I don't know which to rave about first: MINKPINK's done right cheetah print or Sam Edelman's never-fail sandals (...his whole collection is never-fail actually). Or maybe the fun combination of them both is what deserves the hype, with the pop of coral summer-ing up the neutral shades. I just love that these sandals were made to wear with anything, just because it's summer. They're comfortable and they're Sam Edelman, he never does wrong! Also, I'm starting to think the cheetah got it down way better than the leopard. I much prefer its simple, circular, uniform pattern rather than the leopard's rosettes. I've had people ask how to wear such a statement print and I simply suggest that the easiest thing to pair animal print with is a bright color. This will tone the print down and draw attention more to your overall outfit; the print will act complementary. Personally, I tend to add bright colors through my accessories, like these sandals, my over-blogged orange clutch, and even on my lips. But for those wary ones, give a cheetah print a chance. It's actually quite liberating.
