2. Stylize your look with the fashion trend of the season

This winter, fashion is having fun with prints. This year again, the animal print persists and stands out with its safari patterns of leopard, zebra, crocodile and snake. Without forgetting the new ones who add a little spice to our classic and timeless outfits. Rediscover your silhouette with the graphic effect of the houndstooth, houndstooth, carreau, tartan or again prince of wales. The choice is vast in women's fashion prints and the sales, the ideal time to juggle with this trend which is taking hold on the catwalks.

The best option to not get tired of these trendy prints is to treat yourself not to clothes but to printed accessories. Sneakers, handbags, gloves, pumps, scarves or printed hats are yours.

Style is (also) expressed in the chic detail of a pair of fancy socks, in the stylized geometry of houndstooth or in the almost timeless elegance of Scottish tartan.

But if you're not afraid (or your wallet), let loose with a tartan print dress, a long coat with a houndstooth pattern or even checked pants. Handle these strong pieces with great care to give them all the freedom to express their character.

But that’s outside the sales period.
