Hi Ladies!! My name is Eboni, and I’m coming to y’all from my blog, The Fashionista Next Door. I am so honored to be guest posting while Mimi is away…and I thought it would be fun to talk about one of my FAVORITE things – LEOPARD PRINT! Lol! My readers already know I consider leopard print to be a neutral. And to prove it, I thought I’d share a variety of looks from my blog’s archives to demonstrate my point. Hopefully, if you don’t have a closet full of leopard print accessories already, you’ll consider adding a few after you read this post…I promise, they’ll change your life. (okay, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration. Hehe!)
The Leopard Print Scarf
A leopard print scarf is sure to punch up any look…especially those comprised of casual fabrics, basic silhouettes, or subdued color palettes. And of course, leopard always look stunning paired back to solid bright colors as well…and for the daring among us, try a little print mixing by pairing a leopard scarf with polka dots or stripes.
The Leopard Belt
If you only have ONE leopard print item in your entire wardrobe, I’d say get a belt (although I think it is actually a three way tie with a leopard shoe and a leopard bag…depends on how often you wear belts, I guess…plus a skinnier belt make a smaller statement than the other two if you’re not as big on the print). The thing about a leopard print belt is it goes with all your shoes…I don’t necessarily have belts to match every color shoe in my closet, so when all else fails, usually my leopard belt does the trick! Remember, leopard is a neutral.
