Animal Instinct

I love trends that pack a punch, are easy to interpret and can live in your closet for more than just the season. One of my favorite trends for the fall is animal print. It's sexy, applicable to all age groups AND body types. You can interpret the look as boldly or as minimally as it suits you and your sense of personal style.

If you are feeling bold and love the impact of leopard or zebra print, try a tunic or dress that makes an immediate statement about your bold and stylish flare. If you are looking for a more subtle interpretation, add a leopard print belt to an your outfit for a little pop.

Look for animal prints when buying shoes this season. It's an easy way to add instant style to a simple black dress. Add printed shoes with denim and a crisp tshirt and have a casual/cool look that can take you from day with animal print flats to night with some sexy animal print heels or booties.

If you love the look and want to incorporate it on a daily basis, try an animal print/animal skin handbag that will surely add a sophistication to your everyday outfits.

For those of you that are scared of the look but are intrigued, start with a simple scarf -- it's an easy and inexpensive way to try it out.

This is a great trend that will definitely be a look that you will enjoy having in your closet for seasons to come. Even more exciting -- it's a trend that designers and stores are offering at a variety of price points that easily fits everyone's trend budget.

As for me, I'm going to rock the look in as many options as possible. I'm starting with shoes -- all I need now is a little black dress and some red toe nail polish.
