Wearing Animals 2 – Horses!

This is the second of my series on wearing animal prints.  As I mentioned in my last post, butterflies and horses are the this season’s darlings.  Last time I  talked about wearing butterflies so next up: horses!

Wearing horse prints is a little trickier.  If you want to hit upon the real trend of today you will want to wear patterns that feature horses for horses sake alone.  What do I mean by this?  Avoid all themes that have to do with people using horses for the most part.  I.e. cowboy related prints, equestrian prints , carriages, and also those where horses are intertwined with leather belts, gold chains and jewels… you know what I’m talking about! While these are fun looks in their own right, this is not what we are going for here. As well, unicorns don’t count, although they are obviously awesome in other ways ;).  I’ve done a little searching and this is not easy to do in vintage but here are few fun options available on Etsy, mostly from the 70s and 80s:

Accessories are a great way to get the vibe too, and there are lots of lovely pieces that you can find on Etsy particularly scarves, purses, pins and belt buckles!

If you like to be a little different from the rest… go for donkeys!  They are rarely featured I found out… so you might want to grab this amazing skirt!

And finally… in the end, I could not resist a few unicorns… wear these as you ride off into the sunset over spring time rainbows!
