There is nothing like a pop of leopard to brighten up an outfit. I tend to favor it in accessories rather than in actual clothing items, but I like it either way. And it adds so much to even something as simple as jeans and a t-shirt.
|The leopard clutch adds just the right amount to this jeans and black blazer look|
|Even in this casual outfit of denim on denim, it gives it the punch it needs without overpowering everything else|
|And there is nothing like a great leopard pump!|
|Adorable casual leopard bag |
I love that it can go dressy or casual, all depending on what you put it with. It looks great with it's natural partner, neutrals.
|Love it with this cozy oatmeal sweater|
|Here, the almighty Valentino Rock Stud pump adds punch to an otherwise neutral outfit|
|Here she uses a leopard scarf to mix with her neutrals |
|Again, the bag adds so much to this neutral coat and scarf. This outfit wouldn't be nearly as cute if she'd used a neutral bag|
|Olivia Palermo using leopard pumps to perfection|
And of course, it looks amazing with black!
|Love, love, love a leopard flat!!|
|Here Blair Eadie uses it in the pump and the bag and it works perfectly|
|Scarf again! This time with a black dress. |
And it works beautifully with white. Which is a great way to incorporate an otherwise Fall-ish item into your summer wardrobe!
|Here it works with black and white, and a pink shoe!|
|Super summery with a white skirt|
|Great with a white trench coat (this could work for Fall or Spring)|
|And I love it with white jeans!|
But by far my absolute favorite way to use leopard is in a coat or jacket. In these cases, the coat is the outfit!
|I think this is the pin that made me run around like crazy looking for a leopard coat like this one!|
|Denim, black leather, and leopard - perfect!|
|And how cute is this?! One of my all-time favorites and a look that anyone can achieve.|
When I first read the comment that "leopard is a neutral," I wasn't all the way sure I agreed. However, I've come around! It is! It looks good with neutrals, denim, black, and white, obviously. But take a look below! It looks amazing with red and even works with green! (Love it with the green!)
|A leopard belt is a great accessory to own if you don't already|
It's especially big this Fall (though I suspect that is true every Fall!) so it's easy to find. Here are just a few pieces I found while browsing around......
There is more out there, this was just me giving you a sample. So many cute pieces! And though I already have a few leopard items, this is making me want a few "seconds"! And while we are on the subject of leopard, it can be great in interiors too (of course, that's a subject for another blog post!)
