Spring Trends: Animal Instinct

Animal skins and prints that were huge this Fall are still relevant for Spring 2011. Python, leopard, or giraffe -- anything goes. That applies to accessories as well.

Why We Adore It: Anytime we are able to carry pieces from this season into the next, we are instantly in love! It further validates our purchases, after all. Also, the new, more neutral or colorful versions of the animal prints this season are beautiful.

How To Wear It: All the time and with nearly any look. In fact, you can incorporate this trend into any of the others mentioned. Pair a snakeskin-inspired bag with your 70's pieces or a leopard shoe or scarf with the boyfriend look. If this is your season to invest in a few new items, we recommend splurging on a dress or tunic by Blumarine or Giambattista Valli. Carry your pieces from Fall into Spring to stay on-trend as the season changes.

Where To Get It: We pulled this giraffe print from Stanley Korshak's racks, but we've found accessories in the animal trend all over store shelves already.
