 Animal Print 

 Thrilled to see it-girl Katie Holmes as the new face of Bobbi Brown cosmetics! A modern style icon Katie is the perfect choice for the brand as she is “a classic natural beauty, entrepreneur, and mother” according to beauty maven Bobbi Brown. Katie’s style choices help to emphasize her natural beauty. Taking fashion cues from Katie, who was spotted in this fabulous leopard print trench coat, I’m going to show you how to incorporate animal print into your fall wardrobe.

The key to wearing animal print is pairing it with a neutral such as black, nude or beige. Too many competing prints and colors can make an outfit look tacky instead of chic. Get Katie’s look with this Gryphon New York trench coat. Pair it with a simple little black dress like this one from Ann Taylor and wear these retro Gucci glasses for an updated spin on Jackie O.

 

 Bold Animal Prints 

Taming your animal prints with neutrals doesn’t mean your look has to be blah.  Start with these Current Elliot pants (tip: stay away from pants that are too shiny or too tight!) and balance the look with a neutral silk blouse like this one from Alexander Wang. Make a bold statement with your accessories like this leather and chain necklace from Stella and Dot. Pay attention to your ensemble from head to toe and wear these Jeffery Campbell strappy heels.

 

 

 Fierce Accents

Incorporating animal print into your fall wardrobe can be as simple as adding a fierce accent like this animal print belt by Warehouse. When you use animal print as an accent you can play up bolder choices like this coral skirt but again, pair it with a neutral! This black Twenty shirt with leather shoulders keeps this look chic.

 

 Wild for Style

Go wild with this Free People animal print blouse but master the overall look with a simple black skirt. For chillier days wear tights! These neutral lace-up booties are a perfect match for the animal print theme. Don’t be afraid to accessorize with chunky jewelry like this hammered gold bracelet from Piperlime and jade Camilla ring from Stella and Dot.
