What Goes With Leopard Print? (Fashion Blog Post)

Leopard is sexy.

I like love it. 

For slightly older women like myself, it's better to wear a little bit of leopard at a time. Being in your 30's and looking trashy make a bad combo.

My personal preference is to wear leopard printed accessories, like the scarf in this fashion blog post. Accessories make befitting ways to add leopard to an outfit. 

(It's new, by the way. Found it for $7 at Ross.)

Slouchy and relaxed - leopard goes casual.

These jeans are also from Ross. They cost a whopping $13.

What goes with leopard print?

After evaluating some options, I decided that simple blues -- blue top over blue skinnies -- make a nice background to lay the leopard scarf on.

Also, if you pay attention to the boots...

They have two visible stripes of snake skin on the back

It takes a courageous soul to mix animal prints. But as long as you do it demurely, you can succeed.

Check out the snake skin on the back of these boots! Wild, right?
If you take pictures indoors, standing next to windows provides best lighting.

But of course, nothing beats sun shine.

Here are other suggestions on what goes with leopard print:

1. Vibrant colors.

Anything from pink to neon orange go well with leopard. Leopard has earthy colors that match brights.

2. Distressed jeans.

Because leopard looks quite opulent, wearing it with "broken" jeans creates a subtle balance.

3. Floral.

That's right. Leopard and floral. One is tender and one is sexy. The two of them match (almost) accidentally.

4. Muted solids.

Keep it simple with basic colors like black, brown, ivory, camel, and gray.

5. Bird prints.

Right now, bird prints are huge. Wearing it with leopard adds an extra flavor of wild-on-wild.


I'm no fashion expert, but I hope the tips above helped.


I also hope you enjoyed this fashion blog post.

  16. great tips!! i definitely agree with you, i cringe whenever i see a mid-age woman wearing a full-on leopard print outfit, it looks so tacky MOST OF THE TIME, not always. wearing leopard can be tricky, it can either go good or bad, no middle. although some girls look amazing wearing alot of leopard print, i guess it really depends on how you wear them :)

    I hope you're having a beautiful day ~ XO

  17. Amazing leopard outfit, best regards.

  18. You look so pretty, love the leopard scarf! I feel the same way about leopard. I love the print, but I really only have it in my accessories (belt and shoes)!
