One of my favorite trends I have seen in stores this fall is the quirky, odd little animal prints that have popped up all over. I don’t mean the typical animal prints as in leopard or cheetah; I mean actual little animals like foxes, elephants and owls.
I first spotted this trend in fashion magazines like Elle and Lucky. From there, I fell in love with the little guys and kept my eyes peeled for this trend in stores. The stores I noticed that carried this trend were the (always trendy) Forever 21 and the quirky online store Modcloth, which sells this inexpensive rabbit ring and this adorable elephant ring!
I already have in my possession a rabbit print dress (like this one at Forever 21 or this from ModCloth), a few pieces of clothing with birds all over and a bright red shirt with a cityscape covering it. In the past, these articles of clothing may have received smirks and questioning faces, but not any more!
Now all of us who enjoy the little animals can rejoice. This fall, we can wear our prints with pride. I love this trend because it is so unexpected and refreshing to see cute little animals prancing on a dress instead of just the basic flowers and stripes.
It also helps to add interest to a basic black sweater and jeans or a skirt. Who doesn’t want to feel like Snow White or Sleeping Beauty with little creatures following us around every once and a while?
Bye for now!
