Leopard print has always been one of my favourite trends for fall – and it’s back in full-force this year.
It is however one of those trends that can be really intimidating for a lot of people. This was something that a few of my blogger friends and I were chatting about, so we decided to team up and each show a different way to incorporate it into your fall wardrobe this year!
1. Make a subtle statement with leopard print shoes
I’ve always been a huge fan of statement accessories – be it a necklace, statement earrings or a loud shoe. Statement accessories are a great way to experiment with trends that may be out of your comfort zone, and for many people animal prints can be a little intimidating. What I love about these leopard print boots is that they are so incredibly easy to dress up or dress down. You can wear them with virtually anything, like jeans and an oversized sweater for a more casual look like I did here. These boots also look great with a dress or skirt and some tights for a dressier look, or with black leather leggings like I did in this post from a few years ago.
2. Try swapping out your jeans for some leopard print bottoms
“I love incorporating prints into my fall wardrobe, and leopard print is the perfect way to spice things up while staying on trend. I decided to style this leopard print skirt from Forever 21. I love this piece because this particular print is subtle and great for everyday wear. I paired the skirt with a knit black sweater and lace-up suede booties. I accessorized my outfit with polka dot tights and rose gold jewelry for a cohesive and warm look.” – Brittany from brittanyabraham.com.
3. Opt for a classic fall accessory – a leopard print scarf
“I am usually the type of girl to stick to solid colors or very simple prints like stripes or polka dots. So when I saw that leopard was going to be a big trend this season I had to think of ways that I could incorporate the print into my wardrobe. I ended up buying this fabulous scarf and pointed flats. I found that I could style this scarf with many different outfits. It goes perfectly with a long sleeve tee, jeans, and flats or a cute sweater dress and boots. You can mix the leopard print with other patterns but I choose to wear it as the only printed piece so that I don’t overwhelm my outfit. The scarf works perfectly against fall tones and neutral colors.” – Lindsey from www.cozystylist.com.
4. Make a bold statement with a leopard print jacket
“A faux fur leopard print coat adds a bit of luxuriousness to any outfit… plus it’s really warm! Normally, I’m not afraid to mix prints together but, for this outfit, I let the coat be the statement piece and chose a neutral palette for the rest of the outfit. The great thing about this look is that you can easily dress it down, by wearing some chunky sneakers or some leather Chelsea boots, if you’re wanting to go more casual.” – Hanna from hannahgladwin.com.
5. Go all-in with a leopard print dress
“I’m a 90s gal through and through, so when animal print came back into fashion, I immediately picked up literally everything in leopard print. My favorite find?! This ASOS dress that is perfect for nearly every occasion! I’m always running late in the morning, so a dress is my perfect go-to outfit. With this piece, you can easily dress it down –like I’ve done here– with a pair of Vans. If it’s chilly wear you live, black booties and a nice leather jacket give it a bit of an edge. Headed somewhere a bit fancy? Throw on a pair of heels and you’e got yourself a sexy drape neck dress. And, because of the leopard print, there’s a little pop of that extra something!” – Michelle from dressingwithstyle-s.com.
