Thursday Three: Animal Print Edition (10.25.12)


I love animal prints. And when I say animal print, I don't mean leopard spots or tiger stripes or anything like that at all. (My sister has always loved that sort of thing; I could never get into it.) No, friends, I mean prints that have an actual animal on them. There's an element of kitsch to them that I just adore. So here's my roundup of my favorite animal-print sweaters! Without further ado:


Everything about this sweater is perfect: the cut, the color, and yes, those sweet little puppy paw prints. I would have worn this to death in my dog-crazy stage when I was 8. Oh, who am I kidding - I'm still dog crazy. And I would still wear this to death today.


I have adored this sweater ever since it first came out in gray ages ago. There's just something about the absurdity of a bunny wearing glasses juxtaposed with the seriousness of said bunny's expression, I suppose. This is the type of statement piece that I would completely build outfits around. It's too perfect! Now that it has come out in the loveliest shade of green...well, I'm not sure I'll be able to resist much longer. And speaking of not being able to resist:


I am happy to say that this sweater is on its way to my closet! Lily of Love Charles Vintage alerted me last week to the fact that Rachel was selling this in her shop, Fawn on a Lawn, and...well, do I need to explain?

Okay, kitschy-animal-print-clothing aficionados...am I missing any gems? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Yes! I love the animal prints too - but I also love the leopard and stripes versions haha. Pretty much all of the above. I am particularly in love with the green bunny face cardigan. That color is so perfect and I'm sure it would look gorgeous on you. It's hard to resist a bunny with glasses too.

  3. I feel the exact same way about animal print! I like the little bit tacky, animal lover kind of look it gives rather than Jersey Shore-esque. That fox sweater is so amazing.
