Go wild with animal print

If you've got a big social occasion coming up, why not take the phrase "catwalk" literally? That's right - we're talking about leopard print.

You don't have to be a certified cougar to look great in prints inspired by big cats. Just ask Chloe Sevigny! This popular actress is known for her eccentric fashion, and her appearance at the Target Go dinner was no exception. Sevigny didn't disappoint in a leopard print dress, thigh-high stockings, blazer and black bow tie. Of course, you don't have to go quite so buck-wild with the accessories to pull off this trend. Ladies who aren't quite as, um, self-assured as Sevigny can still look great in safari prints.

When it comes to animal print, remember that a little bit goes a long way. A dress made entirely out of leopard print isn't appropriate for many occasions, so it might be best to hold off on that purchase. However, a leopard print clutch or cheetah print shoes can be the perfect complement to a trusty LBD! A skinny leopard print belt is a great way to cinch a cardigan or turn a flowy dress into a form-fitting gown.

A touch of animal print - whether it's leopard, zebra, cheetah or giraffe - is a great way to take an outfit from sober to flirty, but be careful not to overdo it.
