PRINTS CHARMING: Call of the Wild
Feeling the call of the wild? Here’s how to answer – and transition your summer wardrobe into fall. Animal prints have always been timeless, seasonless and an effortless accent to any outfit, and leopard print has always led the pack. From Monroe to Bardot, Dior to Debbie Harry and royalty to rock and roll, these spots simultaneously scream primal, polished and a little bit o’ mischief. Just ask J Lo, Mariah, Queen Bey and ALL the Kardashians.
Wear in small doses as opposed to head-to-tail (or toe) so as not to create overkill. And while pairing with black may seem like the law of the jungle, it’s not the only choice. A chunky heel makes a high-waisted grey short the cat’s meow. Take skinnies or capris for a prowl with a slip-on sneaker. Soft browns and beige fall sweaters sing with a simple or pointed-toe ballerina. Layer a feline fantastic scarf over lilac or white… or pair a chukka sneaker with orange or coral. Wild thing, you make our hearts sing.
