Fall Trend: Animal Prints

Happy Monday lovelies. I hope ya’ll had fabulous weekends! It rained like cats and dogs here in Tampa, so we were forced to stay inside for most of it. You can imagine how the dude felt about that. No outside play time makes for quite a cranky toddler. I’m looking forward to taking him out today she he can run off some steam. But seeing as he’s completely engrossed in his airplane DVD right now, I thought I would seize the moment to squeeze in a quick post. If you’ve been reading the glossies, you know that animal prints are going to be all over the place this Fall. Who has two thumbs and loves her some animal prints? THIS GIRL! RAWR! I plan on busting out my ruby pout and/or mani/pedi and taking full advantage of this “trend.”

How do you guys feel about animal prints? Although, you might not be down for a leopard frock, I don’t think there is anyone who doesn’t look fabulous in leopard pumps! How about an animal print bag or earrings like my Wendy Brandes zebra stud beauties that I debuted in a recent Champagne Saturday post?

However you interpret this trend, I just know you’re gonna look fierce!

  1. JAS says

    I LOVE an animal print. Seriously LOVE. Now that I am entering cougar-aged territory, not sure I can pull it off like I used to (that prob. will not discourage me from trying though),

    I must have that bag. And, how cute is the lining in that dress?! I feel a shopping spree coming on.

  2. Mande says

    Love the animal print post. Must go check out those bangles. Could that fabulous model be the beautiful Miss Kristin? 😉
    LOVE that amazing dress!!! xo

  3. Cecilia Slesnick says

    I love love love the animal prints. I “blame/owe” this devotion to my mother who from an early age assured me it was chic and fierce. I have ONE animal print maternity dress…but plenty of shoes. 🙂

  4. Lulu says

    Love it! Especially the necklace and the swimsuit. I think I need the necklace!

    My hubs lets me have total decision making in decorating the house, except for 1 thing, he has put a standing “veto” on anything animal print for home decor. My wardrobe is fine, but not pillows, rugs, mugs, etc. He can’t stand animal print home decor, LOL.

  5. Jen says

    I think animal prints are fun. Not sure about wearing an animal print dress, but I like the look of pairing shoes or a bag with some solid colors.

  6. Sandy says

    I am a fan of animal prints, I think in decorating and in fashion little pops of animal prints look super chic!!!
    The Marc tote and the shoes are sooo lovely!! I need to start saving up for the tote, I am in love with it!!!

  7. Kristin @ Peace, Love and Muesli says

    Hi, found you through SITS and saw your name was Kristin so thought I better come over and say hi.
    I am not an animal print lover, I’m much more a classic kinda girl. But I could be talked into those pumps and the gray dress with print lining is right up my alley! I am guessing the model is you?

    • stacy says

      @Kristin @ Peace, Love and Muesli, So flattered you like my piece – I’m a little more classic too, so I hid my leopard in the lining. The model is my good friend and jewelry genius Wendy Brandes.

      Have a great day!

  8. Krysten says

    I’m not such a huge animal print fan only because I think if it’s overdone it can look trashy. However, when understated (like these looks) it can look pretty fabulous too.

  9. Lucky Dame says

    Leopard print is by far my favorite compared to zebra and cheetah.

    Those shoes are MAHVELOUS! I love wearing an all black outfit and accessorizing with leopard details.

  10. WendyB says

    Leopard + red lips = you’re turning into ME! Yay!

    I swear, WWD should look back on my leopard Patrick Kelly dress that they mocked and weep for their lack of foresight.

  11. jill @ Teenage Bride says

    Happy Monday to you to!!

    I have always worried that animal prints are to bold for me. They are so much fun though. I have a black dress with a thin cheetah print belt and that is as bold as I have gone so far. I think it is time for me to step it up!!

  12. Chic Coles says

    I really love animal prints on accessories. Shoes, handbag, hair-piece, earrings! I have a pair of leopard Tory Burch flats that I absolutely live in during the fall!

  13. Meghan says

    The animal print trend is just not for me – but I do love the looks you posted. I just don’t think I can get away with it:( I need to unleash my inner animal, I suppose!

