It’s getting wild over here because today we’re chatting about ANIMAL PRINTS! This is a trend, like polka dots, that I am so happy is back in style. Animal prints can get a bad rap sometimes, especially leopard print, and I’ve definitely seen it go overboard or too cheap-looking. But I love the classic styling of animal prints and I think it can actually look quite feminine. Today I’m sharing some tips on how to style leopard print for fall, as well as some ideas to incorporate it into your wardrobe in a more subtle way. Whether you’re completely ready to embrace the animal print trend, or you just want to test it out, hopefully there’s some good inspiration for you in this post! Are you ready to wear leopard print?
A Classic Way to Wear Leopard Print
Choosing the right animal print dress makes all the difference. For example, consider a bodycon leopard print dress and then a dress like this one. While I won’t judge your preference, a classic wrap silhouette is stylish and timeless. I love this style because it’s one you could wear for years to come, to the office, to drinks with the girls, to a museum opening, for traveling in Europe. It just works! Some of my favorite details about this dress are the midi length and the draped skirt that’s perfect for twirling!
If you’re not quite sure you can pull off a leopard print dress, start small! Try pairing these leopard print heels with a pair of jeans and a white blouse. So chic and French-looking! Or add this leopard print belt to a black dress. It will give you just a hint of the trend without feeling overpowered by it. I have a feeling you’ll start small though, and then be ready for a leopard print dress. That’s what happened to me. Remember these heels I wore all the time? Here they are again! Or this leopard print belt? Both became so easy to work into my wardrobe.
