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.
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.
