animal print | the classic style series

if it’s thursday, then it’s time for my classic style series on Instagram. every week i put classic style to the test to show just how easy, effortless, and timeless the classics truly are. some pieces never go out of fashion: trench coats, pencil skirts, or anything with animal print. whether you dress them up or down, these timeless pieces are forever stylish. 

today, i chose an on-trend pleated midi skirt with a timeless animal print from J.Crew. the skirt goes from simple to standout in eye-catching snake print. a sweater is a wardrobe staple that works for the office or the weekend. this cotton-blend pullover is lightweight yet looks terrific paired with a skirt or blue jeans. this sweater feels sophisticated and work-ready. pair it with a skirt with a subtle pop of color and edgier print. this is how a tried-and-true silhouette stays fresh and modern. minimal jewelry adds instant polish and keeps this ootd feeling understated.

black sandals replace black pumps for a summery look. black pumps and black sandals belong in every closet. they go with everything.

the pleats lie flat at the waist. the length hits below the knee. but the snake print is what gives this skirt pizazz.

don’t be afraid to take a walk on the wild side. neutral accessories keep this outfit effortless yet of-the-moment. this classic handbag from Hanner Clarke Handbags has a timeless braided strap and is made from buttery soft italian leather. there are no exterior logos which provide a clean, classic look. the evelyn comes in seven colors. of course, i chose my signature color pink. this shade is soft and subtle and is my go-to summer bag. a classic handbag is your secret weapon that makes jeans and a tee more polished.

    Generally not an animal print fan but this snake print is catching my eye.

    Hi Beth, lovely outfit, I love animal prints myself and I love the colour of your skirt. The top you are wearing with it compliment it really well xoxo

      hi julie! i thought the color scheme of this skirt was what set it apart. and it will be a perfect transitional item that will head into fall with ease.

    That skirt and top look like they would span seasons, too–always a plus in my book. I hear you on time flying–I’m amazed that July is right around the corner. It doesn’t seem possible! So far, we have been so fortunate to have hot weather but drier than normal–not so much humidity, which has made it downright delightful. I imagine that will come to an abrupt end soon, but I’m relishing it for now. Love that bag, too!

      these are great transition pieces, sue! we’re enjoying the same sort of summer. but i know our luck is about to run out. humidity is good for our skin. right?!

    I have a similar skirt from Banana Republic only it’s longer. So far I’ve only been able to wear it once, summer is delayed here. It’s so easy to wear. Looks great on you.

    Love me some Brahmin, Coach, Dooney & Bourke bags, and a few others, but these are beyond pricey at $650 for the average working girl. Glad I worked till 72 to be able to afford what I wanted, not every one can.

      then i won’t tell you how much a gucci handbag costs. but handbags are investments that last a lifetime and many times can be handed down to our daughters. for some reason, our generation doesn’t look at handbags from that perspective. go figure.
