Fashion Cents: The Animal Print Trend

--By Kimberly Turner

It's funny, every season there is a declaration that some animal print is in trend. But, I have to admit that this season, it really is a key trend. You will find animal print in underwear to outerwear and EVERYTHING in between. So here are a few tips to help you wear this trend well and keep you from looking like you should be caged in:

  1. Break it up -- if you go full body, DON'T accessorize with the print too unless you want to fit into the wild.

  2. Accessorize only -- a great pair of animal print flats can "purr"ty up your all black ensemble.

  3. Scale down -- and not the wall but the print! If you are small don't go with huge prints and if you have a fuller figure don't chose a tiny pretty.
Now, check out the video to see what I'm talking about and then you should be ready to make them growl. Make sense?
