This year I embraced the animal print trend with a reversible track jacket. One side is a gorgeous leopard print and the other is completely enveloped in black sequins! I actually purchased it especially for the Diana Ross concert. It was just the right amount of luxe and comfort...I'm still a guy after all. A lot of women are afraid that animal print is overwhelming or it won't go with everything, but the truth is, like most trends, it comes in a variety of different styles.
Take, for instance, this breathtaking Judith Leiber clutch. It's perfect for women that want to make a serious statement at glamorous cocktail parties and fundraiser galas. The Swarovski crystals are hand-placed to create a beautiful leopard print mosaic. Be advised, however, that it retails for an astounding $5495 at Net-a-Porter. For something a bit more reasonable, try these classic flap bags from Christian Louboutin and Lanvin. The Christian Louboutin Sweet Charity bag features a timeless shape and size, so it's ideal for those of you that are less daring. Purchase directly from Christian Louboutin for $1995. The Lanvin Happy MM shoulder bag is a bit more fun, due to the ribbon and coin detailing on the chain link handles and it's available for $2500 at Barneys New York. Style Tip: Pair animal print bags with a LBD so they can take center stage!
