Have You Heard? Leopard Print Is The New Black.

by christinamdick

According to this article, leopard print is the new black, and I’m OK with it.  As you can see, I’ve had an appreciation for leopard print from a young age.

Thankfully I’ve learned to tone it down a bit. I now incorporate leopard into my style with a little more subtlety. I choose these leopard flats (from Banana Republic outlet) or this J. Crew phone case, so I look a little less like Fran Drescher in The Nanny.

I don’t know if you can tell from the picture but the phone case actually has a faux fur texture!

I love this look from Pinterest. I’ve wanted one of these calf hair clutches ever since I saw this one on cupcakes and cashmere.  I found this one from etsy and this one from J. Crew. Do any of you have a recommendation either way?

I love how this trench coat just has the tiniest leopard detail.

For a bolder look, how fun are these leopard pants? I actually picked up a pair of leopard leggings at Marshall’s but I haven’t had the courage to wear them out yet.

I think this leopard scarf (Thanks for teaching me the difference between a snood, stole and scarf, Sydney!) with all black looks super chic.

Finally, I love the plaid paired with leopard here, but I’ve never tried to wear these patterns together. Plaid seems to also be super in right now, but the only plaid I have is this, which I don’t think would go with leopard very well.   Also, I once ordered leopard booties because they looked adorable online but they were terrible in person. Some things are fun to look at but not for me, I guess. What are your favorite ways to wear leopard?
