Wild Style

Animal prints have long been associated with a woman's inner diva.  Wearing an animal print adds an instant sex appeal to any outfit.  This trend is definitely hot for Fall 2010.  The wild prints were seen in many variations on the runways and now celebrities have been spotted wearing it too.  Who would have thought this print that was once seen as tacky could become so chic.

For everyday wear it can be overkill to wear the print from head to toe as see in the looks for Dolce & Gabbana.  Only the very daring and most confident can get away with that in the real world.  But for those with jobs that are a little more conservative you can wear the print as an accent piece.  Choose a scarf, shoes or bag with the funky print.  Better yet wear an animal print blouse with solid coloured trousers or a pencil skirt to keep it chic yet simple.  You can find this trend at reasonable prices in stores like H&M, Winners, TJ Maxx, TK Maxx, Macy's, Forever21and Zara.  Don't forget that Vintage shops always have some great items that are one of a kind and still on trend.

If you're in the splurging mode, pick up a pair of Christian Louboutin's animal print shoes pictured below.  They go for approximately $700 USD.  This pump is from 3 seasons ago but, it is still a hot item on trend today.  An even bigger splurge is the Louboutin Double Platform Python Pump.  This current season shoe retails for $1370 USD.
