Pregnant Duchess Kate Looks Stunning in Animal Print

Animal Print Dress

This animal print dress looks similar to the coat which Kate Middleton sports in the above video. This dress is perfect for fall or winter wear.

These dresses come in your choice of animal prints, including: white leopard, brown leopard, lampart, tiger, and zebra.

The fabric is made from 95% cotton and 5% elastin for a stretchy jersey dress. This garment is machine washable for your convenience.

For the fall, you can pair this dress with your favorite boots or knee highs and wear a cream, khaki, or black scarf around your neck along with your sweater or winter jacket.

Kate wears her animal print maternity jacket with a cute black hat and matching heels. She certainly has made this style of maternity clothes very popular this season.

Animal Print Sweater

A light animal print maternity sweater or cardigan is a practical way to add some color to your maternity wardrobe. Choose a sweater that is comfortable and relaxed fit. The most comfortable fabrics are made from a blend of cotton, polyester, and spandex.

For a casual look, pair the sweater with your favorite jeans and winter boots. To dress it up, wear with a black skirt and your favorite pair of pumps.

Animal Print Leggings

As seen in Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine, these animal print leggings from Lilac are perfect with a black maternity top! They feature a waistband and a hidden panel. Hidden panels are perfect to wear when you don't want everyone to know that you're wearing maternity pants.

A faux leather stripe goes down the side of the legs giving you an edge that will make you stand out from the crowd with a unique flare. Wear these leggings all nine months and after pregnancy too!

The fabric is made from a blend of polyester and spandex. Hand wash or machine wash your pants in cold water on gentle cycle.

Animal Print Scarf

Peach Couture's leopard print scarf is one of my favorite animal print scarves on Amazon for maternity wear. It is bold, sexy, and perfect for drawing your eye away from your growing baby bump.

Wear this scarf on a cold evening to make a fashion statement. However, you can now wear scarves throughout any season.

These exotic looking animal scarves will bring out the wild side and give you a "daring" look no other fashion accessory can give. They're fun, exciting, unique and available in many exotic colors, including: Brown, Cream, Tan, and Grey Leopard.

New to wearing scarves? Read my hub about how to add a scarf to your maternity wardrobe.

How to Wear A Skinny Belt - Maternity Clothes


Animal Print Belt

The last option, and most subtle, for adding animal print to your maternity wardrobe is to add a skinny belt for a pop of wild color.

Skinny belts are best suited for maternity wear. You will hardly ever see a big bulky wide belt sold on a maternity dress, shirt, or pants. It's nearly always a very thin skinny belt.

Add your skinny belt to any loose fitting shirt or dress to minimize the appearance of your belly. The perfect skinny belt to buy is small enough to fit exactly below your breast bone and directly above your belly. See the above picture for an example of how to wear your skinny belt.

Animal Print Beanie & Gloves

Animal Print Beanie & Gloves

Another way to sneak some animal print into your wardrobe is by adding a beanie. Keep your pretty fingers warm with a pair of wild looking leopard spotted gloves.

The matching leopard knit fingerless set above from San Diego Hat Company is sold by Zappos. Order yours for just $24 by CLICKING HERE. With a ribbed cuff, these have a great stretch-to-fit design.

All of these options have an animal print pattern throughout. Most are one-size-fits-all. This is a great eye-catching way to finish off your outerwear with style.

      Executiveboss, thank you for your comments & opinions. None of these garments are made from any type of real fur nor is this article advocating such a behavior. - As you can tell from the title of the article: these are prints and not furs. Maybe I should be a little more clear and place a disclaimer for those who may be confused about the difference.

      That's giving the wrong message to people if you ask me people are already crazy enough as it is next thing you know they will start wearing endangered species on there heads next. Joan Rivers a great example of that. Keep it domesticated.

      I remember when I had some animal print clothes years ago. My tastes changed, and now I just don't like that pattern. It's interesting that maternity clothes are bringing that style back! :-)
