I was this close to name this post „holy cow“ and I must say, I feel a little bit guilty about it. But you have to admit: this picture practically begs for it. The name is not the only thing I should probably feel guilty about. A cowhide print? Am I serious? Believe me, I wish I wasn’t. But sometimes designer are able to do something right what you always thought to be so wrong. And then, bamm! You like something more than you are ready to admit to yourself, to anybody really.

I’m certainly not enthusiastic when it comes to any kind of print. But this china inspired print by Preen is swoon material (by the way it is from the pre-fall 2012 collection). I even love that it comes in the form of a turtleneck and not a regular blouse. Here is a question: when was the last time you saw a turtleneck which was not a cable knit? I, for once, didn’t see anything like that around and I just wonder how that can be since it looks so fantastic. Especially with a leather jacket thrown on top, even though this would make you very miserable right now (hello wintery temperatures!). Happily, it is very easy to come up with tons of styling ideas. Imagine this top with a classic black sweater, for example. One would just see a hint of print peeking out and that surely would look great. Anyway, do I need to point out that I love the picture as well? Probably not.
