Five years ago I lived without any leopard print in my life. How sad I must have been. Since then I’ve discovered that leopard is a legit neutral, and can be worn with anything. It was huge on fall runways this year, so you better get familiar. Trust me, you’ll never reach for straight-up black over leopard again. For a roarin’ good outfit, try these leopard items (beware animal puns ahead):
Clutch: I can’t even tell you how much I love this one form Claire V. I’ve had it for 4 years now and use it CONSTANTLY. It’s big enough that I can fit my whole wallet, lipstick, and makeup. The good news, it’s still available! A worthwhile investment.Outfit Details: Shirt: Everlane, Clutch: Claire V.
Belt: Perhaps the easiest way to bring leopard print into your wardrobe. I love to wear it with polka dots and stripes. Mixing prints not your jam? Try one over a black slip dress to define your waist and add (ahem, animal?) magnetism.
Bomber: Spotted: This Joie bomber is a darker, toned down version of the print, if you want to be on trend but not too flashy.
Scarf: This $12 scarf from Old Navy looks way more expensive than it is. Try it wrapped around your ponytail when you’re tired of keeping your neck warm.
Coat: A cozy faux fur coat is just the ticket for my east coast and midwest friends (it will be cold soon!). This one from Asos at $100 is a total steal, and looks super soft. People may try to pet you.
Show me your looks!
