Animal prints seem to never go out of style.
They can be seen on clothing
, bedding, curtain material and even nails. Classic animal prints include cheetah print, leopard print

. Drawing attention anywhere, these cool, fun prints make wearers appear wild, sexy and flirty. Bold fashionistas just love them. Leopard print is one of the hottest animal prints. Leopard print lingerie
, purses, watches, high heels
and bangles all give wearers a sassy look. Animal prints are really in this year.
However, mixing animal prints with each other or any other wild patterns like camouflage
can be a fashion disaster, as this makes the outfit appear mismatched or too complicated. For ladies who want an animal print to be the focus of their outfit, we suggest keeping the rest of the outfit pretty simple. Red heels
are perfect with cheetah print coats. A classic black or white belt goes well with a leopard print dress. Women, who are kind of shy about letting their wild side out, can try accessories with subtle animal prints
, such as green giraffe print bangles, leopard print watches
and zebra print headbands.

Let’s take a look to fall/winter 2010-2011 leopard print trend.
For fall/winter 2010-2011, the leopard print can be considered as being a basic element especially when it comes to coats and dresses.

For fall/winter 2010-2011, leopard prints work great on long dresses and sheer blouses and complemented by black leather. Cavalli has chosen to add some color to the leopard print using red to color it. The combination between cashmere in neutral colors or red, and a look made from a silk dress with a leopard print and a smoky eye makeup can represent a great option that can totally help you rock this trend. If you choose to wear a leopard printed shirt or blouse, match it with neutral colors, such as black, beige or white.
