Faux fur, cheetah print, snakeskin, oh my! On the hunt for animal-inspired fashion finds? Take a walk on the wild side with these upgrades to your winter wardrobe.
1. Faux Fur: Once again, this sought after garment takes center stage. Doubling as a stand-alone or personalization piece, Ralph Lauren’s Long Shearling Vest warms your hands with two patch pockets at the waist and two hook-and-eye closures at the front. This sleeveless silhouette rivals your favorite snuggle blanket, while boasting runway appeal (and with a runway price tag of $2,998).
This Indian Fur Cascade Vest by Alice & Olivia offers a less guilty pleasure. Inspired by the mix of uptown and downtown, this $698 au courant piece has an alluring drape style front panel that will keep you cozy this season.
2. Cheetah Print: No need for a safari adventure with our cheetah inspired piece. Versace’s Animal Print Lace Dress in black elevates the “little black dress” with a peek-a-boo animal print lace paneling, a hidden back zip and a round neckline (retails at $2,350).
Our fashion find will create envy even among the roaming jungle cats. This A.L.C. Wells Dress is flawlessly complimented by its flared skirt and high-rounded rib knit neckline. You will definitely be “spotted” in this $415.80 piece!
3. Reptilian: Alexander McQueen’s $975.00 Two-Tone Python Belt channels your inner animal. The dark orchid and black hues accent the contour of the waist, clasping together with a thinner inset and highlighting your curves.
We picked our very own reptilian Keggy belts for this fashion find. The metallic, iridescent shades of black, green, pink and blue are balanced with a black, suede-like trim and covered buckle. Safari meets street smart with these adventure-inspired belts for $150.
