What you think of animal prints in fashion, what do you think of? We’ll give you a minute. Got it?

Animal prints, from simulated zebra print to leopard to snakeskin, can be hard to wear in ensemble format. The usual sartorial suspects come to mind, from leopard print tops to sassy snake-printed pants. If you’re after something a little less ‘loud’ then Aldo’s latest fall collection, Safari, will satisfy your appetite.

The collection has artfully combined slithers of animal print with pops of colour (we’re looking at you Wicildia) to create shoes that are on trend, stylish and subtle when it comes to the boldness that animal print delivers. That being said, Aldo have also catered for the brave and designed sneakers, court shoes and ankle boots that are entirely animal print. To style these, wear muted colours and let the shoes do all the talking (and walking) for you.
Go with an all-neutral ensemble and slip on the leopard printed stilettos as a statement footwear, or match the strappy stilettos to any outfit if you are just dipping your toes into the animal kingdom.

If you’re feeling extra brave and adventurous, why not complete your domination of the trend with their printed bags as well? Keeping the animal print to just your accessories is an easy way to uplift your look without scaring so easily. We say, go wild with this trend.

Aldo’s Safari series is now available in stores.
