As Fall approaches it may be time to change out your purse or purse accessories. Animal prints are always in style. But don’t go overboard. As with most things, less is better. That means steer clear of the trendy colors. Also, if you are carrying an animal print purse, leave the rest of your outfit neutral so that the focus is on the bag. Go ahead and splurge a little if you can, because a good quality, stylish animal print purse will be a wardrobe staple for years to come.

  1. Marcia Leopard Satchel with silver hardware from Kohl’s offers a nice contrast since most people think of gold when they think of animal print.
  2. Simple and structured can say style without a huge price tag. This one by GAL is on sale now for $39.19. Keep an eye open for those Younkers coupons!
  3. Jetset Python Embossed Tote is a sleek beauty that will be in your wardrobe forever because the pattern is so muted. Available at Nordstroms.
  4. Coach doesn’t want to be left out of the party and they won’t be with this Madison Ocelot purse from Macy’s.
  5. Add Amazon’s Animal Print Rhinestone Closure Evening Purse to your little black dress for your next special event and no one will remember that you wore the same dress last year!

It’s a jungle out there . . .
May you always look great!
