Animal Instincts

Stuck in a rut? Do you want to switch up your usual look without committing to a drastic change? Try adding some animal print into your wardrobe! Some animal prints such as leopard and snakeskin are so classic. Season after season, these prints pop up time & time again. However, some accessories are taking the shape of the animal itself. Remember when owls were huge? Yep, you can still find them! One of my favourite animals featured in jewelry is the snake. I remember seeing a stunning Sarah Jessica Parker shoot where she wore snake accessories, and I soon fell in love. How can you add animal prints into your wardrobe?

The easiest way to add animal inspired goodies to your outfit is through accessories. You can use a leopard print belt or bag as a statement piece to an otherwise simple outfit (think skinny jeans & a white T-shirt), or a great pair of zebra print shoes to jazz up your little black dress. The possibilities when it comes to animal accessories are endless, and you'll be feeling fearless and ferocious with your new wild additions.
