Animal prints for fall 2013

Animal prints are hot for fall 2013. Of course, animal prints are always hot for the fall season. Although that statement reigns true, designers always find a way to tweak the popular, cool weather print, and make it fresh for the new season.

For fall 2013, animal prints are being freshened up. Gone are the days of the platform pump. This means for fall 2013, animal print pumps offer a flat or “single” sole as well as a thin 3”-4” heel and pointed toe. No almond, round or square toes please!

In addition to classic pointed toe pumps, animal prints are color blocked on handbags with black or red for the fall 2013 season. The ultimate way to wear animal prints on a handbag is on a two handle satchel color blocked with black. Look for this style to sell out fast this fall!

Dresses and tops are another way to wear animal prints for fall 2013. Look for full animal prints, long sleeves and knee length dresses with a slim silhouette; or long sleeve tops with a body conscious, not tight, silhouette.

Animal prints are also being taken away from their natural color palette and being shown in alternate hues. Prints such as leopard are being shown in shades of burgundy, green, black and black/white. This is a modern, updated way to wear animal prints which takes them out of their natural habitat and onto city streets.
