Zebra Print - the New Leopard ?

By Marta @fashion_caramel
Looking at how celebrities and fashionistas are adopting zebra prints and the way big names have been inspired by this animal print I can't help but wonder if zebra will dethrone the king leopard...

On the runway names like Gucci, Giambattista Valli and Michael Kors, to name a few, preferred zebra to leopard this season which is at least a sign that something is happening.
Now celebrities and fashion bloggers are sporting more and more zebra prints which only confirms what was seen on the runway. A special mention for Nicole Richie wearing two trends in one sweater with her Proenza Schouler mint zebra sweater.

I am a leopard girl myself and I'm usually not unfaithful with other animal prints but I have to admit that the zebra print is pretty cool. I specially love the mix of black and white which is really easy to match with anything, just throw a bright colored item for the contrast or keep your outfit black and white. I'm loving these three outfits, what do you think ?

Only time will tell if zebra has the potential to replace leopard as the go-to animal print in fashion but in the meantime there is no harm to experiment with it. Here are some items for inspiration.

My favorite zebra print itemt is by far the C/E stiletto jeans. I already I have the gray leopard version of these jeans which I wear all the time. I almost bought the flowers version recently but I wasn't sure about them (too many flowers in my wardrobe lately), now I'm thinking that the reason why I wasn't sure is because I knew something better was coming up, I think this is fate...
How about you, will you be falling for zebra soon ?
Thanks for reading and have a great week !

Already own a pair of lepoard print stiletto's just like the Jimmy Choo one's but from Jaeger so the zebra print one's may also be heading my way too. x
