"As far as I’m concerned, leopard is a neutral." —Jenna Lyons
Trends come and go but there are some things that never go out of style.
Animal prints have been roaring across the fashion world for many years. It’s a trend your mother and grandmother probably wore before you, and yet it still feels relevant.
As we transition into fall it’s time to refresh your wardrobe with this season’s biggest and hottest trend out of all – the leopard print. This isn’t something new, but there is no denying its enormous presence on the Autumn/Winter 2018 runways, pervasive street style stakes, and hefty Instagram presence happening right now!
So, this winter, if you’re going to dress to impress with some latest leopard styles like this gorgeous
V by Very Ruched Sleeve Frill Tea Dress, you must follow some basic fashion tips.
Less is More
No matter how much you love a leopard print, you must keep it within a limit so you don’t look like a fashion victim. What’s important is to wear one item at a time unless it’s accessories only. If you are wearing a leopard coat, you don’t need to pair it with a leopard bag, scarf, hat or shoes. Similarly, if you want to wear a leopard handbag or shoes, the rest of the outfit should be something different so you don’t look OTT.
One Animal Print at a Time
Let’s not get blinded by what fashion runways or fashion magazine display. In everyday life, things can go a bit different so keep yourself confined to one animal print at a time.
This rebellious and bold print has been designed to draw all the eyes towards you. I highly recommended you avoid wearing leopard print on the heavy body parts like busts and cover those areas with some plain colour. Stay classy and sassy.
Don’t over-accessorize with leo accents!
Accessories are the best way to elevate any look, there is no denying. However, the leopard print is quite decorative itself so keep in mind, the lesser, the better.
Personally, I love utilizing leopard accent pieces when my outfit is a bit more demure and solid. This way, I can really let my accessories do the talking.
