Leopard prints make one of the timeless trends that always look chic and glamorous. They are always there and these fascinating animal prints keep on prevailing in the new season too. With leopard printed pieces you are sure to become a real magnet for attention and enchant everyone with your luxurious look. You can wear leopard prints in dresses, blouses, accessories, footwear and many other pieces, and since they are quite common this year, here you’ll find some fresh and great ideas on wearing leopard prints in a stylish way.
Put Focus on It
If you especially strive to accentuate the print, the smart solution will be leaving the rest of your outfits more subdued. Black is great, when it comes to an elegant option. You can also combine leopard prints with red, white or bright green. Be bold, but try to balance the things. A great option of putting a high emphasis of your leopard printed pieces will be opting for a pair of shoes, a stylish bag or a sleeveless jacket in these amazing prints.
DO Mix Prints
Even though we all know the simple fashion rule, which says “don’t mix prints”, this year fashion makes an exception and enables us mixing prints as much as our fantasy goes, as this has become one of the hottest trends of the year. So you can try mixing your leopard prints with other patterns, making sure they really go nice together. Certainly there are also bad print mixes and it’s actually a matter of taste and style. If you want to not go by unnoticed and want to highlight your bold personality, make sure that one print is dominant, it’s bolder, brighter or of a larger size. Otherwise, prints will complement each other, becoming one single blend, thus looking more subtle and refined.
This year it’s all about opulence, so you can spice up your looks with catchy leopard-printed accessories. However, try not to exaggerate, as leopard prints are quite rich and catchy in themselves. Go, for instance, for chunky gold jewelry or a bold handbag in leopard prints and try to keep the things balanced.
Go for Subtlety
Conventional leopard print is kind of an eyestone, so if you want to wear the print in a fresh way, go for a leopard pattern rather than a print. It’ll shine in the light, but will still stay subtle. You can also try leopard prints in hazy subdued shades. It’s actually there, but it’s not so vivid, until you take a closer look.
Leopard prints in unconventional colors aren’t so new, however you can still break the traditional imagination of these prints and diverge from the classic brown to some Technicolor leopard. Wear it on your clothes or footwear and go bolder by incorporating the color blocks trend with these gorgeous prints.
Anyways, most times, less is better. So if you aren’t so much into a bold style and are afraid to overdo with these catchy prints, just go for some small detail in animal prints, such as statement shoes, little shoulder bag or a clutch or even just a bracelet, a belt or glamorous sunglasses.
