Happy Monday friends!
We don’t know if it’s the youtube cat video craze that brought this on, or maybe sir Grumpy cat is to blame but lately fashion has had a serious love affair with anything animalistic. Leopard prints have of course been around for a while and are making a serious comeback along with zebra, snake, giraffe, etc. Half the zoo can be found on the runway!
This time, however, the animal print has taken on a new graphic pop-arty persona. Case in point: Christopher Kane’s animal face dresses and model of the moment Cara Delevingne’s lion face tattoo.

Here are some ideas on how to wear animal prints both for day and for night:
Rony wore a chiffon overlay leopard print strapless dress with a snake print ribbon belt, leopard print slipper flats and clutch, and a gold and rope necklace.
Wearing triple leopard print works in this outfit because each item has its own variation of the print and color, rather than being too matchy.
The tribal, ethnic style of Rony’s necklace compliments the animal theme of the outfit and the gold spikes give it a bit of cool edge.
Vera wore a stretch tiger print dress with a gray vest, studded purse, rhinestones collar necklace, black hat and studded sandals.
**maternity styling tips** For women who like to show off their bump, as Vera does, stretchy dresses are very comfortable but should be worn at a size bigger so that they don’t look too tight.
Don’t be afraid of wearing edgy, punky looks; we believe women shouldn’t have to change their style when they are pregnant, in fact they should embrace and flaunt their pregnancy!
