Kawaii Cute Japanese Stickers Fairy Tale by FromJapanWithLove
by Ida Hsiang
There was a time when animal prints were reserved for the ladies of Jersey Shore and Peg Bundy. Not anymore! In the last couple of seasons, we've seen animal print take on a new role from trashy-chic to just plain old chic. Leopard print (faux) fur coats and other outerwear were all the rage, but now that the sun has returned, what to do to still rock this wildly hot trend without over-heating? Sheer tops, breezy dresses and lightweight jackets are a great way to transition this safari-inspired trend from cooler weather to hot sunny days. Or stick to your usual neutrals and add pops of animal print in your accessories like heeled sandals or wedges and large roomy totes and versatile cross-body bags! Check out the slideshow for inspiration!
