Now Trending: Animal Chic

Animal prints have been a hot style on-and-off for years, but this fall the style is back ON in a big way! Animal print accessories are the hot item for fall. Leopard print has been all over flats, scarves, and even jewelry. Leopard loafers, particularly ones with hairy textures, have been a big hit so far this season.

However, this trend is heating up so fast that pieces are going past animal print and featuring other animal qualities! The hottest item of the moment are cat-embroidered flats. These do not feature cat print, but rather have the face of a cat embroidered on the toe! These adorable flats pictured to the right even have cat ear cut-outs to add to the animal aesthetic.

Scarves are always a fall staple, which allow them to participate fully in the animal print hype. You can go bold with an obvious leopard print in traditional golden yellow and black, or opt for something a little more tribal chic with mixed animal prints and non-traditional colors, like the green and orange mixed animal print scarf below.

Jewelry is one of the most fun ways to wear animal print this fall. You can mix and match all sorts of pieces with all sorts of outfits; jazz up some solid neutrals with a leopard print ring, or mix prints within your outfit combining cheetah flats with a zebra scarf and a tiger print ring.
