Spotted! Living for Leopard!
To be completely and totally honest, wearing leopard print is not the easiest trend to pull off. But this season, leopard is the hot print to wear and it’s not so difficult to wear as it may seem. In the form of an adorable little jacket or vest, leopard jazzes up any lackluster outfit and instantly adds effortless downtown cool.
Take it from master stylist Eric Daman. For hit show Gossip Girl, he dressed actress Natalie Knepp in a polished look. Her boxy trapeze coat was paired with bright magenta tights and a subtly tartan-striped skirt.
If you aren’t quite ready to walk on the wild side, test the trend with leopard printed hoop earrings, like these two options from Bongo. Pair them with a simple but subtly edgy ‘fit – think jeans, vintage concert tee and leather jacket – and tie your hair up to showcase the earrings.
If you like the idea of leopard accessories, find a little leopard box clutch to carry to a semi-formal or take note from Blair Waldorf with a leopard headband.
