Every fall/winter season is the same old story. There are your trends, of course. Deep jewel-like colors, sequins, fur, etc… etc. But there is one trend for this time of year that stands out from all the rest. I’m talking about animal prints! Leopard, cheetah, tiger, and zebra are your usual suspects… although I have seen some less common prints like giraffe. I don’t know about you, but when it comes to animal prints I tend to lean more toward spots rather than stripes. The problem with animal prints, however, is that they run the risk of looking gaudy. Definitely watch out for over-sized animal print accessories or even accessories with overly busy prints (like mixing more than one animal together). And don’t over accessorize with animal prints either! One piece is plenty! That is why I like the appearance of more animal print clutches this year. The prints are eye-catching, but the size is small. You really can’t go wrong! Plus they look great paired with your favorite little black dress. Check out these two styles I have pictured here! They are definitely my favorites so far!
Alaia Leopard Print Haircalf Clutch – $1670
A bit on the pricey-side, this gorgeous clutch features haircalf both front and back! This clutch is sleek, yet roomy. Perfect for holding your night-out essentials. I love the leopard print with the added shading. It makes for a more unique look.
Alexander Wang Prisma Haircalf Pouchette – $315
A more budget-friendly pick, you really can’t go wrong with this wristlet-style clutch. I love the smooth leather trim, complete with leather wrist strap. The print is more jaguar-ish, which I absolutely adore!
