"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated."-Mohandas Gandhi
Considering Turkey Day is here, it is very likely that the silhouette of a certain gobbling fowl is dancing in your head. Designers, on the other hand, have been seeing all kinds of animal silhouettes this fall. From horses and camels to felines like panthers and cats, there seems to be an animal silhouette pattern explosion. So, if you're out shopping this Black Friday, don't be surprised if you come across the trend and spot animal shapes on everything from dresses and blouses to scarves and home decor items like pillows.
The trend has been spotted on celebs and bloggers such as the Asos pony-print blouses and dresses (the Asos shirt dress is worn above by reality star Kourtney Kardashian) while Marc Jacobs focused more on the cat family with his Panthera collection. Also pictured above in a fun feline look is blogger Jules wearing a 36point5 blouse. If you're willing to give the patterns a try, here are some noteworthy ones worth passing on. Just remember, try to stick with neutral colors and basic accessories, or the look might look too silly or kiddie.
