Animal Print Chic

For me, animal prints never go out of style. The pattern, no matter the animal, transcends time and trends.  Isn't that lovely? It's all a matter of classy mixes, textures and design. Sure, one can get too excited and kill the effect (no pun intended), but when done right, rocking animal print exudes confidence, a heightened level of fashion and understanding of design. And, it's not just for fall and winter! There are plenty of hot-weather pieces we can enjoy now! 

These pieces and accessories are classic enough to carry you through season without feeling overwhelmed or like a cheetah attacked you. One styling note: don't wear more than two different prints at once. That could be a serious disaster! The umbrella is a great example of a canvas that incorporates many patterns. Just don't go rocking a bag, shoes or head scarf! A watch (been wanting a Michael Kors one for a while now!) on the other hand, could elevate your chicness!

All three of my girls "get it" when it comes to animal prints. We all wear it, tastefully, and girl we are even incorporating it into paint jobs in their bedrooms. ROAR!
