From snakeskin and leopard prints, to zebra and crocodile skins, animal hides are trending in a major way this season.. Despite the war against fur which major fashion houses have undertaken, the latest trending wild skin was slowly picking up behind the scenes.. We are of course talking about the cow print..!
Cow prints debuted their first appearance all over the Spring 2019 runways.. Fashion designers incorporated new animal prints and we even witnessed some major clashing between different wild skins.. As a result, a few celebs actually followed through and exhibited cowhide recently..
The very pregnant Meghan Markle was spotted wearing a characteristically chic outfit consisting of a cap-sleeved maternity dress by Hatch and a camel coat by Oscar de la Renta. However, it was the shoes that got us all hyped.. Markle chose a pair of heels from Gianvito Rossi which featured black and white cow print.
Prior to Markle’s cowhide statement shoes, fashion designer Victoria Beckham also made a case for the cow print.. The 44-year-old sported a white shirt and matching asymmetrical skirt, which were both decorated with digitally printed cowhide alongside the caption: “Swipe up to shop my favourite print from my new collection.” The pieces are currently available on Beckham’s website alongside a midi dress and cross-body bag in the same style.
So what could make cowhide appealing to almost anyone? We’re guessing the neutrality of black/brown and white is the cow print’s main aesthetic.. Which makes it easy to incorporate into your current wardrobe, that and the endless array of pops of color that you can adorn your print with in absolute confidence..
As we scour the net for high street fashion alternatives we found out that Mango was one of the first affordable brands that embodied the cow print..
