11 zebra print dresses to put a sartorial spring in your step this summer

Posted by for Fashion

Animal print remains as a big trend this summer, but want something a little cooler than leopard print? Make zebra print dresses your go-to this season.

The popularity of animal print has never really gone away. There was a time, not so long ago, when leopard print dominated the catwalk. There wasn’t a designer that wasn’t tapping into the trends as a new neutral. In fact, it was such a big trend in 2018 that we even dedicated an entire Stylist issue to the print, cover and all.

As the seasons progressed the demand for animal print was real, and not just the classic leopard print, but a whole safari full of options. From giraffe print to snake print and cow print, catwalks saw an influx in options and we couldn’t get enough. However, the monochrome appeal of zebra print has meant that this particular style of dress has continued its popularity long after its first catwalk moment. 

Industry insiders and street style stars are all onboard with zebra print dresses.

Taking on an animal print might feel quite overwhelming, especially if you are a strictly non-print person, but zebra print is a surprisingly easy addition to your wardrobe. 

Whether you’re gearing up for a staycation and want something to make you feel a little bit more exotic, or heading back to the workplace and in search of exciting summer inspiration, or even if you’re just looking for a summer dress to enjoy strolls in the park, we’ve rounded up the best zebra print dresses to give you a sartorial spring in your step this season.
