According to a recent issue of VOGUE,“Leopard Print Is Fall’s Most Powerful Trend.” Of course, leopard is a look that really never entirely goes away.
Instead, it simply waxes and wanes in popularity – from a sleek Anne Bancroft in The Graduate, to a spandex-clad, iconic 80’s rocker, to more recent incarnations.
And, this season, one beautiful leopard piece will instantly update your look. Pair leopard print pumps with your tired LBD for a quick refresh. Grab a leopard bag for the weekend. Try a slim leopard skirt with a traditional jacket or cardigan. Or, go for broke and add a leopard coat over just about anything.
How to best wear the leopard print trend?
The key to wearing leopard successfully (without looking like a Real Housewives of Anywhere) is to use restraint. Leopard works best as an accent. Bags, shoes, belts, jewelry, sunglasses, and scarves are all great options.
For the brave, a larger piece, like a dress, skirt, jeans, or coat can be worn in combination with solids. And, add black. Lots and lots of black.
Careful fabric selection is also crucial. For a leopard print (or really any print) high quality fabric is essential. Whereas you might be able to get away with an bargain piece in solid black, a leopard print done in an inexpensive fabric instantly reads as cheap.
Above are a few of my favorites for the season. Will you rock the leopard look this fall? Let me know!
