MoS Obsessions: Animal Prints for Fall

As always, one of our favorite Fall accessories involves an animal print. Leopard in particular is huge this fall and is the perfect way to add a little fun to your outfit.  While the thought of wearing an animal print might make you a little nervous, it truly can be done tastefully.  For example, Jackie Kennedy wore this leopard-print coat while serving as First Lady.  Can you imagine the comments if a First Lady today took such a risk?!

This Kate Spade look is just perfect- skinny jeans with a sparkly tank, a rich chocolate brown not-too-slouchy hobo, all jazzed up with some leopard slingbacks.  It's fun without trying too hard.

We've broken down our favorite animal accessories for Fall into Gold, Silver, and Bronze.  As you will see, our designations are based upon price point alone, because many of our favorites of each category are not the most expensive!

Leopard Flats
 These are perfect with skinny jeans and a black sweater for fall.  Add a red bag for a fun pop of color! 




Leopard Pumps
When you are headed out at night, leopard pumps are a great way to jazz up your LBD.  We also love them with emerald green.




Animal Apparel
Use in small doses and pair with an otherwise plain look (read: black or denim, pencil skirts and straight pants).




Cheetah Belts
One of our favorite looks is a fun animal belt over a long-ish boyfriend cardigan and skinny jeans. 




Animal-Print Clutches
Animal-print clutches have always been one of our wardrobe staples.  My sister gave me a fabulous one a few years ago, and I have carried it countless times since. 





And just for fun....

A leopard needlepoint headband from one of our favorites, Smathers and Branson.

So what do you think?  Will you be adding any animal prints to your wardrobe this Fall?

Great post! I love that animal prints have become somewhat of a classic. What I wouldn't give for a georgous coat like Jackie's!?

Great timing! I just looked in the mirror and decided my outfit needed a pop and that a leopard print skinny belt would do just the trick. Off to shop!
