Add an accent with a leopard print accessory

The easiest way to start incorporating leopard print to your outfits is with accessories. Just like adding a bright pop of colour, leopard print works great as an accent and compliments neutrals. Remember to keep things simple here too by sticking to only one leopard print item! Think a leopard print belt, a purse, a scarf or a pair of earrings. One of the most subtle ways of using leopard print is with vintage-style sunnies or hair clips emulating leopard print. It’s such a classic look, many people don’t even think of it as a leopard print!

Leopard bottoms with a simple top

For a relaxed look, you can’t go wrong with a leopard print maxi skirt or cozy pants. Fitted leopard joggers go perfectly in an athleisure look. On the other hand, wide-legged leopard print pants can easily be worn in both casual and formal looks. Just pair your leopard print bottoms with a simple tank top or a jumper in winter! Complete the outfit with sandals or trainers for a casual yet fun look.
