Life in the city can be a jungle sometimes. NYC-based designer Leila Shams is well aware of this, as seen in her mash-up of sleek womenswear with a hint of animal instinct. Though known for her wild animal prints, like her infamous baby alligator dress, Leila tones things down just a touch for pre-fall. The collection features mix of fancy but easygoing dresses, from lacy shirt-dresses to tapestry sequined shifts, with splashes of toned-up cheetah prints. Leila has also nailed our favorite all-purpose in a single look: raggedy jeans, a gauzy tee-shirt, sculpted blazer and heels. Pretty much our go-to get up for an evening out!
