I clicked over to City Chic this afternoon and became completely wrapped up in their latest collection: Animal Instincts. There are few prints sexier (and more iconically Bombshell) than leopard print. And it's one of those prints that is always in-style. Sure, it ramps up and makes the "trend" list every few seasons. But it's never wrong to pull out a great animal print.
When it's done right, animal prints are eye-catching and sultry and add immediate interest to even the most basic black top or jeans/tee shirt combo. And I think City Chic has done better than just right.
I've never been a "save the best for last" kind of girl so I'm going to start off with my absolute favorite piece- the Animal Print Kaftan. This chiffon kaftan is THE piece to get, if you're trying to decide. Toss it on over jeans and sky-high heels for an effortless night-out look. Belt it over a pencil skirt and red flats for the office. Or, throw it on over your yoga pants and tank top after a workout for instant, post-gym glam.
My second-favorite piece is the Sexy Animal Skirt. Seriously, it doesn't get easier than this. Since the skirt is curve-hugging, you can go with a structured button down or an over-sized tunic. I feel like it's the kind of skirt that will automatically make you strut a little, you know?
And finally, although the Leatherette Biker Jacket isn't technically an animal print it is inspired by animal hide - and it's gorgeous! I love the fact that this jacket is cropped, so it'll hit at the perfect spot to define curves. It features really great zipper details and would be the coolest topper to any outfit- dressy or casual. Very chic. (And only $68!!)
