints are not limited to just the animal’s skin or fur pattern, but may be any part of the animal and still be called an animal print!
