Kohl’s is featuring several of the hot spring trends on their website and in stores, which makes shopping those trends particularly easy. I took myself on a spring shopping trip over to my local Kohl’s store to try out the exotic trend, which focuses on animal prints.
To my delight, along with plenty of fun and bold exotic fashion items, Kohl’s also had a number of items that added a new twist to the exotic look, such as the ELLE blouse that I feature here, which has a snake skin print, yet is designed with a soft focus through roushing and ruffles in a delicate pink color. Being rather fond of pastels in spring I was particularly drawn to this look. Added to the blouse is a light and comfortable Apt. 9 sweater, and my favorite shopping find of the day, a silver Jennifer Lopez collection clutch handbag with a delicate snake skin pattern.
Let me say again just how much I love this bag! Here is a closer look. The quality of the bag is outstanding, and it really adds interest to the outfit. I can carry this with just about anything as well. It fits well as a casual accessory in the manner that I use it here, but I have also already carried it out to dinner and the theater with a more formal dress. Also pictured are an Apt. 9 snake skin pattern bracelet and ring that I rather liked. Kohls always offers a good value for your money, and I felt that was particularly true of the accessories that I purchased.
I should add that shopping for the look was a breeze. Kohl’s does a good job with their store layout, arranging items by look and designer, making visualizing and choosing items easy. Since I love the ELLE brand, both for its fun and unique looks, and for its particularly good quality, I went there first, and then found more items quickly and easily to add to my look.
The overall effect of this outfit is that it allows a way to play with several trends at once. I liked how I could pair up a light spring pastel look with an exotic trend look through a pop of snake skin in the the blouse and the bag. I’m wearing the look here with jeans for an everyday casual look, but this same blouse and sweater could be paired with nicer pants for a work outfit, or with a flowing skirt for a dressier spring look. Here is another view of it.
For those of you who desire a more traditional exotic look, such as animal prints in brown and black, Kohl’s had plenty of that too. In particular, I saw some great items from Dana Buchman, Daisy Fuentes, and the Jennifer Lopez collection. I put together a second outfit featuring a more traditional exotic look that you can see featured over on Girl Gloss.
