 Animal Instinct

Oriental-Lined Leopard Coat from Orlando Vintage Hello Fashion Diggers!

Go on a fashion safari to capture the look of animal prints. On the FashionDig website, you can hunt for vintage dresses, coats, bags and hats that capture the beauty of the fierce cats of the wild.

First follow the scent to Orlando Vintage and go on an expedition for a dramatic 60s leopard velvet print belted dress with thick mink cuffs and matching cowl neck and turban. Also be on the lookout for a fabulous tiger motif halter dress with matching jacket.

Brave the wild side and try a maxi adorned with leopard from Simply Stella Ranae. For those who like their animal print with a little more mystery, continue the quest in this shop to uncover a long black coat lined in leopard that really is the cat’s meow!

If your passion is handbags, seek out Mid Century Chic for leopard motif bags. Amongst other great finds you will discover a sleek faux leopard clutch that is fierce enough to hold your essentials; or try a roomy 50s hobo bag for even more storage. Top it off with a faux leopard hat that will have others pursuing you down the street asking “Where did you track that down?”

Have fun catching jungle fever!
