Never straying too far from the fashion radar, leopard, cheetah, zebra and tiger prints are ultra big this season. Along with florals, animal prints have become less of a classic women's fashion staple and more mainstream, transcending from season to season. This season though it is not just about clothing. Whilst leopard print tops, skirts,swimsuits and dresses have always been a firm favorite with the fashion world, shoe and handbag designers have experienced the call of the wild. Bags, shoes, hats, scarves and belts are covered in the leopard, zebra and pony hair prints from this season. Jimmy Choo, Manolo Blahnik and Christian Louboutin all include animal prints in their recent shoe collections and Prada, Valentino, Tod's and Dolce and Gabbana offer some great purses.

Pony Prints

A new kid on the block is the zebra print, and pony hair featured in shoes and bags. Prada, Marc Jacobs, Valentino and Jimmy Choo have pounced on the trend.

Animal Print

Shoes from boots to courts and flats to wedges, there is no escaping the jungle influence. The benefit of animal print shoes is that they are almost like black shoes completely timeless, they match basically everything, and add a subdued elegance with a trendy hint. Christian Louboutin’s Rolando Leopard Print Shoes are a classic example of how stylist animal prints can
be. Not to mention Louboutin’s “Peanuts” animal wedges, fun and funky. Black and white zebra and pony prints give a new twist to the classic (and often saturated) leopard, these shoes are stylish and trendy.
