rock n' rawr

Not too long ago I was invited to a birthday soiree for one of the most adorable gals I know. As if that wasn't enough reason for me to attend... it was also a girls night out plus a ferocious feline dress code! I was so there. Each one of the ladies meowed an animal print from their wardrobes to encompass one of the following three looks:

1. The dress. Wearing a leopard print dress embodies confidence and style. Tone it down with some neutral layering like a bolero or shrug and simple footwear or unleash your wild side by adding some additional color! Key is to be tasteful. Not tacky.

2. The scarf. A statement piece such as a scarf adds instant drama. The closer the print is to your face, the less you'll have to add more accessories to your look. This may be one of the easiest ways to wear a fun and daring print without over committing.

3. The blouse + denim. Simply trendy. Stay modern with the style of your top or blouse to avoid looking like you just stepped out of a safari. Seriously. Dark denim (especially a skinny jean) pairs well with a printed top.
