Gift the Trend: Zebra

It seems like every season the trend experts say something like, “animal prints are back!” I’m not sure how they can be “back” if they are always in, but the bottom line is that a splash of animal print will always make an outfit more fun. If she is sick of the same old leopard and cheetah or think it is a little too wild for her taste, Zebra may be the way to go. Zebra also plays well in the black & white trend, so she actually gets two trends for one! I am not a huge fan of wearing Zebra from head to toe, but a fun zebra top or zebra accessory pop can make any gal look chic. And the best part is that this trend is only going to get stronger, so any investment made now will serve her well for a good long while.

Ralph Lauren Zebra Scraf

Ralph Lauren Zebra Print Shawl: $299.99

This luxurious silk scarf is a bit of a splurge, but perfect when wanting to rock the Zebra print in a trendy, chic way and will work well as a staple in any wardrobe.

Zebra Bangle

Sequin Medium Zebra Enamel Bangle: $28.00

If you think your gift recipient would want to incorporate the zebra trend in more of a subtle way, having it on a beautiful and quality piece of jewelry, like this bangle, is the way to go.

A.J. Morgan Versailles Sunglasses

A.J. Morgan “Versailles” Sunglasses: $24.00

Any fashionista would be happy to receive a pair of these cat’s-eye shaped sunnies with this year’s hottest pattern trend.

Rafe New York Large Tote

Rafe New York Tote Extra Large Tote: $95.00 

A slouchy every day tote is taken to the next level with the bold zebra print and the pop of neon leather trim. She will be able to carry her every day essentials and do it with style.
