Animal prints are being incorporated to different clothing items and accessories. They can be bold or subtle, daring or elegant depending on what style features you at your best. Instead of choosing a designed pattern in the brown or golden color family I went for a navy leopard print. I love how the navy combined with the white and grey make this pattern complimentary to skin tones and doesn’t overwhelm my petite frame. I may not be able to camouflage myself in the wild but I sure can make a stand out fashion choice.
Incorporate the wild feline look with this petite leopard flounce-hem-shift-dress from Banana Republic (starting in size petite 00). This dress is fully lined and has a flattering fit-and-flare-effect because of the designed darts at the waist and at the back. This casual look was made complete with Banana Republic’s adjustable straw fedora in the nautral color (comes in brown, black and white too). I like how this fedora is offered in both a size s/m or l/xl and is adjustable with a hidden drawstring inside offering you the perfect fit.
Handbag: The I.N.C. straw picnic crossbody handbag is on sale from Macy’s. You can carry it by the handles or over the shoulder with the adjustable strap. If you want to be styled completely in items by Banana Republic you can check out the wicker basket bag in natural with yellow lining.
Shoes: Sam Edelman Women’s Yardley Dress Sandal in Caramel featuring lace front with tie closure.
Banana Republic has an excellent assortment of spring dresses. They frequently have sales on full price items and I was able to get this dress at 40%. Check back frequently to see what the new sale offer is.
