Rawr! It’s leopard print time. Leopard is one of the best prints because it’s universal from season to season. It also comes in so many different separates, dresses, and accessories. A leopard print something is an absolute must-have for all the style-conscious out there.
But this fun print, while amazing in so many fabulous ways, can be a quite intimidating to pull off. Because no matter how big or small your leopard clothing or accessory is, it makes a big statement that draws a lot of attention. Here’s your guide to wearing leopard like a pro!
Don’t be shy:
Yes, leopard is bold and exciting. But that doesn’t mean the rest of your outfit has to be plain and boring! Spice it up a little bit. If you’re wearing a leopard coat, pair it with some metallic shoes for the ultimate stand-out look.
Mix and match:
Wear leopard with leopard! If you have multiple amazing pieces in your rotation, put them together—just make sure the second piece is small and sublet, like a leopard loafer with a leopard dress. Or a leopard print bag paired with a leopard top. You can also pair leopard print with other prints, like a blue and white pinstripes, or black and white stripes.
Add a pop of color:
Some colors go swimmingly with leopard print when done right, but the boldness and brightness it depends on what suits your style. A soft pink or light blue, navy, and classy red or purple can add some extra interested to a sophisticated look featuring a leopard print. Just makes sure you don’t add too much, or the leopard print will get lost in the outfit!
Stay (mostly) neutral:
If minimal style is more your jam, leopard is actually perfect for you. It adds a surprising element to your rotation, and is great for those days where you just want to spice it up a little bit. With any leopard clothes or accessories (see my post here), you can stay true to your aesthetic and let the leopard print pop by sticking to a basic, monochrome look in black, white, camel, or cream.
