Leopard isn’t just playing the role of “chic accent” this Fall…it’s splashed on everything from trenches to dresses to denim. Depending on the layout and coloring, this print can be easy to wear and virtually flattering on anyone. But, worn incorrectly, it can also be your worst enemy… Follow these tips to stay a fashion star, not fall to fashion victim:
1. Subtly is key when choosing a statement piece in this print. It only takes one wrong piece to bring your look from chic to cheap. Solid separates are always a safe bet for pairing.
2. Add a sleek accessory like an envelope clutch, statement earring and strappy sandal. These accessories can ”up” your style factor for an effortlessly chic night out. This look can easily be worn for day by swapping a Fall essential ankle boot, like this staple from ShoeMint.
3. Easily transition your favorite leopard piece into Fall by pairing it with rich deep hues and jewel tones. Just make sure to keep it simple…one piece of your outfit should be leopard print, one piece color, and the rest neutral/basic. Remember…less is more.
