I'm not talking about the monsters in the beautiful, heart-wrenching and poignant film of the same name. Here I'm referring to the ferocious Felidae family; the kings of the jungle. I think by now we can all agree that animal prints are a defiant timeless piece that just won't go away. Taking off in the '60s when Jackie Kennedy wore leopard print coats, it became a highly coveted item that nearly caused the extinction of the leopard species. No, seriously. Luckily there are similar faux leopard fur coats available so one can still get that Jackie O look without necessarily harming any innocent animals. Spot on!

In the Brit pop days of the '90s, it was the Spice Girls who walked on the wild side by being dressed head to toe in a mish-mash of animal prints. Seeing as I'm no spice girl, I went for a more refined look by balancing out this shirt (I would argue that this is actually a Jaguar print, but hey, who's nitpicking?) with black jean leggings and booties. I was tempted to go with a pair of red leather trousers instead, but we'll save that near disaster for another day. Red wall it was.
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend!
