FASHION WITH ERICA -- LEOPARD PRINTS


Assistant fashion editor Erica Milano joins us today to discuss one of fashion’s latest trends. -- AP


Thanks, Anastasia. Have you noticed that everywhere you turn lately, it’s leopard this and leopard that? Leopard prints are once again a sizzling fashion trend. I don’t mean real leopard fur, mind you. The world doesn’t need the demise of another glorious species. I’m talking about leopard prints. 

They’re everywhere! From couture to K-Mart. And not just for women’s fashions. Guys are wearing leopard. Kids are wearing leopard. 

You’ll see leopard print accessories on everything from handbags to umbrellas to costume jewelry. Nail salons are featuring leopard print nail designs.
Even our homes are wearing leopard. Designers have embraced the leopard print with a passion rarely seen for any other decorative print. You can now find it in everything from wallpaper to lampshades to USB jump drives.

Want to be a fashionista? Think leopard the next time you’re out shopping. You’ll be the height of fashion.

Thanks, Erica. I know I’ve seen leopard everywhere lately, too. What about you readers? Are you partial to leopard prints? Where have you seen them? Have you bought anything with a leopard print design? Let’s hear from you. Post a comment this week to be entered in the drawing for a free book from our Book Club Friday guest author. -- AP

Leopard prints aren't my style, but I do love the leopard tennis shoes !

I just fixed the seat on my exercise bike by covering it with leopard duct tape. I guess my bike is in style now.

I'm with you, Cindi. I'm not into animal prints of any kind, but I can see where a little bit might be nice as an accent -- like Kathy's duct tape!
