Trendspotting: Whole Animal Prints on Shoes – But Which Animal?

Like on Pixie Lott’s Miu Miu satin cat print Mary Janes, we’re slowly starting to see more and more of whole animal prints on clothing, shoes, and accessories. It’s a lighthearted, quirky trend that’s really fun to wear this summer but the question is, which animal should we “wear”?

No one’s actually decided on one yet. Perhaps it’s best that the fickle-minded fashion industry never settles on just one animal because that way, we get a lot more choices. Also, showing your wild side doesn’t have to be limited to leopards or lions and neither does wearing animal print always have to be sexy, sensual or seductive.

Just take these other animal print shoes from Miu Miu. Pixie Lott wore her Miu Mius to complement her offbeat style and these just-as-wacky sparrow print ballet flats and the non-platform version of her shoes would fit right in into her wardrobe:

Like what Michael Kors said on Project Runway, “Lighten up, it’s just fashion!”. Here are 6 more fun animal shoes that show that you don’t always have to take fashion so seriously:

6 fun animal shoes

  1. Draven Cat Flat, $33.00
  2. Sugar Princess Grace Pumps, $79.95
  3. Converse Chuck Taylor Animal Ox Sneakers, $49.99
  4. Jessica Simpson Mocca Moccasins, $61.95
  5. Irregular Choice Birdie 3117 1 Flats, $34.95
  6. Marc by Marc Jacobs Mouse Ballerinas, € 215.00

Very cute eh? The mouse ballerina flats would be fun to wear and I’d probably get a lot of mileage out of the brown moccasins with the beaded eagle.

To wrap up this animal print post, I’d like to leave you with this shoe porn picture that I like to imagine was taken backstage at the Miu Miu fashion show:
