While leopard print has been ever increasing in popularity, New York Fashion Week has suddenly provided a fresh alternative: tiger print. Agyness Deyn appeared backstage at Alexander Wang's show rocking the print, while Thakoon gave the look a less literal feel in his runway show, with softer, more watercolor-inspired lines. But is tiger print really wearable?

As with any bold print, it's important to wear tiger print pieces in a way that won't overwhelm you. This means utilizing subtle or neutral accessories (particularly when wearing the orange color that tends to accompany this trend), or finding pieces (like Thakoon's) with a softer, more feminine take on tiger. Tiger print also works well on accent pieces like coats, shoes, or even sunglasses.

Here is a sample outfit incorporating tiger print:
