How to Wear Leopard Print for Beginners
If you’re like me, then you love leopard print. And if you love this trend, then you’ll be happy to hear that it’s not going anywhere next season. Animal print was allover the Fall/Winter 2019-2020 runways. I’ll be honest; it took me a while to really delve into this trend. I wanted to incorporate leopard print into my outfit without making it look tacky. By following a few pro tips, I was able to acheive this look, and you can too! Here are my best tips on how to wear leopard print for beginners:
5 EASY WAYS TO WEAR LEOPARD PRINT
1.) Wear leopard shoes or accessories – This is the perfect way to wear leopard if you want to try out this trend without making too bold of a statement. Find yourself a pair of leopard booties or a printed belt and voila! Your outfit is complete.
2.) Couple it with gold jewelry – No matter how you choose to incorporate leopard into your outfit, you should pair it with gold jewelry like a dainty necklace or chain link bracelet. The gold compliments the leopard print and looks magnifique.
3.) Pair it with all black clothing or accessories – This is the easiest way to wear the trend. Pair a leopard print skirt with a black turtleneck sweater and suede over-the-knee boots, or simply pair dressy black shorts with a leopard print blouse (like I did, in the picture above).
4.) Pair a leopard print skirt/dress/jumpsuit with neutral accessories – If you’re wearing an outfit that consists of a lot of leopard, then it’s best to stick with neutral accessories. Leopard print is bold enough by itself and you don’t want to take away from that. The neutral tones of your accessories will balance it out.
5.) Wear it with cut-off shorts or ripped boyfriend jeans – And if all else fails, pair it with cut-off shorts in the spring/summer and ripped boyfriend jeans in the fall/winter. And maybe some cute wedges or heels as well.
Pro tip: you can also combine some of these tips. For example, why not wear gold jewelry with a leopard skirt, black turtleneck sweater, black over-the-knee boots and neutral accessories?
