Accessories Report

Personally, I have always been a fan of animal print, even when it wasn’t trendy. However, within the past year nothing screams fearless more than leather and animal print thrown in the mix. It wasn’t too long ago that animal print and leather was a fashion no-no if it was worn as anything besides a coat. However, this Fashionista was able to put that theory to the test and made sure that animal print doesn’t fall into extinction. This outfit executes the idea that there is nothing wrong with mixing animal print and the chic leather look together.

It is safe to say that this Fashionista’s accessories made her outfit. First thing that really stood out was her animal print leggings. Bold prints have been trending for months and what better way to bring in the newest and re-occurring trend of animal print as a bold pattern that is already popular. The purpose of bold prints is for them to be bold, so the bolder the better!

This Fashionista’s choices of leather really tied her outfit together. Since no one wants to walk out the house looking like Cat Woman, it is wise to pick leather in proportion. This Fashionista chose to do so with an army green jacket and a shiny, buckled two-toned backpack. Nothing says winter like deep army-green and lets not forget that this Fashionista’s backpack is the perfect size for class. Why not sport around a sassy backpack to class that screams, “I can be studious and look good doing it.” Lastly, the subtle touch of her brown Steve Madden combat boots finish the outfit, making her stand out from head to toe.

This outfit is a perfectly executed look that has been trending through the magazines this past year. What better way to make a statement on the first week of class?
