Everyone needs a little wild style in their lives, but there’s definitely a fine line between looking fabulously fierce and like a full-on street walker — the latter of which you want to avoid at all costs. To get that perfect balance of sexy meets dangerous like our girl Kim Kardashian, just check out these four fabulous ways to work the “Wild Thing” trend. We’ll teach you how to incorporate loud colors, bold textures and wild prints without taking it over the top.
Call of the Wild: Four Fierce Ways to Work the Trend
The first step to looking the part is making sure you know all the essentials that make up this trend.
MIX THINGS UP WITH LEATHER AND LEOPARD
Trust us, you don’t have to be a biker chick to pull off leather. So why not take a walk on the wild side and toughen up traditional animal print with a leather and leopard contrast panel jacket, $293, like this one from Asos? Simply style it with black skinny jeans and a classic button-down blouse for a look that’s ultra feminine but still very much on trend.
STAND OUT IN A FUN, FUNKY JUMPSUIT
Get the attention you know you deserve (and stay comfy cool all the while) in this rad, animal print silk-mousseline jumpsuit, $795, from Matthew Williamson. Light as a feather and marvelously luxurious, this piece looks stylish layered over a bold, bright bikini for summer — tropical, “born to be wild” fashion at its finest.
BRING SEXY BACK IN A BODY CON ZEBRA DRESS
Move over leopard, there’s a new animal print in town! Trade in your spots for a funky fresh pattern when you slip into this sultry, open back meta zebra dress from Camilla and Marc (Shopbop, $480). With lightly padded shoulders and a body con fit, we can just picture the Kardashian clan fighting over who gets to hit the red carpet in this little number first.
LOOK PRETTY IN PINK
Not quite ready to adorn yourself in the all leopard everything look just yet? No worries, you don’t have to. Ease yourself into the trend in a much more subdued way with these chic, towering pink suede pumps from Aldo ($80). Spotted on the inside only, these shoes would look wonderfully wild worn with a little black dress like this legacy leather one from GUESS by Marciano ($328).
