If you haven’t yet, I hope I’m about to inspire you to give it a try!
It’s a BIG trend right now and it’s a print that NEVER goes out of style.
This means that whenever you wear leopard print, you’re always guaranteed to look stylish!
If you’re not yet a convert, I’m going to (hopefully!) prove to you that it can look sophisticated, feminine and incredibly cool with my 8 style secrets for wearing leopard print!
Treat leopard print like any black item in your wardrobe.
This might seem counterintuitive, considering that it’s a print, BUT adding a little leopard to any outfit just works!
If you feel a little too ‘out there’ wearing leopard print, it’s easy to tone down by wearing it with neutral shades such as taupe, khaki, and grey PLUS…
…dusky pink shades look very soft and pretty with it too!
Experiment with your lipstick!
Soft nude lips give a soft and natural, more demure look.
Bright, bold lipsticks with leopard print give a fun and playful look!
If you don’t feel confident in wearing leopard print, why not carry it in a bag?
Or add a pretty accent to your plain tee with a scarf!
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.
A beautiful blouse is such a feminine way to wear leopard print.
Wear with your jeans plus a cool trench and cross-body bag for a very on-trend preppy vibe!
The genius of leopard print is that it elevates everything else you may be wearing – it’s an instant touch of rock n roll glamour, think Debbie Harry!
For example, how about experimenting with leopard print shoes or ankle boots with an all-black outfit?
A leopard print coat faux fur coat, when worn over a simple white tee and jeans, can make your entire outfit sing!
Oh, and one last thing…
…leopard print doesn’t always have to be in the traditional brown and black shades!
Seek it out in pastels and muted down shades for a more toned down but equally stylish look!
Next time you hit the shops, give it a try and allow your style and confidence to roar!
