Trends come and go, but cats stay forever. Combine your two favorite things in life — felines and fashion — to create the epitome of all things stylish. No matter where or how the iconic symbol of the cat is worn, it is sure to accentuate the figure and highlight the subtle nature of your cat obsession. Try these simple and affordable ways to add more cat to your closet.
From Lana Del Cat’s hit, “Summertime Catnips,” get your cat pants on tonight to add some tabby to your typical trousers. Cat pants, which were one of the leading trends on Spring/Summer 2014 catwalks, come in a variety of textiles, colors and, most importantly, felines. For the perfect evening look, pair your cat pants with a bold and daring boot or heel, which will form the perfect juxtaposition of feminine and feline. To complete this ensemble, pair the pants with your favorite cat shirt and a motorcycle jacket for a sleek, edgy style.
French wording on shirts is always chic and adds a clear signal of your worldliness and intellect. Go for the simple yet stand-out “Je suis un chat,” tank, which subtly reads “I’m an edgy individual with a taste for all things fashion.” Pair this tank with skinny jeans and a cat tail for an easy, everyday look.
Make your cat eye stand out with these simple tricks. Simply close your eye and carefully line the entire upper lid in a cat-like shape. Be sure to check Pinterest for references. Then, fill in the pupil and iris on the top of your lid, making sure it is as cat-like as possible. Repeat this step for the other eye. Once complete, remember to keep your eyes shut at all times — this is the most essential step to this look. Bring a friend along with you to be sure you do not trip, fall or get hit by a taxi.
Lady MeowMeow’s hit “Appaws,” with the memorable lyrics, “Put your claws up, make them scratch,” is sure to be on the walls of all fashionista’s dorm rooms. Remember, the sharper the better. Try an industrial-grade nail file to truly get the finest point. Nicholson offers a chic Five Piece Hand File Set, which includes ergonomic handles — perfect for delicate hands. This great, affordable option is perfect for any student’s budget and a must-have beauty tool for spring. You will have to tell your friends to keep their paws off.
