Step into the Winter 21’ season and once again you will notice a splash of bold leopard print dominating the runways. Fiercer than ever and edgier in design, this bold print has the ability to completely transform your Winter wardrobe.
Simply for the fact that the eye popping colours of leopard are a breath of fresh air in the colder months, I am all for an edgy switch up to my usual black knits. In this week’s blog post, I am embracing leopard in all its glory and working this piece into my current wardrobe.
Leopard has never been hard to master quite the opposite actually, just a few rules apply such as never pairing with clashing separates. (oh and LESSS in more!) When re introducing a vintage trend into your wardrobe, be sure to team a few key pieces with your look to bring up to date. Leopard may have looked a lot different back in the 90’s to how we wear it today so be sure to work as many current pieces in your wardrobe with your outfit.
The shift style of dress is always a hall of fame for me, because I love the way it falls on the body so effortlessy yet still tailored where it needs to be. The dress I am wearing is available from new season H & M. As you will notice the shoulders are gathered perfectly and the sleeves fitted for a polished look.
If a dress is not what your wardrobe needs than look to a blouse or shirt for a hint of leopard and pair with essentials for a touch of style. When looking to add to your outfit, I almost always love to team a leather jacket with leopard print for extra warmth and style.
To keep with a slightly dressed up look, I opted to team these black suede sock boots with my dress. Another key way to style your dress is to team military boots with it for a super on trend edgy look. Be sure to pair accessories that are going to ‘pop’ with your look not be over-shadowed.
The cross body bag that I am wearing is from Marc Jacobs and features a gold chain and splashes of red fabric. The contrast of the bag and bold work effortlessly together. Remember with leopard it will always do a lot of the work for you it’s just up to you to work in the right accessories and separates to bring the look together!
