While a few of these reasons for dressing people remain true on some level, we mostly choose our looks based on personal preference, trends and what’s available. Nature’s survival of the fittest wardrobes are still going strong, and some of the most interesting and useful decorations are found in the world of insects.
Even if a bug or critter isn’t obviously beautiful, it can still provide unique inspirations for color, shape and texture. Wings and carapaces offer some of the most beautiful color and pattern ideas, and exotic spiders have some enchanting markings as well.
There were so many gorgeous butterfly inspired sets to choose from, so I gathered them up into a collection. See more of my favorite butterfly collages.
