Leopard print roars back into fashion for fall, 2016!
So dig into the back of your closet (we know you have some!) and rescue that kitty!
Wear leopard print as a neutral against colors, or mix with your favorite denim pieces. Stand out leopard print accessories – like coats, handbags, belts and footwear – add punch to basic palettes.
Leopard print skinny jeans work for day or night when paired with a basic silk tunic and statement necklaces. Michael Kors jeans, size 6, $26; Dora Landa tunic, medium, $29; two necklaces, $8 each.
A high-waisted leopard pencil skirt is figure flattering for all shapes. A solid-colored top keeps the print from overwhelming. Chico’s denim button-down, size 3/XL, $14; Sharon Young skirt with faux leather belt, size 8, $18.
Leopard jackets three ways: for business, for play and for evening. For business, basic black slacks get a boost from a graphic black-and-white pattern (Chico’s jacket with leather sleeves, size 3/XL, $35; Chico’s pant, size 2/L-XL, $16). For play, distressed boyfriend-cut jeans get girly with a chiffon tank top and leopard-print blazer (Bullhead jeans, size 3, $14; Petra tank top, size 10, $10; Verona blazer, size large, $14; enameled choker, $10). For evening, a leather skirt ups the sexy factor for a night out (MSK jacket, size small, $16; Chia pieced leather midi skirt, size 14, $20).
Leopard goes casual with a cotton skirt, bright white shirt, denim vest and leather belt. Worthington short-sleeved, button-down shirt, size large, $8.50; Liz Claiborne denim vest, size small, $14; Briggs skirt, size 12, $12; Brighton belt, $12; necklace, $10.
Your LBD’s new best friend – a tailored leopard-print blazer. Nygard dress, size 16, $18.50; Le Suit blazer, size 14, $40; Dooney & Bourke leather handbag, $45; necklace, $10.
