Jill Chivers of Shop Your Wardrobe and I discuss all aspects of animal prints in this video post.
I explain the contrast elements of animal prints, both value contrast and colour contrast.
Watch the video in this post if you want to know more about choosing prints and the contrast of prints (it’s the one we mention in this video).
I talk about the scale of animal prints (which of course can be applied to all prints, from florals to stripes!). This is something that is particularly important to consider if you are petite in height!
I explain how the overall value of the print will change how the value contrast of the print is expressed.
We show examples of warm and cool animal prints.
I explain how a sheer fabric will change the feel of the contrast (and can lower down the perceived value contrast).
Jill talks about how she treats leopard prints as a neutral and will often mix different leopard prints in the same time.
