SEPTEMBER 5, 2017:
CALL OF THE WILD
LEOPARD ANIMAL PRINTS


A counterpoint to the romantic, escapist fantasy of last week's trend but equally dramatic, classic leopard prints are coming to the fore in the broader animal print theme for Fall 2017.  

Elements of urban safari style began to emerge with olive green entering the late summer and autumn palette last year, and as more greens become prominent parts of the fashion mix in response to growing social environmental concerns and debates, this particular print speaks to the ferocious undercurrent to public discourse.

Leopards are known as fiercely independent predators that are strong, agile, and adaptive to encroaching human environments.  Not for the feint of heart, women who wear this print exude a sense of power and assertiveness.  This year look for career pieces in classically tailored styles appropriate for office wear, rather than the retro vintage vibe of kitten vamps we've seen in past seasons.  Particularly important are leopard print coats which play with female power in a very overt, and open fashion. Both classic wool overcoats and (genuine or faux) fur styles will play a role as temperatures cool.  Pussy bow blouses are a clever visual pun for work wear, and layer under more subdued solids for toned down ensembles. Neutral palettes in coffees, chocolate browns, creams, and sands are the most upscale and sophisticated worn by boardroom power players. 

Hints of the softer, fantastical trends running parallel come through in colored options in plummy purples, teals, and blues and can be good choices for less bold moments.
