Hot trend: Animal motifs!

A great pendant or necklace can make an outfit. Here’s how to stand out from the crowd.

We’ve all tried leopard print, crocodile leather (fake of course) and zebra stripes but that latest fashion trend puts nature in the spotlight in a whole new way. Animal motifs are all the rage in celebrity circles and you can work the look, too.

A lion head cuff or firefly necklace can add interest to an otherwise plain outfit and can also reveal a lot about your personality. “I wear an owl necklace because I think it represents wisdom,” says Jennifer, 28. “It has become my signature accessory and also my lucky charm.”

Want to get in on the animal act? Here are some of our favourite picks.

Alkemie Firefly necklace, $195

This cute gold necklace loved by Vanessa Hudgens looks great with printed dresses or over a white top. Add a structured blazer for a fun contrast. This brand also does a great snake cuff.
