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.
