On Friday, I talked about wearing leopard print shoes and demonstrated some easy ways to incorporate them into your existing wardrobe.
Let’s look at how you can make bigger statements with animal print. Sticking with the same suggestions as before, that is wearing neutral or bold solids with your leopard print, you’ll find it just as easy to wear a leopard print clothing with pieces you already have.
Perusing Nordstrom.com, Zappos.com and JCrew.com, I found the following combinations:
Leopard print blouse + red skirt (JCrew) + tall black motorcycle boot
Leopard print dress + nude heels
Leopard print trench coat + emerald green dress + charcoal pumps (with a green heel!)
Trying out a new trend is a great way to inject some fun into your style and to expand your fashion comfort zone. And it’s less daunting (and expensive) to find ways to blend the new look into your existing wardrobe. Besides, head-to-toe trend is typically not a great look (remember the Missoni lady from Friday).
Another thing to remember is, if you’re not ready to try wardrobe pieces, you could always start with leopard print accessories and ease your way into it.
