Leopard-ism

30 Jul

Roar. Not sure what it is about this frisky feline, but leopard print is absolutely everywhere! Jimmy Choo’s new collection is absolutely littered with leopard, Fendi has a ton of bags like this one sporting variations of the pattern, and even Hanky Panky adopted the trend with their latest prints:

What this means for us: Go for it. Embrace this trend that never seems to disappear. Bring it in with complementing accessories or a statement piece. Try pairing a leopard cuff and bag or a shoe and belt. If there is leopard in your main ensemble (ie pants, skirt, top, dress), make sure that’s the only leopard print in your outfit. Make it stand out and draw attention but try not to overdo it. It’s very easy for this trend to become trashy. So keep it classy and don’t let it become overpowering. Try a sheer top with the print or a tank like this one from New York & Co:

I also go by the rule of no shiny fabrics. especially with leopard print. Can you say synthetic?
