Over the years popularity of animal prints in ladies’ apparel has risen and fallen along with the population of various species. PETA periodically plays a part in downplaying or squashing the donning of fur but faux fabrics have filled the need of animal lovers who wish to respectfully tout and wear their favorite animal skin over their own skin. In the jungle scene, giraffes and Big Cats stalk the styles.
Greg Norman has a whole collection of ladies apparel called Animal Instincts. The faux black leather skort and jacket could work as well buzzing down the highway on a motorcycle as on a fairway in a golf cart. A bright blue giraffe print delivers a different pow on a polo complemented by solid blue long sleeves. The same blue print on a quilted vest reverses to solid black. Flamingo Easy Play Shorts are bright white splattered with colorful little flamingoes emblazoned in pink, blue and green.
GG Blue’s Serengeti Sparkles collection incorporates a lighter blue with traditional brown in Cheetah and Zebra prints on multiple pieces while crocodile prints are the choice of JoFit for tops and bottoms.
On the Tee Ladies Golf Socks are available in zebra white, beige giraffe, tiger taupe or cream and cheetah ecru or taupe patterns. Socks are optional when wearing Sand Bagger golf shoes. Their comfortable slip on Vanessa styles in brown or gray leopard print are now on sale.
If you have an affinity for snakeskins, check out Tail’s Willow Dress for Golf or their Janet Top both wrapped in a Boa Honeydew print.
Jamie Sadock’s Animal Print top reflects her characteristic asymmetrical design. Tee 2 Sea painted a Pink Zebra golf dress with or without sleeves and Susan Hess at Golftini Wear has actual pink giraffes implanted on her skort. Her previous season’s skort lined up little navy elephants. What will she and the rest of the designers do next with their animal instincts?
