In fashion, the mention of the word “animal” often triggers vivid images of fox fur shrugs and loud leopard prints. This season however, we’re seeing a refreshing new spin on animal inspirations as they move to new territories—places we wish real animals would never dare go to.

Animal-shaped accessories are taking over women’s necks, ears, wrists and rings for a wild accessory adventure. From exotic iguanas to wild tigers, designers have indeed pushed the limits of their wild imaginations to create stylish accessories inspired by the animal kingdom’s most fashionable herd.
