Another leopard print essential? Yes.
This time I am thinking about the shirt.
A leopard print shirt is one of the most practical pieces a wardrobe can include. While the print and the effect is exotic, a blouse in an animal print really gives great bang for your buck.
I am often looking for clothing not only for its practical work but also to make me feel good about myself. Yes, it’s true, we need to have it all happening internally or nothing will work but if the exterior feels right at the same time, it is a winning combination. A leopard print top is one of those pieces to elevate an outfit and lift a mood.
A blouse is less challenging to wear than a dress in some ways. I suppose if the print feels “too much” it is a way of wearing it, without wearing it entirely. I am a fan of the print dress but I do understand it is not for everyone. The coat on the other hand is a different matter.
How to wear the leopard blouse?
I mostly wear my leopard print tops with black. When something works why change it? Leopard print and black is a wonderful combination and has been a classic since forever. When I think of leopard print in the fashionista sense my thoughts turn to Yves Saint Laurent, where the print and black were often paired together.
leopard blouse + cigarette leg trousers + black pumps = can’t go wrong
I see leopard worn with beige or khaki and this is a great combination for summer. It is less striking and for some reason the light accessory makes the leopard appear more casual, but it works. This is when a leopard print tee, camisole or cashmere comes into play.
leopard print top + cargo style pants + sneakers = weekend wonderful
Have you tried leopard print and red?
leopard shirt + black pencil skirt + red lipstick = bowl them over
A leopard might not change his spots, but we can ;) xv
