STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Hot For Spots

Prints can be tricky, but they can really liven up an outfit. Unfortunately, prints and patterns go in and out of style rather quickly and aren’t always the most versatile. There are a few prints I would consider timeless, including stripes, florals and of course, leopard print.

I spotted this Fashionista rocking a black and white feline frock on the way to class. Though printed, the piece is neutral and can be worn in a variety of ways. This Fashionista opts for an anorak jacket, high socks and opaque tights to keep her warm and cozy on the way to class. You could just as easily dress the spots up for a night out with a sleek leather jacket and some heels.

Leopard print is a perfect way to experiment with patterns because it comes in just about every color, proportion and style. The pattern be found on more than just dresses, too. If you’re daring, try styling your outfit around a pair of bold animal print skinny jeans. For a subtler way to work the pattern into your wardrobe, try out some trendy leopard print sneakers or an all-purpose cross-body bag. Take some style pointers from this Fashionista and flash a peek of a different pattern, like she does with her patterned kimono, to give the look some personality. There is a way every Fashionista can rock leopard print this winter. Whether your style is classic or trendy or you prefer dresses over jeans, you can incorporate this print into your look.
