Leopard-print accents: show off your wild-side this season with leopard-print accented pieces likes cardigans and hats. Intimidated? Forgo the fur coat and play with accessories first.

Lace skirts: for a romantic look, lace can be worn in unlikely places like a skirt. The soft and flowy fabric will be incredible comfortable to wear and can be dressed up or down, depending on your day.
