As winter rages on, there are a number of trends that the fashion world just can’t seem to get enough of, one of them being leopard print. And we get that leopard print has been around since the 70s, but it’s sticking around for a good reason. For starters, if you’re not afraid of making a statement, it’s one of the best neutrals you can have in your closet. Whether you’re looking for inspo for your next night out or for a very on-trend way to break up your predictable all-black winter ensemble, read on to see what leopard print pieces we’re coveting now.
It’s easy to stay right on trend while rocking this leopard print sock bootie. Featuring a pointed toe (which is currently one of the hottest footwear trends), this ankle boot has a just-right heel (and price) that will have you strutting with confidence.
Sure, there might be snow on the ground, and technically a little cold for a jumpsuit, but with the right styling this will be the hottest thing in your wardrobe this year. Pair with a thin, fitted turtle neck, booties, and a black faux fur jacket and you’ve got your go-to leopard print look regardless of the time of day. Once the warmer months hit, rock this baby with a leather jacket and pumps for a killer night-out look.
For the ultimate ‘it girl’ look, style a pair of leopard print pants with a pair of edgy, black boots, a vintage band tee and a leather jacket and a pair of chic sunnies. We’re getting major Vanessa Hudgens vibes with this look.
There’s something about a sheer blouse that just screams confidence. But when you have a sheer, leopard print blouse with a statement collar, now that’s a whole other story. What we love about this blouse is it can be styled with a pair of dress pants for the office or with a pair of high-waisted jeans or a leather skirt for a night on the town.
If you’re not comfortable rocking full-blown leopard print, why not try for something a little more subtle like a pair of leopard print sunnies instead? They are versatile, fun, and today’s newest tortoiseshell.
