With New York Fashion Week just ending and Spring right around the corner, fashion is hitting an amazing peak! Two of our favorite 2019 trends the SKOVA team will be incorporating this year are animal prints and vacation vibes!
Animal prints are making a welcomed comeback this year and it is incredibly easy to incorporate these textiles into your everyday wardrobe! Whether it's your leopard print travel towel you take to the pool or a sweet headband. There are a multitude of animal print textiles that will keep you looking chic and fashionable all year round.
1. Know your prints
Cowhide, snakeskin, crocodile, zebra, and our personal favorite, leopard, are all trendy this year! You can incorporate these prints in your everyday style by snagging a silk, spaghetti strap, tank; then pair it with high waisted jeans and some booties for a more relaxed feel. If you are going out with your girls, wear a micro dress showcasing your favorite animal print!!
Expert Tip: If it's still cold where you live throw on some sheer tights and layer a tight long sleeve shirt under your dress. This will ensure that you don't loose any shape and movement that your dress offers and will keep you warm all while looking stylish!
Vegan? Don't worry! You can still rock these prints without having to wear real animal products. Most company's do not use real animal skin for their textiles and if they do, it is noted on the clothing tag! If you are unsure, you can always check online if a specific brand is cruelty free and vegan.
If your style is a more muted or if you are nervous to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe... fear not! There is a multitude of cute accessories that incorporate animal prints that are small and subtle. One of our favorite ways to style animal printed accessories is with silk hair scarves! Hair scarves have become increasingly popular and they are a quick, easy way to spice up any hairstyle!
3. Bags and Beachwear
Fashion houses all over the world are releasing handbags and chic backpacks with animal prints on them. Elevate even the simplest outfits with your favorite animal print to keep your wardrobe looking chic and unique all year round.
Our last and personal favorite way to incorporate animal prints this spring and summer is on the beach! Lounge all your worries away with our new Imani travel towel . This towel features a gorgeous cheetah print, bordered with black trim and a bold, red floral design! This towel will keep you warm and dry, while keeping you fashionable and stylish wherever you are!
The second trend we are all about is, vacation vibes! This new trend is super exciting for all of us here at SKOVA! Vacation aesthetic is inspired by jet-setting fashionistas all around the world.
This trend is all about wrap skirts, boxy patterned button-ups (like the ones your uncle might wear to a family BBQ), Bermuda shorts, and macrame bags! You can incorporate this trend by visiting your favorite thrift store. Look around for a sustainably sourced silk button up, worn with a bralette peeking out, throw on some above the knee shorts and stack some necklaces for an effortlessly put together look and vibe.
Another great way to rock this vacation trend is with our SKOVA travel towel and beach blanket resort collection towels. These square and round towels with beautiful preinted designs are small enough to throw into your bag and take along with you on your day. They are extremely soft, all with gorgeous patterns that will draw everyone's eye to you! Traveling is the heart and soul of Skova.
