Leopard prints

You can't have missed it, animal prints are THE biggest trend of the year. Leopard dresses, tiger print faux fur coats: the keyword is feline. Well, this trend is far from over and will rock spring and summer this year.

How to rock the animal print trend?

Some golden eyeshadow, eyeliner and hazel coloured contact lenses for a feline look, just as intense as a leopard's stare. The rest is up to you: tiger printed jackets to rock a simple outfit, leopard skirts with a simple t-shirt and a denim jacket or just on some small accessories if you don't want to go for the full look!

If you want to give your eyes a break but stay in style, you can also choose to wear some nice glasses like the Kate Spade's Atalina, find them on Glasses Direct.
