On December 1st, the Convos with Claire (@convoswithclaire) panel series held its last event of the year. For every event, Convos with Claire offers rising fashionistas the opportunity to hear advice and knowledge from industry professionals on their rise to success through conversations, brunch, cocktails, and overall…through style. This year’s dress code took a trip on the wild side with 2018’s biggest fall trend: animal print!


Let’s take a look at our guest looking fierce and fabulous in their best animal print looks:

Friends that slay together, stay together! This trio shows that red presents the perfect pop accent to any leopard look.


Dripping in Fur: Both our panelist, @bevysmith , and this beautiful guest came through fully slaying in the ultimate fur coat! Make the bold animal print even bolder with a touch of fur!

This pretty young Bombshell paired a purple hued leopard printed dress with a complementary coat. Unexpected, but cute!

It’s an all black affair! @thelearobinson was spotted in an all black fit with an crocodile-skinned dress by Keep the animal print minimalistic with solid color prints to achieve a classic, yet standout look!

Prints on Prints! The mixing of ANY prints is also a popular trend for FW18. Take a different approach like @carriepennie and mix animal print with plaid to achieve a bold and vibrant look!

Pride on the Prowl: Take notes from these lovely ladies who mixed this African headwraps with animal prints with @nrodaeyewear. Cute!


King Status: Stylist, @mickeyboooom, made sure that all eyes were on him and his fierce fit which consisted cheetah print and snakeskin topped by a fur stole and @dolcegabbana sunglasses. He is everything! Also, one of our panelist, @duckie_confetti was also sporting a cheetah fur stole! Look to them for inspiration on how to pull off several animal elements at once from prints to fur stoles!

Bold hair colors and prints: one of our very panelists, the legendary stylist @misahylton, was spotted rocking cheetah print @mcmworldwide blazer and @mcmworldwide bag all topped off by her Pretty in Pink bob hair styles! Achieve a fearless look by pairing animal print with vibrant hair color! Take notes from a legend.


Red is Power: Red has always been a symbol of strength and power amongst all women, so stylist @kimdillinger decided to make a power statement by pairing animal print with red flare pants. And let’s not forget designer, @creamxnyc, came through in the red fur coat with her animal print. Absolutely fabulous, ladies!

Fashion Bombers and Bombshells showed up and out!
