4 Classy Animal Print Styles That Won't Make You Wild

Did you like the shimmery zebra-patterned Roberto Cavalli gown Miley Cyrus wore to the Grammys on Sunday? No? What about Nicki Minaj's head-to-toe leopard look? Too bad. From the runway to the red carpet, it appears that animal prints are here to stay.

Don't worry, not all animal prints have to be leopard, skintight, and trashy like pretty much anything worn by Snooki. As you start thinking about your spring wardrobe, consider a few subtle animal print options like these:






I love this unique take from Kensie on the animal print in pink, green, and black. The skinny belt ties it all together.


Nudes are definitely hot for spring, and this Devorah python pump from BCBGMaxAzria will make any pair of legs sizzle with a pale pink chiffon dress.


This tiered pencil skirt from bebe proves that leopard looks good in blue, too.

And this silk chiffon scarf by Diane von Furstenberg reminds me of Gwen's snow leopard print and would be the perfect accent to any khaki trench coat. 

Are you over animal prints already or ready to wear in 2011?
