Walking on the wild side never looked so marvelous. Undeniably stylish, exotic prints add a catwalk essence to your wardrobe. Get ready to ditch the black clothes typically associated with cold weather and go for bold, wild prints. Life’s too short to wear boring clothes or shoes anyways! With a few styling tips from us, you’ll be wearing your favorite faux skins everywhere from the office to an after five get-together.

Wild About Shoes



If you love to wear understated outfits such as a white pantsuit, then add a pair of bold printed shoes to make for an exciting ensemble. The simplicity of the suit will draw attention to your fabulous shoes.  A pair of reptile print pointy heels is always a sophisticated choice.

The Nine-to-Five



If you want to wear this edgy trend, but want to stay conservative with the prints because of work, reach for a pattern in black and white. A printed pencil skirt with a solid top looks very polished for your next meeting.  If your office is cold like most (brr!), simply add a fitted blazer for extra coverage. It’s a great way to rock animal print in a chic and subdued style.

Basic Instinct


  



For accessories, keep hardware to a minimum, focusing instead on glossy leather bagsin subtly strong colors and understated exotic prints.  While you’re at it, look for structured bags. These handbags come in various exotic patterns and are very on trend this season!

Striking Layers

If your personal style is bolder than most, then take this trend to the next level. Fall outfits tend to have several layers, so use it to your advantage. Typical layers include a sweater, undershirt, belt or a blouse.  Switch out one of your bland layers for one that features exotic prints. A leopard-printed blouse under a solid-colored cardigan is very fashionable and classy.

Scarf Love

Who could forget about scarves? We sure didn’t! Scarves make it easy to include a touch of exotic print into a fall outfit.  They aren’t as expensive as a printed blouse or skirt, so you’ll be able to buy a variety of patterned scarves without breaking the bank.
