Hello, December! I’m sure by now you all have noticed that leopard is the new black. But really, leopard print is quickly taking over the fashion world and even making it’s way into our home decor. Ready or not, it’s already here. So much so that leopard has become a go-to neutral for most fashionistas. I can’t say that I’m mad about that either!
I absolutely love the fact that leopard is making such a huge comeback. There was this one pair of leopard print Christian Louboutin pumps that I wanted SO bad years ago. I can’t even tell you how fast those babies sold out years ago! Every year after that I searched high and low for another pair. Hell, I would even take a used pair at that point.
I would find a pair that could work but I’d just have the webpage open for weeks and never buy them. By the time I’d actually think I was ready to make that commitment they’d be sold out! So I waited. Four years to be exact. Then, they magically appeared on the Nordstrom website. $800 for a pair of shoes is absolutely insane but…
I stewed over these shoes for YEARS and still wanted them even more than before. Instead of drooling over them online and then never actually buying them, I pulled the trigger. And guess what? They’re already sold out again.
If y’all aren’t familiar with how to shop these collages, simply click an image and it will take you to the website to shop. Don’t forget it’s gift giving season and these pieces would make amazing stocking stuffers or Christmas gifts!
Each of these pieces are more on the affordable side. I didn’t really want to add too many splurge pieces in there but there might be a couple! I specifically sourced out each and every piece in the collage above. They are pieces that I love and that would make a great impact in anyone’s wardrobe and aren’t too overwhelming.
When I’m adding a pop of leopard into a look I try and focus on one staple piece for my look. Leopard can be an amazing addition to your wardrobe but it can also make you look completely ridiculous. Remember to make it tasteful and to not go overboard. For this specific look I chose my favorite leopard heels. They add such a great pop to an otherwise very basic outfit.
Remember, KISS – Keep it simple stupid… My husband always loves to remind me of this saying and it really helps. There is no need to go overboard with such a strong print. Keep it classy and simple so people are drawn to that specific piece and not distracted by a busy outfit. Now I sound like a stylist talking…
