Nina Garcia said it best: "The truly fashionable are always daring and never dull. They are willing to run with the leopards, cheetahs and zebras". A touch of animal print in your closet is a must have. This adventurous print gives you a chance to be bold, wild and free. For years I have shied away from something so different because I wasn't confident that I could truly pull it off. I started experimenting with it by incorporating animal print into accessories and smaller pieces such as a scarf, purse or shoes. I started small and gradually worked my way up to this dress. What I have learned over the years is that when wearing any animal print it's best to keep the rest of the outfit neutral so that the print is the focal point of the outfit and the thing that people notice first. Keeping everything else classic gives both you and your outfit a chance to roar.