  14. stacy says

    WOW! I’m between Marc J and DVF? You are so sweet… thanks for the mention. And what a great study you put together on all of these fabulous animal prints. Love love love!

  15. lisa says

    Love the leopard chain link necklace, and my guess is that the model is Wendy Brandes. Wearing a dress with a leopard print lining seems like something she would do. 🙂

  16. krystal says

    i think animal prints are good but in really small doses…it’s hard to make them look classy!!
    and your little dude sounds like my husband – he goes stir crazy when he cant’ go mountain bike…oh my. and it did rain all day saturday 🙂

  17. Rachel says

    I love animal prints! I adore the scarf Nicole is wearing, the Aqua dress, and that Marc by Marc Jacobs tote especially. They’re each just the perfect amount of animal print!

  18. Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl says

    I leolove this printed post… See, it even got me stumbling on words lol I’m not always a fun of too much of animal print, but I love all of your picks – each looks classy and subtle instead of full on screaming “look at me, I’m an animal rawwrrr” lol

  19. Casee Marie says

    Oh my gosh, I’m in love with the Marc Jacobs tote! I don’t usually do animal prints myself, but I think they can look so darling and chic – especially accessories!
    Lovely post (:

  20. Deepa says

    Animal prints are amazing and I just did a spread about them on my site – I think that the trick to making it work is to wear that 1 special piece of animal print and build the outfit around it. Be it the scarf or the shoe – everything in moderation, right? 🙂

  21. Rachel says

    I’m not an animal-print-coating-my-body (okay, pun intended) kind of girl, but I LOVE the little accents and accessories. It adds a wild element to even the most refined look

  22. Crystal says

    I love animal print!!!! It’s my all time favorite. I decorated my room like that when I was in high school, now our nursery is a safari theme. My favorite are the bracelets!!!

  23. Allison says

    Love this post – I’m so insecure about all-over leopard print, but I love little touches of it, like with a fab Marc Jacobs handbag!
    Great post, girl! 🙂
    P.S. LOVE your earrings – I have the same scarf as you (but I think you wear it a LOT better than moi).

  24. firepages says

    I love animal print! I have way too many cheetah, leopard, and zebra scarves, but I must get my hands on those pumps! Thanks for the fashion forward pics!

  25. Tana says

    I can honestly say I love everything flipping piece you posted! Love it all and so so happy that its “in” still!!!!
    great post

  26. Imogen says

    I like animal print but I think it can be difficult to get right and there are many looks that are just too much. I have a pair of animal print flats which I love and I think that maybe jewellery, a bag or some detailing on clothes can look stylish but I think that a full leopard print dress is too much.

  27. Jessica says

    ROAR! I am right there with you in the jungle. I actually have quite a few animal print pieces in my closet- hummm… wonder why I have them before they were actually in? Oh well, either way I got some and can’t wait to wear them! Lovely, awesome and always fashionable post my beautiful friend. It has been raining here non-stop to (we got what ya’ll got) so little man is about to go insane! Love ya

  28. Bunny says

    I love love love animal print. I wear them, decorate with them, they are so classic and chic. Everything you listed for us to see is just stunning. I love the bathing suit and the dress.

  29. ms Givens says

    My daughter has those earrings.
    I love the tote, but I love animal print. I think its very classic and something you can invest in and have for years. I have featured it many times. I have an all leopard print ensemble and I am not afraid to wear it. LOL
    Thanks for mentioning me.

  30. Channon says

    I’m pretty picky about animal prints. A general, broad-sweeping answer would be NO, but I have a leopard print fitted pullover I adore, and I’m liking some of the animal print large handbags I’ve seen. I also think the leopard-ish pumps you flashed would love to live with me…

  31. MizzJ says

    Even though I wrote a post myself on zebra prints, I’m still a bit on the fence about this one as it’s a trend that can so easily go terribly, terribly wrong! I like the subtle peek of animal print on that dress – it’s a subtle and subversive way to incorporate animal prints safely.

  32. Purses Pastries Etc... says

    I think leopard prints can look totally adorable if done correctly. Personally I love printed ballet flats and scarves… and I’m feeling an sudden fondness for that Marc Jacobs tote you picture here!! 🙂
