Big Cat Trends for Women
For autumn/winter 2012, the runways showed us a lot of cats. The lead role was reserved for the tiger, but the leopard made quite a lot of appearances, as well. It seems like a must to have at least one cat item in your closet this 2013 season. We’re not talking little, cute Persian cats here. No ma’am, we’re rolling with the big boys! The runways were full of predators such as tigers, leopards and panthers. Tigers adorned a multitude of garments on lots of different places, ranging from a large tiger across the chest to a small tiger on the knee and everything in between. On top of that, even accessories join in the fun! You find cat prints on handbags or tiger heads used as a closure or as a charm dangling from a bracelet.
Of course, there is a plethora of options when it comes to combining one of these predator inspired-items with the other clothes in your closet. You could play it low-key and opt for some tiger accessories such as a tiger head-ring or a leopard print watch. These pieces are easy to combine and always a safe option. Moreover, accessories like these will stand the test of time so you will still get wear out of them years from now. When you are up for a risk, you could make a fashion statement in a tiger print sweater worn with jeans, or even better some black leather. You can opt for either leather pants or a leather biker jacket; both will look equally fabulous. When styling your outfit, keep in mind that the tiger print sweaters are best when they are a bit oversized and slouchy.
Classy and always chic is a leopard print shoe combined with a black outfit. You can’t go wrong with this option, and you are spot on trend! Pumps are always a good option as they will go with a business-like outfit as well as a party outfit, but this season it will be particularly hard to pass on the ankle-boot trend. So why not opt for an ankle boot in leopard print? This way you combine both trends in one item and you keep your feet warm! One last piece of advice: when it comes to heel height, all I can say is ‘the higher, the better’. Of course, here at Stylisheve.com we don’t want you to break your ankles, but sometimes an extra centimeter goes a long way…
