Incorporating animal prints into your spring style

Animal prints are go-to design choices whether you're looking to wear elegant formal dresses. However, the proportions of these patterns are just as important as the look of the hues themselves, so you'll have to take liberties when incorporating them into your ensemble to pull them off.

Actress Allison Williams recently showed off her own take on the style at a recent appearance at New York's Ed Sullivan Theatre. In addition to her black and navy blue sheath dress, Williams gave her ensemble some serious pop by opting for snakeskin peep-toe pumps. Because the style was fairly neutral, it blended in with her outfit beautifully.

This is typically the secret when pulling off animal prints, as an overabundance of the same print can sometimes come off as tacky. The lone exception would be a reinvention of the animal print with varying hues. However, you should still tone this down a bit by wearing neutral accessories or footwear that can add a touch of contrast to your outfit.
