Animal Instincts

If you swung full force into spring’s animal prints, you’re in luck – leopard is still on the trend watch list this fall, but with a slightly more subtle groove.

Weaving the wild into the coming season’s wardrobe is simple. Whether you’re drawn to the daintiness of ruffles or the mightiness of leather, your exotic belts and scarves are welcome additions to autumn’s garment game. Keep those spots fierce, pairing your existing pieces with the newer trends such as high-waisted jeans, see-through fabrics, and chunky-soled boots.

Sure, you can still venture out in a head-to-toe wildcat, but if that’s not for you, know that even a little roar can go a long way.
