Style Advice of the Week

We’ve seen leopard print pop up everywhere from high fashion to street fashion. Fashionistas are finding anything they can that’s covered in leopard print, whether it’s a pair of heels or a faux fur jacket. We just can’t get enough of it. It’s the perfect way to show off your wild side while still keeping your look chic and stylish.

When wearing leopard print as one of the main pieces of your outfit, be sure to wear it with a solid color to balance out your look. For example, if you’re wearing a leopard print top, choose a solid pair of pants. They don’t necessarily have to be jeans or a pair of black pants. If you want to spice up your outfit even more, try pairing your printed top with colored pants. I’m personally a big fan of incorporating bright colored accents into any leopard print ensemble. This week’s Fashionista is a perfect example of how to incorporate this fun print into your look.

I found this Fashionista at a men’s basketball game while she was interning for the Sports Marketing Department at Virginia Tech. She’s wearing a leopard print, high-waisted pencil skirt, black tights and a solid black top. She adds some color to her ensemble with a maroon cardigan. To finish off the outfit, she wears leather pointed-toe heels. This ensemble is a great for any time you have to dress in casual business wear.

If wearing leopard print clothing seems overwhelming, try accessorizing with leopard print. Wear a leopard print clutch or a pair of leopard print heels to show off your wild side. For more tips on wearing leopard print, check out this post by a Style Guru at the Univeristy of Mississippi.
