Feeling Wild.

Animal print has many interesting characteristics. A small touch can make you feel sexy and flirty. A bold piece screams fashion confidence. The right animal print can often work as a neutral, and it always feels fun! It can also be a chic added detail to your favorite all-black look. However, finding the perfect piece can be a challenge...

After a long search for the perfect animal print pump, I found it in an unexpected place. My favorite boot designer, Loeffler Randall, has an amazing shoe line. (Remember, Loeffler Love?) The cheetah print on this pump is small and understated. The tapered and sophisticated pointy toe make it a tasteful animal print option. Look at how gorgeous these are!

What are my other favorite ways to wear animal print? Try a fitted cardigan, but be sure the print is small. A luxurious animal print scarf looks great on women of all ages. And don't forget my go-to: an animal print silk blouse is to die for (see post here). I also love a glamourous leopard print coat.

Some additional tips on animal print:

1) Be sure you always wear your animal print in a tasteful way. Otherwise, it can look tacky and cheap. Therefore, avoid combining this bold trend with lace or leather details.

2) If you are unsure about your animal print combination, wear only one item of animal print at a time.

3) Pay close attention to the material of the animal print item you choose to wear. Avoid plastic, polyester, satin, and pleather.

4) When it comes to animal print shoes, beware of super high platforms (unless, of course, you are looking for a very sexy night out option), and lots of straps. A delicate animal print peep-toe pump is always a good idea.

Any questions? Ooh la la.

Treat everyday like you are on the runway.
