Fashion Forward: Animal Prints
Lions and tigers and bears, oh my... Well maybe you can skip the bears, but when it comes to fashion, go wild and go for an animal print. Shireen Sandoval shows us how in tonight's Fashion Forward.
Cavalli's all about leopards.
From dresses... to purses... to shoes...you've got to have animal instincts when it comes to clothes this season.
Corina Biton of Neiman Marcus says, "Animal prints have continued to be a hot trend."
Head to Neiman Marcus for that purr-fect outfit...try a leopard print jacket over a pretty printed top.
Or soften things up with a chiffon blouse.
Corina says, "Big prints, small prints, different tones of animal prints. In peaches, in browns, in tans, it's a whole assortment."
You could be called a sex kitten in this sexy satin halter dress.
But whatever you do, make sure you don't overdo it.
Corina says, "You definitely don't want to wear animal prints head to toe, you want to pick the one part that you want to showcase, being a top or a bottom or dress or your shoes or your handbag and stick to one item.
At Burdines, it's hard to stick to just one item when animal prints are everywhere.
"Animal prints bring out that wild side, that sexy side to all women that wear it."
Prowl around town in a leopard print mini.
Or mix and match your look.
Try a pair of animal print capris...
Or throw on a jacket with a hint of the wild side.
"Great blouses, print pants, trim on jackets, trim on shoes, handbags, just a little touch of animal print goes a long way."
"You don't want to wear that animal print head to toe, it's a little big overkill."
