Animal Instinct

Everyone it seems is seeing spots! Just when you thought animal print was fading, along comes another does for winter 2010. Love it or hate it- animal print is having a fashion moment all its own with sophisticated leopard and cheetah print. The jungle has moved to the catwalk! Leopard print is everywhere and on anything, in different styles and colors. These prints are larger than life- coats, dresses, handbags, scarves, heels, boots, you name it. The great thing about incorporating animal prints into your wardrobe is that it will stick around till spring and summer of 2011. After five decades, this trend is more popular than ever. The key to wearing this smokin' trend is to pair it with bright solid colors. Yellow, green, purple, blue, even bright pink and red are the colors this season to wear with these gorgeous prints. Keep animal print to one single piece and keep the rest of your outfit simple; the safest way to wear animal print is cautiously! Wearing animal print is just way too much, unless you're the daring few. For a classic look, try a pair of leopard print boots with a black pencil skirt and a crisp white top.  For a "I am woman, hear me roar" look, wear a leopard print coat with leather pants and over-the-knee boots or stilettos. Remember there is a fine like between tasteful and tarty. Animal print is just waiting for you to get your paws on it!
