This summer let the jungle fever trend raise the temp of your wardrobe! Lush tropical plants and fierce animal prints serve as the inspiration for the ever-evolving jungle fever look this season.  The S/S 2013 runways of Stella McCartney, Giambattista Valli and Christian Dior were touted with touches of leopard, zebra and snake prints in combination with chic flowing fabrics and modern sophisticated accessories.  While animal prints are a huge part of this trend, leaf and jungle plant inspired prints play a very big role in the jungle fever look this season as well, so green lush leaf prints are a total do when it comes to this look.  We love the expert blend of animalistic fierce-ness and softer nature inspired elements that combine to create the ultra-chic jungle fever trend.

If you want to attempt this trend at the office or anything other place where understated is best, we think it’s best to stick with a neutral pallet and add in jungle inspired accessories. For example, a simple pair of cream wide leg trousers paired with a bright blue blouse and accented with animal print tote, would be the perfect way to rock a subtly jungle inspired ensemble. On the other hand it you’re ready to really take this trend to the chic extreme do a little jungle print mixing and matching. For example, pair a leopard print flowy dress with a chic snakeskin printed clutch and nude heels. The nature color pallet combined with two animal inspired prints really drives home the jungle feel of this look.
