8 animal prints every winter wardrobe is crying out for

The clocks have gone back an hour and the world seems to be dark all the time

But just because the weather's miserable all the time, doesn't mean your style has to be.

Why not treat your wardrobe to a vacation in the sun on a glamorous winter safari? Prints are an eternal trend, so allow us to help you create a truly timeless look.

Take a look at our 8 favourite animal prints from the AW17 season.

Blue Snake Embossed Block Heel Sandals – River Island - £45.00

I haven’t seen many blue snakes recently, but of all the faux prints I have seen, this is one of the most beautiful colour collabs. With a double ankle strap, block heel, and a low toe, you know these will be super easy to walk in.

You live in black shoes – the only colour that’ll work with those quirky ‘one-offs’ you never get the chance to wear.These will be the pair of shoes that you’ll be basing your outfit on.

A black skater dress never looked less basic. After all, you own too many block colours anyway.

Mint Green Animal Print Parka – New Look - £11.00

So you’ve bought your sweaters, a burgundy knit beanie and some dark denim that hides the marks from the sleet. The only area where you’ve been lazy is in outerwear, but wait - you're all spent out!

Well don't fear just yet, because, for a gal with only £11 left and a desperate need for a waterproof, New Look has you covered. Literally.

Zebra Print Coat – Topshop - £30.00

Be the buoy of hope in a sea of navy puffer coats.

Winter will see your wardrobe gradually darken. Some say it reflects the dread of looming exams. Others argue they just want the cars to see them against the snow(!?).

Whatever your reason is to dress head-to-toe in black, why not let this zebra print be your compromise?

If you’re into coordinating your outfit with your mood, let the share of white be the tiny bit of life left in your wardrobe. It’s that tiny bit of motivation you get when you remember you’re past your first term.

Adhria White Snake Print Bardot Thong Bodysuit – PrettyLittleThing - £6.00

Whether you’re after a bottom layer for your mesh tee or just a little extra insulation, bodysuits are one of the few essentials that look great on their own, regardless of what you pair them with.

This snake-print Bardot is perfect for a night in town, and whether you’re pairing it with a baby pink bodycon, or leather-look trousers, it’ll guarantee you a bite of the attention.

Light Before Dark Red Snakeskin Skirt – Urban Outfitters - £99.00

Statement pieces like these are all the accessory you’ll need. It’s so tempting to go overboard with jewellery. I constantly debate over whether it’s reasonable to wear two necklaces at once when I can’t decide.

Lucky for us, in pieces as wonderful as this, accessories aren’t an issue. Seriously, pair it with a vest and some sandals and people wouldn’t look away from it long enough to notice. Hopefully.

Striped Leopard Print Shirt – Zara - £25.99

Okay, so this takes the theme of ‘animal prints’ in a literal sense, but that doesn’t make it any less worthy to feature on this list.

Team with a bodycon midi skirt and a loose blazer for a look that screams business, while also showing you’re not afraid to walk on the wild side.

Well, to dip a toe into the wild side at least.

Zebra Print Short Skirt – H&M - £8.49

Our ancestors saw animal prints as a necessity, and hell, it looks like we still do.

Keep it basic and look great doing it.

Pair with block colours and a chunky heel for a look that is as carefree as your weekends.

Leopard Moto Jacket – Nasty Gal - £50.00

Fall in love with the ruched sleeves, asymmetric zip and the large collar you can pop when you reuse your awful (yet classic) Christmas jokes.

Add a punch (and scratch) to every outfit this season with this pawsitively purrfect (sorry) jacket.

Never has a leopard jacket looked so fierce yet so adorable.
