Animal print pieces don’t have to be loud and obnoxious. If done properly, they can help break up a tone on tone outfit. Alexander McQueen’s snakeskin-effect belt is a truly versatile piece that can elevate any look, whether you’re wearing casual jeans, a dress or a blazer. Try wrapping this piece around a fitted jacket and finish the look with a pair of tailored flared pants.

Unlike the film The Lion King, python is the rightful ruler of the animal kingdom this season. Fluid silk makes this blouse feel like a second skin, so comfortable and luxurious you won't want to shed it. Burgundy trims, on the other hand, give the piece edginess without compromising its versatility. Style this blouse with similar tones and patterns, like with this Chloe bucket bag.

Tom Ford's take on leopard is anything but conventional, as shown on this calf hair finish tote bag. The “Alix” bag makes a statement, but does so in a surprisingly subtle way. You can take it with you both to the office or to your next appointment for the best manicure in town.
