Leopard print is my favourite neutral. Truthfully, it’s a timeless print, but there are so many ways you can wear it and make a statement. In this post I’ve covered three of those ways!
Leopard print and earthy tones
One of my favourite ways to wear leopard print is to pair it with natural and earthy tones. When putting together an outfit with this theme, you should aim to have the following elements:
Naturally, we’re starting with leopard. Will you wear a leopard top, skirt or dress?
1-2 earthy tones
If you’re wearing a leopard top or skirt, you can get away with incorporating 1-2 earthy block colours.
Leopard top + maroon skirt + beige coat
Leopard skirt + maroon shirt + khaki coat
Here’s a look that I put together using this method
Coat Country soft trench in ‘Biscuit’ $399 | Top (you may recognise this from this post): Witchery print drape shirt was $119.95 now $39.95 (further reduced) | Skirt Calli Austin mini skirt in burgundy $79.95 | Shoes Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ $695 USD
If you’d like to incorporate more earthy tones, you could do this via your shoes and accessories. For example, a khaki suede pump would work with this outfit. I’ve included some examples of other bloggers who rock this method!

Pink and Leopard Print
I don’t know why, but pink and leopard just work. Of course, it can look tacky if it isn’t done the right way (think Playboy Bunny bed covers), but when it’s done well it’s fashion gold.

Leopard and Neon
Just to be clear, I’m not referring to neon leopard print (which I love by the way!). I’m talking about teaming traditional leopard print with a neon colour. This creates an edgy look and not to mention a fashion statement!

Do you like to wear leopard print? Have you worn leopard in any of the ways described above?
