This fall, fashion emerges from mysterious, untamed regions, cloaked in the exotic patterns and textures of the animal kingdom.  Unleash your primal side and tread boldly in fierce separates that flaunt the dramatic designs of the jungle’s most feared predators.  Or reflect your tender charms with embellishments inspired by the woodland’s more vulnerable prey. Feeling fearless? Choose leopard or snakeskin motifs in tops or bottoms to layer under leopard print jackets. Or soften the look of the season with doe-like fur accents and cozy sweaters, as soft as a bunny’s belly. From the largest quadruped to the tiniest insect, let animal references creep, crawl and flutter into your closet, and you will be set to prowl in style.
