Leopard print may have become a go-to neutral for the fashion set, but this season, there’s a new print popping up everywhere. Make way for zebra. The monochrome print is surprisingly easy to wear. Here’s how…

On first look, zebra print might seem like a no-no compared to it’s much more overused leopard, but really it’s just black and white making it really easy to wear. And just like leopard, it comes in multiple guises, from sexy and slinky slip dresses that nod to the ’90s to rock chic oversized shirts. It can even look a little twee when worked into a cosy knit.

Still unsure? Scroll on for three failsafe looks incorporating the print, plus our other favourites below…

Look 1: Head-To-Toe

You can always trust Zara if you’re after a statement-making printed suit. We love this fluid, slinky version in black and beige – the off-white hue gives the zebra print a cooler edge. Wear in the evening with just a peep of lace bra but keep things downplayed with a pair of flat loafers.

Look 2: Form-Fitting & Paired With Vinyl Pants

Commando’s slinky, form-fitting body is giving us all the ’90s vibes. Toughen it up with a pair of vinyl pants – we love Rotate’s stretchy June style as they have a bit of give but the high street have plenty of cheaper options too. A white tux-style jacket and a slick of berry red lip will pull the whole look together and make it a little more polished.


Look 3: Chunky Knits & Off-Duty Denim

How good is this Zimmermann zebra knit. It could look a little drab and twee but the oversized, puff shoulder gives it a more fashion edge. Pair with washed out denim, white sunnies and silver hoops for a chic but warm weekend vibe. And finish off with New Balance’s latest colour way of their popular 327s – hint of zebra print included.
