Ah, the animal print. You know what's great about the animal print? It's a trend that seemingly "comes back" every other year, which means each time it comes back, it rapidly disappears again. Seriously, it seems like it's always "coming back," until the public almost uniformly rejects it. Can you tell we hate animal prints? If shoulder pads make us think of Joan Collins, then animal prints make us think of her leonine sister Jackie, and honeys? That ain't good.
Still, like we always say, it's all in how it's utilized. Usually, a hint of an animal print in accessories doesn't bother us and maybe every now and then someone figures out a way to do it so that it looks fresh and interesting, but looking over these looks? We're finding it hard to pick any that we can say we love.

It just looks to us like no matter how you utilize it, it's always going to look a little cheap and tacky. That's just us, though. What do you ladies think?
