Usually in Wisconsin we see fashion trends a year after they are hot.
I won't let this one go unnoticed, since it is so easy to do.
In this week's Hot Trends for women and men, we show you the Animal Print.
Leopard print..giraffe.. funky crosses.. between Zebra and snake...its all very in this season.
It is being show in fashion magazines & catalogs and even stars like Kate Hudson are embracing this bold look. The animal print -is- hot for sure...But be warned.
"don't look like you are in the Serengeti - we want just once piece. we don't want head to toe leopard. "
Here's a quick lesson...this daring leopard print dress is enough on its own. Do not...repeat... do not pair it with these shoes....that's overkill... on any safari.
"animal prints - a little goes a long way. you can have maybe a camisole that has an animal print on it and then a nice sweater - you can do your shoes. "
The animal print is even showing up in more subtle ways in men's clothing seen here. With Sarah and her date.
However, if you are not ready to express your inner tiger or snake, you can still enjoy the colors of the season.
" the color pallet is very popular - it never goes out of style. The browns, the golds, the bronze. "
I used the Cache catalog and the People Style Watch Magazine by the way.
The look was also featured in Black and White Market's catalog too.
