Today’s styling post proves that you really can go “all-in” on leopard print (I am wearing it on my hat, dress, and shoes!) as long as you have some great solids in-between to break it up. In fact, I find this look to be quite lady-like and demure. But Leopard is also lovely as an accent to an otherwise monochromatic look or to jazz-up a simple sweater or suit at work. No matter how you incorporate it, I will say that I find Leopard just LOVES to be paired with a Ruby Red Lip. It’s as if the two belong together…
This coat was ONLY 15 BUCKS on eBay!! It’s structure reminds me of Prada and it’s two-toned and asymmetric color-blocking make it a stand-out piece. Surprisingly, it can be worn over many combinations, from a solid ensemble to a fully-printed one like this look. The black tights and over-sized black leather bow necklace (which I typically wear down my back with open-back silhouettes) also serve a solid contrast to the otherwise overly-leopard look.
The real eye-catchers are the leopard accessories. The hat was a find on eBay that the seller says belonged to her gradnmother (love a piece with a story!) and the shoes are a Zara find from a couple of years back. Almost every brand has a leopard pump these days, I think it’s nice to see leopard compliment this little bootie.
The final touches are the sophistication of the beautiful pearl earrings and vintage brooch and the rich gold-embroidery on this MCM handbag.
