How to Wear Animal Prints


One of the easiest ways to style animal prints is to start with something black, whether it's a killer pair of black skinnies, your new black booties or a black chunky knit sweater..Any of these would be a perfect jumping off point from which to style a look featuring my favorite animal print...leopard! It's hard to go wrong when putting black and leopard together.

If you stayed at my house for a month, I'd be willing to bet that you would see me sneak leopard into at least a few of my looks each week! My love for leopard really knows no bounds and it's an addiction I'm totally cool with having. Haha! The majority of my leopard pieces can be found in accessory form, but a leopard blouse, skirt and even a leopard print vest are floating around in my closet too.

I know not everyone uses leopard as a neutral look I do, but there's no reason you can't fit more of it into your wardrobe! I feel compelled to pick up a few new leopard pieces each season because I've found them to be so versatile as I can dress my leopard goodies up or down with ease. They can work in a smokin' date night look, as well as in a laid back daytime look.

If you're going the date night route, I suggest a pair of leopard print pumps. They're super sexy and look oh so hot with a LBD or even a slouchy sweater and skinnies. I know I'm about to show my age here, but there is something I still love about a big old sweater falling off one shoulder, but I digress...In fact, there are countless ways you can style a relaxed sweater. Throw it on with a pair of killer booties and a leopard cross-body bag for an edgier ensemble!

Laid Back Animal Prints

As far as a casual look goes, leopard ballet flats are uber comfy, yet so much more fun than sneaks! The next time you have to embark on a weekend errand running jaunt, don a touch of leopard and you'll feel so much more chic. Just sayin'!

So, how do you wear your animal prints lovelies?
