Fashion Inspiration - Zebra Print Accessories

You may have noticed my fascination with zebras this week. I have looked at real life zebras and zebra print in furniture, zebra print in fashion and now continuing with zebra print accessories.   How wonderful would these be with a little black dress?

Or these. Not vintage but very glam.

And this hat!  I just love it. It a 1960s Schiaparelli design.

Zebra print seems to have been popular in the 1960s.  Here is model Wilhelmina Cooper photographed by David Bailey for the cover of Vogue, September 1964, wearing a black and white zebra-skin scarf by Adolfo as a hat or 'burban.'

And another photo by David Bailey, for Vogue UK, September 1965, with model Sue Murray wearing a zebra print sleeveless hoodie.

This would have to be my favorite zebra outfit - from 1968.

It would be just perfect for my trip to Melbourne in June. This photo was taken only a year before I was born - I think mu mum had a hat like that!

Zebra print underwear was also a hit in the 1950's, as this lovely 1954 ad suggests.

Of course if all fails and you can't find anything to fit, you could just go with a whole zebra hide - Gary Cooper Style.
