Jungle Fever

Just when you think animal prints are taking a back seat to newer summer trends, suddenly they’re showing up everywhere again. Here’s Cameron Diaz looking leggy as ever in sequined Pucci at the premiere of Bad Teacher yesterday. She does the right thing by keeping her accessories minimal and keeping the focus on the dress (and those legs, of course!).

Both Rosie Huntington-Whitley (above) and Lily Collins (below)  also chose jungle-inspired dresses for last week’s MTV Movie Awards, accenting their ensembles with subtle metallic accessories.

It just proves the point that this animal attraction will really stand the test of time. Rather than investing in a really expensive dress, why not pick a luxe bag in a similar print? Many of our favorites have long-lasting appeal that will look great with jeans and a t-shirt or for a night out on the town. Here’s our picks for this summer:

Jimmy Choo Leopard Saba. This is the ultimate go-to day bag that will hold all of your essentials and more. Wear it with solid colors and it acts as a neutral that elevates any outfit.

Christian Dior vintage snakeskin handbag. We are smitten with this old-school tophandle bag that just oozes ladylike glamour. It will be in your collection forever.

Valentino Zebra pony hair satchel. Another structured tophandle bag, this one can easily go from day to night.

Diamonds & Lace

Lately all the young starlets have been taking to the red carpet in peek-a-boo black lace dresses. Just in the past couple of weeks, Emma Watson stepped out in Rafael Lopez, Taylor Swift chose Jenny Packham and Kirsten Dunst wore just-off-the-runway Valentino. It’s interesting to see just how different these similar fabrics can look—Emma is sexy and sassy, Taylor is black-tie-ready, and Kirsten’s choice could go from day to night.

One thing that could tie all of these dresses together? A great pair of diamond earrings. Since lace is so intricate, I would choose a retro button or vintage style that doesn’t take away from the details of the dress. Check out our favorites below:
