I would not say that I am huge fan of novelty knits, but I couldn’t help but be intrigued by the animal print/ jungle theme knits which were all over the Fall runway. I was particularly drawn to the David Koma piece which incorporates the color blocking trend beautifully. I normally think of sweaters as investment pieces, those high quality, less trendy pieces that I will wear for years. But honestly, when is the last time animal prints were considered “out?”

Lots of love–Michelle
