FashionHow to Wear Leopard Print Like a Neutral

The thing about animal print is that it never truly goes away. Sure, sometimes it feels more of the moment than others, but it always remains a fashion classic — so classic, in fact, that it’s time you started looking at leopard print like a neutral. Sure, an exotic pattern adds a sassy, sexy vibe to your look but it actually also works remarkably well mixed with other patterns and mixed in with casual staples. (Florals? Yes. With a sweatshirt? Absolutely.) So ignore your instinct to pair it with basic black and try a new, unexpected take on the wild print. Need some help getting started? Ahead, check out three ways to work the classic into your wardrobe for a fresh style update. Rawr.

Layer It:

Sure, your printed mini dress is perfect on its own but try slipping it over a lightweight turtleneck and adding your favorite denim jacket. Ultra trendy finishing touches like a red bag and sock boots take it to the next level, making for a look that’s totally Fashion Week worthy.

Do the Mashup:

Want to look put together, polished, and cool all at once? Of course you do. Sub out your basic button down for a cheeky sweatshirt, couple it with your pretty mini skirt, then seal the deal with a pair of purrfect heels. Add mirrored sunnies and a mini bag and you’re on your way to street style star status.

Double Up on Print:

Did you know that leopard and floral are basically best fashion friends? Sure, a furry coat makes a statement all on it’s own but pairing flora with your fauna strikes that just right style balance (it’s what nature intended). Finish it all off with OTK boots, a boho bucket bag, and aviators for a rockin retro vibe.

FashionMVP Trend of the Week: Metallic

If you gravitate toward anything of the shimmery persuasion, congrats: Fall 2017 is your season. Like velvet before them, metallics have transcended their regular holiday-centric role and made their way into the autumnal arena. Meaning, the time to shine is now.

From sequins to lamé to glitter and beyond, get ready to sparkle— and not just for evening, either. No, while the currently trending heavy metals do make for great date night fare, many of the offerings are equally OOTD-worthy for daytime, as well. Try pairing your pleated midi skirt with silver loafers or adding a gold slip dress under your menswear blazer to get your glitz on in a more subtle way. Whether you prefer to work a pair of sparkly earrings or a sequin top, the getting is good right now — just scroll on to shop this week’s MVP  trend ASAP.

FashionSteal Their Style: Homecoming Dresses

If you haven’t picked your homecoming dress, we’ve got you covered! Below, some of our Instagram besties show us how they would style their fave Lulus dresses for homecoming and other formal events. Get some inspiration and get shopping!

homecoming style - long sleeves

Long Sleeves

Chilly fall weather means long sleeve dresses are a must-have for casual and formal events. For homecoming, whether you go long or short, wearing a long sleeve style is a sure way to be cute and comfortable at the dance. Take your cue from twins Kenzie and Carol and Tess and Sarah and pick a dress with some of the season’s biggest trends like wrap dresses or bell sleeves. Also note how both these pairs chose long sleeve dresses that you can re-wear again and again – a major plus when picking out a homecoming dress.

blue

Shades of Blue

From deep navy to the palest periwinkle, blue is a universally flattering color, making it an easy pick for your homecoming dress. Whether you are a beach babe or a city chick, this popular color is versatile enough to fit any style. Add dainty accessories to a flowing maxi for an ethereal vibe like Molly Hogan from Trendy Chickadee or add some kicks and statement earrings like Payton Sartain of Hustle + Halcyon for a street chic look.

homecoming style - sequins

Sequins

A glam-gal favorite, sequins are a surefire way to capture everyone’s attention at the dance! Go for a patterned sequin dress like Emily Rose Hannon of @emilyrosehannon to get the full effect or add some glitz with your accessories like Deniz Selin from @lefashnmonster. Either way, extra sparkle is always in style!

homecoming style - barely there hues

Barely There Hues

Floaty formal dresses in blush, beige, cream and white are a dreamy way to inject some romantic style into your homecoming look. Play up the princess vibes like Jamie Kidd from @jamienkidd in a light peach maxi dress with lovely lace details and pearl accessories. Or go for a boho, Grecian-inspired look like Kelsey Floyd from @kelsrfloyd with lots of gold jewelry and an off-the-shoulder dress.

homecoming style - beyond basic black

Beyond Basic Black

It wouldn’t be a homecoming roundup without some picks for the best black dresses! An LBD is a solid go-to, but these pieces are bumped up with special style details! Get a little mod with O-ring hardware like Lauren Rhoden of @laurenrhoden or show off with sheer mesh details like Olia Majd from @oliamajd. Both of these LBDs show your look doesn’t have to be basic just because you wear black!
