Leopard Buttons Are The Biggest Trend for 2020

We’re sure we don’t need to tell you that animal print has become a major fashion trend in recent seasons. Tiger stripes, zeebra, snakeskin, and, of course, trendy leopard, animal print is everywhere! Having said that, though, while you might think of animal print on a large scale on all your favorite garments, we’re also fascinated by the concept of adding in pops of animal print on a small scale through the use of buttons, in particular.

And so, all that being said, today we want to inspire your sense of style and design by showing you how you can add leopard print buttons on all kinds of garments, including shirts, coats, and even hair accessories.

Trust us, while we completely believe that there’s always a place for more classic buttons in the design process, with animal print so on trend, now is the perfect time to bring some visual interest to your design with leopard print buttons. Let us show you how by sharing SUNMEI’s latest leopard print button collection, available in February 2020.
