Contrary to popular belief, the right to rock animal prints is not reserved only for hookers, bad 80’s throwbacks and Cruella DeVil. Jane of the Jungle is fabulous this fall—from accessories, to apparel, and footwear. Follow your fierce, animal instinct. Animal prints are a status symbol, think Upper East Side socialite, just beware of going too far into the wild. Prints bring glaring attention to themselves. So do the public a favor, and keep your stripes, spots and skins on your classier assets and far away from your bigger ones.

The BCBGirls ‘Mika’ Pump in leopardicon have a sock cushion insole for comfort when walking the concrete jungle. London Sole Ballet Flats in animal prints were a fave a Fashion Week.
