During my recent trip to New York City, I was surprised by the fact that most of the window displays were adorned with some sort of animal print. It was leopard this, leopard that and this was one trend that I could totally be on board with.
I’ve always been a fan of animal prints and exotic looking pieces as I felt that it really brought out your fun, exciting personality, especially in the work place when your wardrobe may not be your everyday “garb”.
Whether it’s the nail polish I’m wearing (Hello Leopard Print Nail Polish Strips!) or the cute, zebra ballet flats that I’ve chosen to dress up a certain black dress, there is no way to go wrong with exotic pieces.
I decided to expand my wardrobe as I was in desperate need of a few up-to-date pieces. I headed down to Kohl’s to see what I can find. Jackpot! It was my lucky day.
I was surprised to find that most of the items I chose were on sale which always makes for a good time. These were some great brands too, which made my purchases that much more exciting.
I decided to highlight some of this season’s exotic pieces below. These pieces would be great mixed and matched with your current wardrobe.
1. Apt. 9® Tina Leopard Woven Straw Convertible Cross-Body Clutch
sale $29.40 original $49.00
The best thing about this clutch is the fact that it can highlight pretty much any black outfit. Black dress? No problem. Jeans and a black shirt? Cute. This clutch is great quality and I loved the mix and match of colors. Carry this handbag as a clutch or shoulder bag to almost any event for that extra bit of fashion you desire.
The next item is one that’s pretty much a favorite for most women. The Maxi Dress. The easy flowing, not too tight, can wear all day and be comfortable… dress.
2. Apt. 9® Cheetah Empire Maxi Dress
sale $34.00 original $68.00
This dress is incredibly comfortable. The Cheetah print and geometric trim give you an exotic, eye-catching combination. I would recommended pairing this women’s maxi dress with strappy sandals.
3. Jennifer Lopez Platform Wedge Sandals
sale $47.99 original $79.99
As far as shoes go, brassy tones work well with leopard print. I would suggest these shoes by the Jennifer Lopez collection as a go-to for any exotic piece.
The strappy upper and cork-patterned heel give these women’s wedges shimmering style.
