Look Magazine in the UK held a fashion show during fashion week that showcased some widely known (like H&M) and lesser known (like Warehouse) designers. These were my favorites!
The look in this runway photo is from French Connection. I love the great structure in the shoulders of this sequin dress. It's flashy but simple and not too over-the-top.
This leather dress from Oasis is so cute with its one shoulder design and loose(er) fit (more flattering than skin-tight leather). I absolutely love it paired with the booties! Its clean, plain, simple, but the leather gives it a little kick.
I am dying over this gorgeous Warehouse dress! It looks so effortless and I love the print (it reminds of acid wash)! I love it too for its unique draping and (what I imagine would be) flattering fit.

P.S. I was getting bored of my header so I changed it. Who knows how long this one will stay up...
The key to pulling off the trend for everyday is choosing one piece to wear in animal print and keeping the rest of the outfit simple with clean lines. Here's a little collection of recent ways people have worn/styled the trend (with a little inspiration mixed in):

These shoes definitely make a statement! I love 'em.
Sound off! Tell me what you think about the animal print trend in the comments below! How will you rock it for fall/winter?

[i've got a lust for life]
This outfit is like one walking trend report. There is the cape which we saw everywhere on the fall runways. Then there's the olive green color of the cape which is an echo of last years military trend and this years neutral trend. And the pop of animal print in the scarf is so hot this season. Then finally you have the lace up/fold over booties which everyone has been raving about (even though I am not exactly a fan).
I love this Rick Owens cardigan because its chunky without being shapeless.
I love the way she paired it with these leather leggings. So cute!
A little inspiration:

These two looks are from Julian Louie's Fall 2010 collection. The collection is mostly simple shapes with little embellishments and texture changes here and there.
How cool are these wedges? Julian Louie designed them (with the help of Aldo) for his Spring 2011 collection. I love the ikat print!

And from her inspiration... a blazer with amazing construction! I absolutely love it. It's the type of thing that would be born from a collaboration between Lanvin and Chloe.
Speaking of Lanvin, they are collaborating with H&M on a collection that debutes in 51 days! How cool is that! I can't wait to check it out in stores.
