You’ve heard it all about this print. It’s everywhere this season. Some are calling leopard the new black while others are calling it the new must-have neutral. Leopard definitely makes a statement regardless of what you’re calling it. There are lots of ways to style it whether you’re looking to make a bold statement or incorporate the pattern in a more subtle way. Here are 5 ways to wear leopard print this fall.
The matching suit trend is big this fall. It’s only natural that we’d see these two trends come together to make a huge statement. This style isn’t for the faint of heart. If you’re willing to go bold, you won’t regret it. I felt like a million bucks in this suit. Since it is such a strong look, just remember to keep the rest of the look simple. Let the suit do the talking. You can also follow some of the styling tips in the matching suit trend post.
Dresses & Skirts
The combination of this print with the feminine styling of a skirt or dress is a match made in heaven. You can see how I wore this print on a skirt here. This print can take a traditional cut dress and turn it into something a little more special. I also love this print for a fun date night.
I love this pattern on a cozy knit or a great blouse. You can pair with jeans or a skirt depending on the look you’re going for. This is truly a pattern that can be dressed up or down despite its commanding nature. The style of the top will dictate what pairs best but there are tons of options out there right now.
Looking for a more subtle way to incorporate leopard into your look? Accessories are the perfect way to do just that. You can go as subtle as you want here with a pair of earrings or a watch. You can also wear an oversized scarf with a solid print coat. Experiment with the dimensions to create the desired level of impact.
Shoes are a great way to wear leopard without a ton of commitment. They add a little something extra to an outfit. There are options in flats, pumps and even boots. The print on boots gives them a fun edge and takes away from the sweetness of a traditional ballet flat. Wearing leopard print shoes is subtle enough to be workwear appropriate too. It’s a fun break from the traditional colors and patterns that you normally see.
This is one of my favorite prints to wear right now. What’s your favorite way to wear leopard?
