I love the animal print trend. But, an animal print is one of those things that go terribly, horribly wrong.

Nothing looks worse than overwhelming head-to-toe cheetah (sorry Shania Twain) unless it’s competing prints — cheetah skirt and zebra bag, for example. And yes, I’ve seen this attempted in real life.

The simplest and safest way to walk on the wild side this fall is by adding an animal print accessory. I say “an” accessory because, if you choose wisely, you’ll only need one to stay on trend and in budget.

I’ve found a few pieces, above, that I absolutely adore. And, I hope you notice there’s not a stretchy, micro-mini from the Juniors Department anywhere in sight! Instead, I selected pieces that showcase the look in a classic, timeless way. So, when the trend is no longer “trendy” these will still be pieces you love!

C’mon ladies, let me hear you roar!

    I love that all these pieces are just classics….you’ll be able to wear them year in and year out (unlike those stretchy leopard print leggings I hope!) – I think a dash of animal print is a great way to make an otherwise ‘safe’ outfit pop!!
