1.11 // Mrrrow! Leopard print is back

When you think of leopard print, you probably think back to the 80’s - maybe a tube leopard-print dress with red heels and huge hair? A leopard-print, knee-high boot?

What you may not think of are tasteful (well, not in grandma’s way) leopard-print cardigans, tame (sort of) leopard trench coats, and leopard-print leggings (worn with black boots, of course).

While not shown on the runway much, leopard print is a huge movement among fashionistas everywhere. I personally have yet to invest in a leopard piece… but only because I haven’t gotten the chance to go down to Ann Arbor in ages. And A2 has all the shops. I’ve had my eye on:

All, Forever21.

Not worn all ot once, of course - just one leopard piece per outfit, I’d say - anything else might be overwhelmingly leopardy.

How it’s worn:

Personally, I’m glad leopard is back - as long as people know how to wear it right.

Zebra is good too.

Animal print has me thinking about the African/Tribal trend from fall… maybe I’ll do a post on that next. In the meantime, our look du jour:
