Dare to incorporate animal print shoes into your everyday attire by subtly integrating them into your office wardrobe. Leopard-print ballerinas paired with a pencil skirt or zebra ankle boots with high-waisted trousers instantly elevate your business look with a touch of style. These patterns can also shine at a party, giving a unique twist to a more understated outfit.

If you choose patterned shoes, the key to a successful look is the balance of colours. Combine your shoes with an outfit in neutral colours such as black, white or beige. Whether it's a simple long dress, well-fitting jeans or cotton chino - the combination of animal print and simple colours is a perfect balance and harmonious contrast.

Don't be afraid to explore the bold trend of mix & match prints, because in 2024, visual chaos is not only accepted but also celebrated on the catwalks. But how do you find the ideal combination of different patterns? Once again, balance plays an important role: combine the extravagance of zebra or leopard prints with the simplicity of symmetrical stripes or dots.

Just bear in mind the importance of tonal consistency in maintaining a balanced look: within the same colour palette, make sure the shades of your outfit complement each other.
