It can be a zoo out there (two words: Monday morning), so why not embrace life’s wild moments with animal accessories?  Whether we’re on the prowl for a great night out, need some workweek ooomph or are loving some of the animal prints from Mercedez-Benz NYFW, we think the look is a great way to perk up both outfit and mood.

Worried about looking like a crazy cat lady or female Fred Flintstone?  Don’t.  We went on the hunt to find fierce, fun and practical animal accessories that don’t compromise style or the fact that we’re grown-ups.  Nothing frou-frou or cartoony here.  From rings to tech accessories, there’s something to make every lady, well, stand out from the pack.  (C’mon, you had to see that one coming).

Check out our 12 animal accessories, then get out there and show the world your wild side!
