This season, fall is no longer just about neutrals or dark colors. I spotted this Fashionista rocking a very popular trend this season, the animal print, with a blouse and a tote bag. Animal prints are taking over the runways with designers like Louis Vuitton and Prada featuring everything from scarves to shoes in leopard and snakeskin. From lavish gowns to blouses and belts to handbags, animal prints are everywhere this fall, and Fashionistas shouldn’t be afraid to get a little wild with them, especially leopard!

CollegeFashionista: Tell me about your outfit.
Megan Norgart: I’m wearing an animal print blouse from H&M, a vintage sweater and leggings. I’m also wearing a leopard bag. I like to mix patterns so I figure it would work with animal prints too!
CF: If you could raid anyone’s closet, who would it be?
MN: I love Blake Lively’s style. She isn’t afraid of color and fun prints and I just love all of her outfits as Serena on Gossip Girl.
CF: What is your favorite store and why?
MN: I like Urban Outfitters for more everyday clothes like sweaters and tops and then I like Akira for fun dresses and skirts. They always have things in bright colors, fun prints or sequins.
How To: With an array of animal print clothes and accessories available this season, emulating this Fashionista’s ensemble can be simple. A great store for any Fashionista get to her leopard fix is J.Crew. The print looks great on a blouse, or try sporting a leopard belt or clutch. For shoes, Steve Madden has a great variety of leopard shoes, from wedges and flats to sandals. No matter what you choose, animal print looks fabulous from head to toe!
