Grrrrowl…. There’s a Fierce Fashion Forecast
Animal prints, furry accents, and wildlife references
Lions, and tigers, and snakes, oh my! Add some instant zap to your wardrobe with your own reserve of fashion fierceness.
There’s nothing short of walking on the wild side with bold animal prints, maxed-out faux fur accents, and sleek black leather to pack some pow into your core wardrobe.
Reptile is a bit edgier and more unexpected than classic leopard, but that’s doesn’t mean you need to forgo big cat patterns, simple wear them in a more modern way. A zebra pattern sweater with strong shoulders, perhaps? Or try a blast of cheetah on the wedge of a simple bootie. You can also go gaga over crocodile-print leather, perhaps a jacket this time?
We prefer not to wear vanity furs, but a fluffy fake fur gilet (that’s a sleeveless jacket) or cropped faux fur chubby creates instant glam. Too much for you? Why not try a furry bobble or trapper hat or, my favorite, a rich furry cowl to wrap around your neck.
Get with the fashion herd to all that is exotic, but try to wear only one animal reference at time to keep it chic.
Think about our shopping suggestions below, but do take a peek at our Animal Prints Shopping Guide for more that’s fierce and fabulous.
