How to Wear Leopard Prints

Dereon Beige Leopard Print Drape-Front Halter TopIf you feel like you’re seeing spots this season, you may be right. One of the hottest looks for 2009 comes straight from the woodlands of Africa in the form of stylish leopard print fashions. Leopard prints can add a touch of the wild to your winter and spring wardrobe this season. There’s no quicker way to enhance the look of basic black than by adding a leopard print accessory such as a long leopard patterned scarf. Here’s how to use leopard print to work magic on your wardrobe this year.

Although some people feel a little intimidated by leopard prints because they make such a bold statement, there’s no reason to shy away from this look. While a leopard print dress may not be for everyone, there are a variety of ways to add the chic look of leopard without overpowering your figure or your wallet.

If a leopard dress or skirt is too strong of a statement for your taste, why not dress up a black knit top and pants with a dramatic leopard scarf and team it with a roomy leather tote bag or purse? Don’t forget about leopard print shoes and belts. These are subtle ways to make a big fashion statement with the dramatic look of leopard.

If you’re feeling bolder, invest in a pretty leopard skin silk blouse to wear with black pants and heels for an evening out on the town. This combination always looks chic and ultra-sophisticated. Most leopard patterned blouses can also be worn with dark brown and deep rust pants and skirts, so don’t feel like you’re restricted to black. It’s a great pattern to dress up a wardrobe of neutrals that could use a quick update.

Beige Leopard Banded Bottom Sleeveless DressWhen choosing a leopard print keep in mind that the scale of the print you choose can have a big impact on the look. If you want to stand out, choose a larger, bolder print. You can also find leopard skin prints that are smaller and more discrete if you want a conservative look. Try using the size of the print to subtly enhance your figure. If you want to draw the eye up and away from your hips, wear a large, bold leopard pattern.

If you want a dramatic look, visit a vintage clothing store and find a leopard print coat. These were popular in the 1950’s and 1960’s and can be found in faux fur in a variety of styles including swing coats and trapeze styles. These pieces are very bold and look best against a simple background of black or dark brown. They’re fun to wear on casual weekend excursions.

Have fun exploring the world of leopard prints this year!
