 At GGBailey.com, we’re big fans of animal designs. We love the classic and stylish look of leopard, tiger, and zebra patterns in our Car Couture™ line of woven car floor mats. But one pattern in particular has seen a recent rise in the fashion world -- zebra. Let’s take a look at some of this year’s best zebra-themed trends.

For lots of zebra inspiration, follow our board on Pinterest!

Zebra + Brights

This year, designers and decorators are jumping to pair the zebra’s classic black and white stripes with bright colors like oranges and yellows. The tiny zebra really pops against the bright coral background of this purse.

Bold Zebra

Bold, lifesize stripes (or bigger) are definitely favored over thin zebra stripes in this season’s fashions and designs. Look how these big stripes stand out as a bath rug.

Stripes are getting bigger, but who says they have to be black and white? The coloring on this albino zebra is mirrored on this textured J. Crew shirt.
