cou.gar (/ˈko͞ogər - see also hunt, prowl, corner, pounce). Noun. A 35+ year old female who is on the "hunt" for a much younger, energetic, willing-to-do-anything male. The cougar can frequently be seen in a padded bra, cleavage exposed, propped up against a swanky bar...waiting, watching, calculating; gearing up to sink her claws into an innocent young and strapping buck who happens to cross her path. "Man is cougar's number one prey" (Urban Dictionary)
I'm of the opinion that a cougar is born, not made. My husband and I often have marital 'discussions' about cougs; He believes that the simple act of throwing on a spotted scarf means you've bought yourself a 1-way ticket to Cougarville. I, on the other paw, see it differently. From Paris to New York to Milan, chic girls everywhere understand the power of animal print. A leopard belt here or a python clutch there can spell the difference between boring and sublime. The cool-girl key? It's all about small doses (ie. no more than one stand-out piece, with very few exceptions) and of course, the right print. Oh, and if you're single and justhappen to score a hot young thing while you're at it? Bonus. Just sayin'...
