It’s about that time of year again! Yes, I’m talking about Fall! And that means it’s time for all those animal prints to come out of the closet! What was once called a “trend” is now becoming a classic wardrobe essential for those months when the leaves begin to fall. Why? I think the reason this look keeps cropping up year after year is because it makes you feel kind of warm and fuzzy. And that’s just the feeling you want when the temperatures outside begin to drop. This look can also be a lot of fun, even a little bit quirky. But please ladies! If you decide to do the animal print thing this Fall… be sure to do it right! Just one piece, like a structured handbag, is all you need! There really is no need to pile it on!
So what kinds of animal prints are we going to see this year? When it comes to handbags, there is a little bit of everything. From leopard to zebra, we are sure to see it all! The only difference I have been seeing is that there are a lot more animal prints in the gray/black palette (as opposed to the tan/brown palette). The result is a much more subtle look that is still a little bit on the wild side! Just take a look at the bags I have pictured here and you will see what I mean!
