Say leopard prints and it evokes your inner “Pussycat Dolls” version. Since ages, these prints have been synonymous with sexual connotations. Powerful yet dominant, luxurious yet overtly sexual. Why on earth can’t a normal girl harmonize with leopard print with no drama? Rock it with no flash and just a mere personal fashion statement. So, let’s spin a fresh perspective on this coveted fleeting trend and flaunt it like a classic.
Mix two Prints
Don’t fret mixing leopard print with any other print. So what, it is just leopard print and treat it like one. Pairing it with another print relegates it’s whole stereotyped aura to backburner and tick it away for a chic look. Yet, skeptical about this sartorial chasm? Let my styling tips make it easier for you.
My outfit nods fervently to not only mixing of two different animal prints but also fabrics. Faux fur lends it a more luxurious appeal. Thus, I balanced it with simple brown bellies. A black leather bow adds a tough girly image. Mind it, that isn’t an oxymoron.
Note: Prefer small prints over broad ones if you are petite in frame.
Hair and Makeup
The messy hair highlight this avatar and bronze makeup serves as the key. Avoid dark eye shadows as the outfit is gravitating enough.
Leopard Print as a Casual Wear
Hey, you can wear leopard prints during day time too. Surprised? Pair a white casual tee with a flared leopard print skirt. Sounds like chalk and cheese? Trust me girl and you won’t regret. Sounds bland and not your style though? Rescue this doubt by accessorizing it with a dainty necklace, quirky earrings and a statement bracelet. Spin a twist over your tee and throw a denim jacket as per your style. Perfect for afternoon rendezvous. What say?
Leopard Print for Formal Wear
Don’t mock me for being insensitive towards corporate decorum. Kindly brush aside those norms about bloggers; attending only Coachella and red carpet events. Culture of corporate isn’t up our alley but styling work wear definitely is. A chiffon top paired with a leopard prints trouser spells sophistication. With a statement necklace and classy handbag, you can notch it’s elegance. Still skeptical? Well, bundle up your hair in a sleek bun, opt for a nude make up and snazzy boots. You are on your way to be a showstopper, girl!
Leopard Print, Stripes & Plaids
Gosh! Sounds a mess but let’s be icebreaker for once. Being hesitant for such an overtly eccentric combination is natural. Thus, balancing quirky fashion with sassy is smart mix of combinations. A casual striped tee with a plaids skirt and a leopard print coat; complete next level right?
Perfect for a date, office wear or casual meetings. All rolled in one!
Dash of Leopard Print
I completely get it, you aren’t a risk taker in realm of fashion albeit you crave for this trend quite a bit. Fret not! Add a dash of this print, may be not in the form of an outfit but shoes, handbags, scarfs or accessories. Give it a try once!
Polka Dots, Leopard Print and Leather Jacket
Voila, Such a cocktail! Let time decide it’s harmful or innocuous. Finally, we can heave a sigh of relief as we can wear polka dots without appearing too girly, leopard print without being too tacky and a biker look without biking at all.
What’s your call about this one?
So, pull out all those relegated pieces of leopard print and style it your way girl. You have held back for too long!
