STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Taking Chances With Cheetah

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Taking Chances With Cheetah

From season to season, animal print manages to weasel its way into the fashion world. Whether bathing on the beach or perusing downtown shops, people constantly discover new ways to incorporate this bold print into their wardrobe.

When I think of how to rock animal print in any outfit, I look for accent pieces. A fully-printed dress would no doubt put you at the center of attention, but a pop of print here and there is a simple way to spice up your style. Printed skinny belts draw eyes to the waist when paired with jeans or a skater dress and stepping into a printed pump for a night out adds some fun to your little black dress. Lately I have seen animal print accents of purses and scarves during the winter weather, revealing just how easy it is to include it at any time of the year. Incorporating smaller amounts rather than overloading with an entire article of clothing allows for you to adjust your style as you please and alternate the ways in which you utilize your printed piece.

This Fashionista shows us how her cheetah print can work in all kinds of weather. While keeping the rest of her outfit neutral, her printed flats add the perfect touch to make her polished ensemble a bit spunkier. Because of versatility, she can wear these shoes with almost anything. She could even choose to carry a printed clutch to flaunt more of this fun fabric in her look. No matter which way you wear it, you can be sure to stand out and kill it in your printed accents. I believe that hints of animal print in an outfit have become such a classic trend due to the adaptability of style and color, making it a must-have all year round.
