It's A Jungle Out There!

Animal prints are everywhere! The likeness of feline markings of leopard and tiger as well as zebra has long been featured on fashions world-wide. For girls, this style is fun not fierce, especially in the more whimsical combinations....visually it's something along the lines of a Pebbles meets Tinkerbell look.

For Spring/Summer 2011 these beloved prints continue to thrive in shades that resemble the animals in nature, although we are beginning to see more variations in unexpected color combinations. In mixing these exotic prints with other elements like flora patterns and ruffles, a modern twist is added to the already unique style. Our pink and brown Leopard Skirt is hemmed in tulle and absolutely adorable paired with the Dancing Fee Tee which features a screen-printed version of the same leopard pattern at a smaller scale.

The animal kingdom craze doesn’t just apply to day wear. The short PJ set and sleeveless ruffle nightgown are also available in zebra, not to mention our Zebra Pajama Set sold with matching eye mask. Animal prints are a super popular motif in swimwear this season as well. With a skirted top giving an illusion of a one-piece suite the Leopard 2-piece is perfect for even the youngest of fans as sizes range from 2T-14.   Don't forget dresses....this lovely zebra dress in shades of blue is still conservative and cute, with a pinch of flair.

So, get hunting for your very own animal prints and GO WILD!
