Leopard Print Blouse, $29 (is sadly only available to our UK friends, but try this similar one from NY & Company

Animal prints appear every season, on everything from shoes to coats to dresses. But if worn the wrong way, you can start to resemble one of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. So when opting for the spots or the stripes, tread carefully. 


An animal print can be appropriate for the office as long as it is balanced with muted, solid colors. Pair a leopard blouse with charcoal grey wide leg pants. Throw on a dark cardigan and add a flower pin for that Mad Men touch. A burgundy Mary Jane will add color to the ensemble, while a whimsical ring will complete the look. And don't forget your day bag – in something other than standard black.
