Leopard Print - Take a leap on the leopard trend
Animal prints have been hot for some time now. But even more hot is the trendy leopard print.
Many designers have leaped onto the bandwagon of doing various clothing designs using a leopard print. Some have even taken the even bigger leap in designing leopard print boots, shoes and booties. You gotta love those leopard print booties.
Don't forget about 3.1 Phillip Lim's leopard print oxford shoes. How on trend are they? With a slightly stacked heel and dyed textured haircalf, these look like the real deal (no leopards were harmed in the making of these shoes :-) Wear these with some distressed boyfriend jeans and a white fitted shirt for a great everyday look.
Going on a beach vacation, how about a leopard print coverup by 9seed. From a short hi low version to a maxi chiffon leopard print cover up, 9seed has you covered. The long maxi dress could be worn with a short solid slip or lightweight silk dress underneath for a great looking and stylish dinner dress.
Would your wardrobe be complete without a designer leopard print bag? I would dare to say, NO. This is a must have, especially for those woman out there who are a tiny bit afraid to wear a piece of leopard print clothing. An animal print handbag is a great way of incorporating this trendy print into your wardrobe without the animal print taking over your complete look. A touch of leopard print in a handbag can be all you need to take that little black dress from fab to fab-ulous!
And just when you thought you had seen it all - there are now versions of sneakers, work out shoes, trainers and running shoes done in leopard print. Yes, you can even be 'spotted' while working out. Of course, it is the line by Adidas designed by Stella MacCartney who has taken the animal print to that new level of fashion. But, I guess now that work out gear has become so important and stylish, it was bound to happen eventually.
For those of you who have already taken the leap into leopardhood, how about going all out with a pair of leopard print pants. Bec and Bridge have designed a pair of animal print pants done in black and white snow leopard print. Perfectly on trend. Black and white remain very hot and the leopard print is just as hot so combine the two for a doubly hot on trend fashion statement.
And for those of you out there who still would like a little piece of animal print but are really afraid to commit to wearing any kind of leopard print out of your house, how about a pair of underwear bottoms. This way, no one will see them but you are still getting in on the trend. Calvin Klein makes a great array of pretty underwear bikini briefs for you women who are wild on the inside but more subdued on the outside.
Back to boots for a second...if you are the combat boot type, don't just think of them as done in black or brown leather anymore. Diane von Furstenberg has designed a pair of combat boots in leopard print. Oh my...to die for - as I love my Dr. Marten's combat boots and I love me some leopard print!
