Cool Creatures: 20 Animal-Inspired Accessories to Inspire Your Wild Side

Yes, the leopard-print motif is here to stay, but along with this spotted trend, we're seeing a new breed of animal-inspired accessories crop up. On the Fall '12 runways, both Anna Sui and Burberry showed off a plethora of owl-infused pieces, and on the red carpet, we've seen countless iterations of the reptile pattern take hold. Case in point: Emma Stone's serpent-laden Lanvin sheath at W Magazine's Golden Globes party or Sofia Vergara's jewel-encrusted snake cuff at the New Year's Eve movie premiere. For the quirkier style set, look to ladybug earrings, elephant pendants, and retro cat brooches for a touch of cute-cum-exotic embellishing. The end goal is to take a walk on the wild side — and all you have to do is add a cool piece of jewelry to get the look. Click through below to see our editors' picks and shop your favorites.
