This season, animal prints are once again ruling the fashion circuit although, let’s be honest, they’ve since moved a step up the holy fashion grail and become a timeless classic rather than fashion trend.
Nevertheless, fashionistas continue to up their sartorial skills with go-to animal print, particularly when it comes to footwear. From leopard to Dalmatian to animal inspired applique, these wonderfully wild prints are adorning summer shoes from classic ballet pumps and ballerina flats to comfy loafers, light weight espadrilles and smart fold up shoes. Take a look at our edit below and our round up of the styles that we’re crushing on!
Uber Cool Leopard Print
Cocorose London’s classic Harrow ballerinas make for the ultimate ballet pump. With a pony hair (cow) leather upper and almond shaped toe capped in patent black leather, these ballet flats are insanely comfortable due to their double cushioned insoles, padded Achilles heels and concealed wedge heel.
The Clapham flats in leopard print pony hair (cow) leather adopt a more loafer style silhouette, with a longer vamp and more pointed toe. One of Cocorose’s best-selling styles, these comfortable loafers can be dressed up for meetings or dressed down with jeans and a T for a cosy Sunday pub lunch.
The Carnaby loafers, part of Cocorose’s portable Travel collection of fold up shoes, are ideal for commuting or travelling. Folding into a matching leopard print travel purse, these smart foldable shoes take up little to no space and offer incredible comfort, style and function for busy, modern women on-the-go.
Chic Dalmatian Print
Dalmatian print’s fashionable monochrome palette crosses Cocorose’s SS18 collection of ballerinas, slip-ons and loafers. One of Cocorose’s best-selling styles, the Buckingham ballet flat has been updated this season, fusing a classic ballerina silhouette with an on-trend pop of fuchsia.
Keeping in line with comfort and style on-the-go, these casually chic and sleek Shoreditch slip-ons with white soles are ideal for busy, metropolitan women. With a hint of sports luxe appeal, these slip-ons work their way up the athleisure trend scale by marrying on-trend animal print with a laid back, urban edge, making them ideal for running errands around town.
The Clapham loafers in luxurious, silky soft Dalmatian print pony hair (cow) leather is on the cards for being this season’s ultimate, sell out style. The contemporary feel of the loafer shape coupled with the cool splash of animal print ensures these flats would work well with this season’s new denims and fine knits.
Although not quite an animal print, these flamboyant peacock espadrilles are not to be missed. With mismatch still a big fashion trend, these flirty peacocks will most definitely show off your best colours.
