Just when you thought the cast of Jersey Shore had ruined animal prints for the rest of us, the wonderful world of fashion came up with another way to pay homage to some of Mother Nature's best work. Literal animal prints are designs that use the full animal rather than just the patterns of their skin. This trend ranges from kitschy to classy and everything in between. Flip through our favorite picks to find something that suits your wild side.
Symmetry has long been considered the cardinal indicator of classic beauty, and this season it's been extended to your wardrobe. The best part about mirrored prints is that they're a bit more forgiving than your closet mirror. All-over mirror prints can create the illusion of curves where there are none, and mirrored side panels can help smooth out curves you'd rather do without. Either way, rocking this trend is sure to make you the fairest of them all.
I've heard that fashion recycles itself every 20 years. If that's true, I guess it would explain why I rocked a see-through green smiley-face backpack in the third grade, and I'm contemplating buying a see-through mint foldover clutch to carry around now. Whether it's a truly fresh idea, or the '90s coming back to haunt us, one thing is for sure: Clear accessories are happening in a big way right now. The trick to pulling off something this obnoxious is to make sure you're not showing off anything that you wouldn't want to be on display. When it comes to see-through bags, tampons, receipts, and loose change are all a big no-no. Keep it simple and classy: a pretty compact, your phone, and a wallet. And please don't stuff it to the brim. It's an accessory, not a vacuum-sealed storage bag.
