On trend or trendy…you pick. Animal prints a long time favorite can define your outfit. Turn heads when you walk into the room with a splash or accent of animal print such as a sweater, scarf or boot cuff . Or maybe your whole ensemble . 

Animal prints have long been popular , considered exotic  and glamorous,and  they were  used throughout history as decor. Popularity with women's clothing started circa 1940's in the USA.

Throw on an animal print overcoat , paired with black stockings or tights for a dressy look or over jeans and leggings for a more casual look . Add a scarf for a pop of color . A great bag always rounds off and balances your look. Coordinate your outfit with a matching print bag or compliment it with a coordinating solid one.
