Hey, I’m Katy from ModlyChic and I’m guest blogging over here. Do you have a fashion passion that defines your style? You know, an item, trend or clothing type that you gravitate towards? The thing that all your friends chuckle about when you wear it again and again? For me, that’s animal print. I love it in all its permutations. I have a black and white zebra-type skirt. As well as a dress with a gray and black zebra pattern. I constantly wear a leopard print t-shirt in a dozen different ways – dressed up, dressed down, knotted, layered – whatever; and the comfortable short-sleeved sweater with a zebra head on the front.

Oh and then there is the zebra scarf from Ann Taylor that is my winter go-to accent and the over-sized purple wrap. I’ve worn the zebra tunic for years now. Last winter my favorite vest was a snow-leopard faux-fur pattern. I almost cried when my favorite leopard-print brown flats died. And there is the leopard-print dress that gets a ton of negative comments but I love it!

This top from Forever21 is another animal print piece. But at the same time it’s different. The pattern isn’t all over the shirt, it’s concentrated to the front. The sheer fabric too adds an interesting dimension; and is oh so comfortable for the warm summer months. So that’s my fashion passion. What’s yours??

Tip: Don’t be ashamed of your fashion passion. Find it, identify it, and work it!
