Crocodile Rock: Styling Unconventional Animal Print

I’ve always been a sucker for traditional animal prints like leopard and cheetah, but recently I’ve been drawn to less common animal prints, as well. Snakeskin, crocodile- basically everything is fair game for my closet. While leopard is fairly classic and easy to style, I’ve found it’s a little harder to put together a look that incorporates an untraditional print.

When styling something like crocodile print, I’ve found that it works best to lean into the edginess it inherently possess. Mom jeans aren’t the move here- a fitted skirt is my go-to and what I have found works best. High-waisted shorts (not too baggy!) could be a viable option, as well. I love this light-wash skirt from Target because it provides a nice color contrast to the black shirt. My Adidas sneakers help tie some black back into the bottom of my outfit, rounding everything out.

I’ve already purchased snakeskin and crocodile-print shirts- is there anything else I should consider adding to my wardrobe? I never met an animal print I didn’t love, so I’m open to any and all suggestions!



This #OOTD is actually from a few days ago, but I never got around to posting it with all the Third Degree craziness!

I definitely didn’t need a belt to keep these denim shorts up, but I think that it adds such a cute touch anyways. I’m obsessed with comfy-casual outfits, perfect for everything from going to class, to running errands, to grabbing lunch with a friend. I love the contrast of the black shirt and belt with the light-wash shorts!

The end of the semester is getting crazy, but I’m trying to keep posting as regularly as I can! Creating different looks and sharing them with y’all brings me so much joy and I love taking time out of my day to write these #OOTD entries.
