Animal Magnetism at ANY AGE!

I was totally inspired by the subscribers edition of the Harper's Bazaar April cover shoot with Demi Moore feeding a giraffe high atop a spiral staircase wearing a spring design by the late Alexander McQueen.  So beautiful it looks like it is straight out a child's book of fairy tales. I have always loved animal prints and they just never seem to go out of style. Sometimes wearing animal prints in real life can be tricky. Too much print can look tacky depending on your age and the style of the garment. I believe that everyone can wear animal prints. You just have to know how to wear them. A lot of it has to do with keeping accessories simple. (This includes your hairstyle) Keep reading to see how you can wear animal prints at any age!

In your 20's you can do just about anything with animal prints and get away with it. You are only young once! See how her hair is really simple and pulled back. This is what we want. The last thing any lady should do with her hair is have too much volume when wearing animal prints. Instead of looking chic it will make you look cheap. This goes for ALL AGES.  I LOVE how she is wearing no jewelry. You might just want to do a diamond stud at the most.

This dress is adorable for someone in her 30's. It is sexy and sophisticated. It is also fun and flirty!

This skirt from Talbots is fabulous for that sexy chic lady in her 40's. It is the perfect length and it will look great with a jacket in the office or with a black tee with a little ruffle detail for a more fun and relaxed look. Also, don't be afraid to put a pop of color with a skirt like this. A grass green looks so great with these neutral shades!

This animal print jersey dress by David Meister is so flattering. And nothing is more comfy than matte jersey! I love the shape it gives and again the length is perfect for a lady in her 50's. So very sexy without trying to look like she is 20. You will find this dress at Neiman Marcus

This is another jersey dress by David Meister. I love this color! And a lady in her 60's is going to need COLOR. It will POP her complexion and make her feel so alive! Again, the length is perfect for a lady in her 60's. The style of this dress is incredibly flattering. You will find this dress at Saks Fifth Avenue
