How to Show Your Spots

This weekend SoHo was stocked with animal prints – everything from leopard to crocodile.

Depending on your fashion skill you can either look chic or like you just walked off the Tarzan set.

Here’s an article from about.com on [url=http://fashion.about.com/od/latesttrends/qt/animalprints.htm?nl=1]How to Wear Animal Prints[/url]:

1. Scale animal prints to your size. Tighter prints like cheetah and leopard look great on most people. Larger scale prints like cow or giraffe have lots of white space in them and are more difficult to pull of.

2. Pair animal prints with neutrals (black, khaki, cream, white) or play off of equally bold colors (leopard with hot pink, zebra with lime).

3. If big pieces of print aren’t for you try a coat with an animal-print lining or a print purse.

4. Remember that you’ll be calling attention to wherever you put the animal prints, so make sure you’re putting it on your best feature (no print pants on big bottoms or tight print tops on large busts).

For budget shoppers try vintage prints. Check out the faux leopard fur beauties like the swing coats, stylish hats and warm wool coats with leopard trim on [url=http://www.fashiondig.com/shop/search_advanced_results.asp?ColorGroupTypeID=All&SeasonTypeID=All&AttitudeTypeID=3&OccassionTypeID=All&SizeTypeID=All]fashiondig.com[/url] Use the [url=http://search.fashiondig.com/cgi-bin/ts0.pl?index=176415]Search Engine [/url] to pinpoint your desired print. Enter the type you are seeking (leopard, alligator, snakeskin, lizard, etc.).
