Designers are unleashing ferocious prints of cheetah and leopards for this fall so prepare yourself to let your inner cat go wild! I scared to say this, but I have never put on a piece of animal print as long as I have been dressing myself; however, I can’t really guarantee that fact with some of my kindergarten outfits—mother’s choice!

The line between classy and tacky is almost invisible with animal print and it makes it that much easier to go overboard. To stay in the safe zone stick to accessorizing the wild print with bags, shoes, scarves and jewelry. If you’re feisty and daring like the cats themselves, then go ahead and do the dresses and jackets!

Here are both some noticeable and discrete pieces to consider when playing with this print!
