for the love of leopard

There is nothing more eye catching and effective, than an injection of leopard print incorporated into your outfit. Whether you wear a lot of it, or just a little, this universal earthy print available in an abundance of fabrications and materials, is nothing short of gorrrrrrgeous! It proudly withstands the test of time as it travels in and out of fashion cycles every few years and I get excited whenever it pops back in to fash!

For me, I like to take it slow and wear a single piece at a time. This way your leopard friend can be your hero piece and really shine. A jacket, shirt, pair of shoes, bag, scarf or even a cracking pair of leopard print pants will really lift your outfit and take it to new heights.

When incorporating leopard into your outfit, be sure to keep similar colours in mind. For instance add black, nude and creams with either silver or gold hard wear. Of course a vibrant colour pop would look totally fabulous, however you just can’t go wrong with these earthy colour combos.

The outfit I’ve worn here is so me. Pairing this simple silk shirt with distressed denim, comfortable boots, a cami and a chunky knit allows everything to tie in nicely (and work together!).

Bags are a great way to introduce some animal print without actually wearing it. I’ve collected the above pieces over the years and I adore each and every one of them! Hmmm… This it’s time to take the Dolce out for a run, it’s been a solid 5 years.

A cool pair of leopard pants are also a great item to wear. I would wear these with a simple black top, a blazer and some killer boots.

I just adore this print and would love to see your styling ideas for leopard! Let me know in the comment box below! I just ordered a leopard print jacket from Michael Kors the other day, I’m so excited for it to arrive! Just need the weather to drop now. Boy it’s hot here in Oz.

Have a great day guys.
