STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: A Hint of Leopard

After having a love-hate relationship with leopard, I finally decided to love and embrace leopard print. Sometimes too much leopard is tacky but when you are wearing the right amount of leopard in your outfit, it puts a good twist on your look. This Fashionista was wearing leopard perfectly. Her leopard hat and scarf caught my attention but did not distract me from looking at what else she was wearing.  Instead of making leopard the focus of her outfit, she used leopard print as an unexpected accessory. By doing this, it did not make her ensemble seem too busy.

Since leopard is such a loud pattern already, you do not want to overdo it. Try wearing one leopard piece and then having the rest of your outfit consist of basic items that are neutral. For instance, wear a leopard pump to spice things up. Then, pair those pumps with black denim and a tan blouse to balance out the leopard print. There are even comfortable, leopard choices out there like these leopard flats and TOMS shoes (another love-hate relationship of mine). If you want to be bolder, wear a leopard knit sweater as long as you tone it down with a dark, solid scarf and/or with black leggings.

This Fashionista wore a classic black trench coat, black boots, and grey leggings with her leopard print. By pairing classic pieces with an original print, it gave her an overall chic and unique look. Opposites do attract after all. Next time your outfit seems a little dull, when in doubt, add some leopard print!
