How to Style Animal Prints Like Olivia Palermo Does

We can always count on Olivia Palermo for fresh, sophisticated takes on the latest trends. She’s our go-to inspiration whenever we’re struggling with how to style a new statement item. That’s why when she stepped out this week in a zebra-print skirt, we stopped to take notes on her somewhat out-of-character choice.

Wearing animal prints is notoriously difficult, but Palermo made it look so easy. By pairing hers with a floaty lace-detailed shirt and ladylike ballet flats, the style setter took the edge off the bold print and replaced it with a more sophisticated vibe. This is the key to making a look like this work—all the other pieces should be pared back so the print can shine. Now that we’ve seen how it’s done, we can’t wait to try out a similar ensemble for ourselves.
