Ask Shopbop: Animal Allure

Clockwise from the left: Gorjana feather necklace, Linda Farrow Luxe sunglasses, Elizabeth and James claw ring, Heather Hawkins shark tooth necklace, Rosegold booties.

I love animal prints but I’m a little burned out on leopard. Do you have any other suggestions for amping up the animal appeal in my wardrobe?

The easiest way to work something bold like animal prints into a look is with accessories. Accenting a simple suit or shift dress with a snakeskin-embossed heel can add a lot of personality to a look. Another easy add-on is eyewear. Fashion has long embraced leather detailing, but this season we’re seeing some really fun python frames. There’s such a ’70s-glam feel about them.  Jewelry is also a great way to bring in some wild-inspired energy to your ensemble. Molded metal scales, feathers, and talon motifs get the point across in a small, but impactful way. Consider these accessories to be an investment. Exotics can sometimes come with a steeper price point, but they will prove to be wardrobe essentials for years to come.
