Animal Motif Sweater Craze

Animal motif sweaters aren’t just for kids anymore. Horses, tigers and owls are emblazoning adult-size sweaters this fall. From the runways to the streets, these kitschy sweaters are having a moment dominating the style landscape.

They’re cute and silly, and juxtaposed with edgier or  tailored pieces ( like pencil skirts, leather shorts or skinny trousers) animal graphic crewnecks lend the right amount of youthful whimsy to any look. The pricey designer versions can easily be replicated with a stop at your local thrift store. If you can fit into small sizes, take a trip to the kids section at any department store. Or you can shop from this selection here of my favorite wallet-friendly animal-inspired sweaters on the web.
