Call Of The Wild: Wildcat Prints in Fall 2012 and How To Wear Them

This season it`s not just leopard, a great many of different wildcat prints are around, which also come in faded, bleached or altered versions. They are compatible among each other but also complement fall`s trends super well.

They work fantastic with this season`s metallics. Be it gold, bronze or rust, they go with all 'warm' hues.

Roberto Cavalli introduces an imaginative rearrangement by putting cat-prints on snake leathers.

Mixing them with black pieces is the classic choice that never fails but you may as well add some (small!) bright details, like this pink.

Wildcat prints complement fall`s trend colours orange and rust (and their metallic versions) very well.

Maxi skirts made a successful transition from summer to fall and their femininity is a great addition to the print`s wild appeal.

The softness of the winter-trend velvet enhances the print`s sensuality.

Conclusion: this season almost anything goes in mixing animal-prints. You may even add reptile- or snake skins.

Which looks & items are your favourites? Are you wearing wildcat prints this fall/winter? If so, are you bold enough to mix different prints?


  1. I love all the wildcat prints worn together. It's sort of mad but fun and chic too. It hunk I'll try it! Need to get some leopard shoes though, mine are looking a little sad.

  2. Love all these matchups!

  4. I like mixing prints if done correctly. My favorite look is the Just Cavalli look with the Viviene Westwood shoe. I love metallics especially gold and pairing animal prints with it definitely makes a bold statement.
