1. Animal Print, Rayerrrr (That is how I spell the feistier version of "meow." I've discussed with people whether this is, in fact, the proper spelling, and after repeatedly acting out the sound (with claws and facial expressions), I think this is the most legit version. I also had 3 cats, now 1, but I of all people know the difference between "meow" and "rayer"... and one generally ends with a bite.)
So anyways, animal print of all types is great, in my opinion. Snake, leopard, le tigre, you name it, I love it. There's no way you don't feel a little more rambunctious when you are wearing animal print, and rambunctious is good. Like, for example, I am wearing a silk snake print shirt today, with a leather collar. Good luck to anyone in my path ;)
|So Stylish, especially with the textured jacket. Love this look. Pic taken from whowhatwear.com|
|Tracy Reese jacket from revolveclothing.com - $198 - And this is a great classic piece that you can wear for more than just the season. Also a good way to spice up work wear. PS. Can you imagine if everyone was required to wear leopard print to work?|
|This is a cheaper alternative if you are looking to test out whether you have the animal inside of you. Try it at Forever21.com for only $17.80. With black skinny cropped pants and some great heels you won't know the shirt is cheaper. #smartshopping|
2. Tomato Reds - As long as this color is kept with other muted tones, I think this is a great color. I would pair with denim, white, black, tan, you get the point. My hesitation with reds in general comes from a class I took while I interned at an ad agency like 5 years ago, where we learned from this lady about the feelings that colors evoke, and how red means "cheap." And I was wearing red that day. I was like, "thanks, bitch."
But this is a different, richer version (I made that up, but let's go with it) of the color, no really. It is a better tone in my opinion. Try it out. PS: If you like attention, this is the shade for you.
Calling all attention whores!! (hehe jk.)
|From whowhatwear.com - Love this style trouser, but I know that I tend to actually WEAR skinny pants much more than the wider leg. See below.|
|You can find these at revolveclothing.com - $253 by True Religion|
|Here is the economy version, but again - great way to try a style and if you like it, then invest in a more expensive pair. These are from asos.com - only $37.30!|
Again, if you have purchased pants/shorts etc from ASOS before and you understand the sizing, please let me know!! I ordered a pair of leather shorts from there (probably a risky choice given that leather doesn't stretch, and they were kind of expensive, and I don't know my size there so I guessed) so I will shortly find out the harsh truth, but I would love to hear some feedback! My main question - If you are say, a size 2, would you order a US 4 from ASOS?
I hope you enjoy these 2 easy ways to spice up your Spring wardrobe!
