Release your inner wild cat, and make sure you have these trends in your closet. Disney is creating new versions of their classic Disney characters, and the latest to hit theaters is The Lion King. While revisiting our childhood film favorite in new photo-realism is exciting, let’s get more excited to see the Lion King-inspired trends. Take a look at some of the best looks taken from the screen and bringing it to your wardrobe.
Leopard print has been a strong look for a couple seasons, and with wild cats on our minds, the print will stay for another couple seasons at least. Wearing animal print (faux obviously) brings out an inner power. It doesn’t matter if you were feeling confident or not before but wearing some ferocious patterns will automatically have you channeling your inner king or queen.
Don’t forget about the faux fur purse we can easily add to our summer outfit to transform and add a little meow in our step.
Which reminds us, summer is hot, but the faux fur you wear doesn’t have to be. Do you want a mane like the lion or lioness that you are? It doesn’t matter if you have a baby mane like Simba or some serious locks on you like Mufasa, curl, tease, twist, rock the high bumped pony. Time to let the hair go a little feral. If your hair is naturally frizzy, cat-like or amazing in other terms, then let your hair flow free. If you have thin hair, tease it and make it bounciful.
Put tan in the word fanTANstic. We are wearing our nude, tan, natural brown tones. Heat is in the air, the dry, stagnant, stale heat that you breathe in. It is hard to imagine putting on clothes much less leave the house. But your friend calls and is dragging you out for sangria and pizza. Remember The Lion King and opt for something tan. A lion’s smooth golden hue fur embodies calm and cool. Slip on a tan, naked dress ( like Carrie Bradshaw did when she rocked the naked dress with her first date with Mr. Big). Let’s leave big impressions.
Maybe the naked dress isn’t your thing? Tan and shades of brown are great on all skin tones; it is mature yet sexy. Get a shimmery brown tank top and black skinny jeans. Yes, The Lion King paints Scar as the bad guy, and he just might be, but we all could use a little bad in our wardrobe. So, put them into yours.
The safari look isn’t only for the Jumanji. So grab your safari look because the world is savage. That means earthy tones, the dry sandy browns, the clay-like green, the oranges of the sunset. Don’t shy away from refined casual look such as the cargo pant and boyfriend’s button up top. If you are going into the jungle, dress like you’re the king of the jungle.
