Leopard Prints Are Always A Good Idea
Classy and sassy, but never trashy. How To Wear Leopard Prints! I LOVE LOVE Leopard Prints
Use leopard as a tiny accent on an otherwise clean and simple outfit.
A little bit of leopard can go a long way. The simpler and more monochromatic the rest of your look, the more that touch of leopard will pop. Wear it in the form of a narrow belt to subtly draw attention to your waist, or on sunglasses or a gauzy scarf to draw the eye up toward your face.
Keep it casual with a slouchy leopard-print T-shirt.
As far as prints go, leopard is pretty sexy, so it’s a great way to add a little edge to an otherwise gender-neutral and somewhat sexless silhouette like a loose T-shirt, basic button-down, or straight-leg pant. Add an extra dose of femininity by pairing your unisex leopard piece with something skin-baring like shorts, a miniskirt, or a low-cut tank top.
Carry a leopard bag with, well, anything.
Believe it or not, leopard is a neutral. In fact, it’s three neutrals in one — black, khaki, and white — and there is just something about a leopard-print bag that feels particularly versatile. It’s the essence of je ne sais quois. It just goes with everything.
Add a leopard-print faux fur coat and a chic pair of shoes to any look.
There are few pieces of clothing more glamorous than a fur coat, but real fur is expensive (not to mention the whole I-don’t-want-to-wear-clothing-made-of-a-thousand-cuddly-carcasses thing), and faux fur can look really cheap if it’s not done right. But there is something different about leopard print faux fur. It doesn’t look real per se, but the mottled color and hazy print help give even the most basic faux fur dimension and variation that 99 percent of solid-colored faux furs just don’t have. Wear a faux fur leopard coat with everything from a dress to a pantsuit, and give your look an instant dose of high-end glamour.
Treat leopard like a neutral and mix it with other prints.
The soft, organic shapes of naturalistic leopard print look great next to more graphic prints like polka dots, stripes, and plaids. Space your prints out — one on top, one on bottom — to keep the look balanced, and layer in neutral-colored clothing and accessories to keep it from getting too busy.
Break up a flowy leopard dress with neutral accessories.
Most people, when they hear the phrase “leopard-print dress,” picture something skin-tight and, for lack of a better word, slutty. But it doesn’t have to be that way! Instead of a body-con leopard-print dress, try something loose and flowy. Layer on a belt or a jacket to break up all that print and keep the look grounded with simple accessories and flats.
