We all know I love a bit of leopard print. Gone are the days when the print was thought of as trashy. It has definitely moved into the realm of a classic print. That makes me so happy as it really is a classic pattern that goes with just about anything. Here’s how to wear leopard print this winter.
Leopard Print is a Neutral
Traditional leopard print has a brown/tan base with black spots. This means if wearing bright colours isn’t for you, you can definitely stick with neutrals. A lovely brown chunky jumper with nude tights and a pair of tan boots would look great. Wearing one leopard print item with an all-black outfit will allow the pattern to stand out while still being subtle. You could always throw over a brown coat to bring out the warmer tones, too.
Wearing it with Bright Colours
If you’re a little braver and prefer to wear a touch of colour, you’re probably wondering how to wear leopard print with colour, right? Well, it couldn’t be more simple. Leopard print looks great with basically any colour. Red, of course, is a classic complement for animal print. I love to wear this teal rollneck with my leopard print skirt, but any bright colour would look amazing.
The cord leopard print skirt I bought from George at ASDA seems as if it was made for me. The shape is perfect – slightly a-line but not too much, and the belt can be tightened up to accentuate my waist. The length is perfect for me. Being petite I find that some skirts can be too long and end making me feel frumpy. This certainly doesn’t. The cord fabric helps, too. I find that thicker, heavier fabrics are more flattering on my curvy hips and bum. They tend to skim over rather than cling as some thinner materials do.
It doesn’t have to be a skirt you wear, either. Any printed item would work – trousers, a jumper, a shirt, or even a coat!
