At first, I had this post titled ‘ A little bit of leopard’ and then I looked at my photos and quickly realized the error of my ways. This ain’t a little bit of leopard, this is A LOT OF LEOPARD. And I am here for it 100%. Have you seen this trend around? Not only leopard print, but specifically the leopard skirt trend. I’ve seen it a lot with just a simple white tee, which I also agree with, but I wanted to…you know…Kendi up the outfit a bit. I love the idea of sneakers with most anything these days so my trusty Stan Smiths started this whole outfit idea. I paired it with this graphic tee and my new denim jacket from last week’s try-on. Let’s break this look down:
- Leopard skirt: So this one is from Free People and I love it. It’s slinky and fitted but is surprisingly mom tummy friendly. I think I am wearing it a little bit higher than the model because my torso is really long, but I found it to be true to size. I’m in the 8, and I am 5’9″ for reference. I think it will be more maxi skirt if you are under 5’7″. I loved that this skirt had a pink undertone, it feels more approachable from a styling point of view and tones down the animal print vibe that can sometimes be a bit harsh. It’s a more feminine take on the animal print trend right now if you will. I’ve found a few other leopard skirt options below! You can find this one here!
- Graphic tee: Look, this skirt works VERY well with a white tee but I felt like that’s what is expected with this look. Expected and welcomed, I should say. If you’re new to this trend, I say start with a white tee either tucked or knotted at the front. But if you want to pick it up a bit, try a graphic tee or something a bit more unexpected. (I would stay away from stripes though! That could become a bit complicated as far as mixing patterns!) You can find my graphic tee here or a simple white tee here.
- Sneakers: If you search for leopard skirt on Pinterest, you will find this look over and over again. Leopard maxi with sneaks; it’s a vibe. I was excited to pull out some sneakers I’ve not worn in a couple of seasons, my Adidas Stan Smith’s (which recently re-released at Nordstrom!). This skirt is actually quite nice so the sneakers bring it down a few notches. If you aren’t feelings sneakers + skirts, try this skirt with heels or nice pair of pointed flats! You can find my sneakers here.
- Denim jacket: What ties every outfit together and is the number 1 item you’ll wear over and over again in your closet? That’s right — the denim jacket. I just had to toss this one on to complete my outfit. I picked this one up from Target and sized up one for a ‘boyfriend’ look. I already have a great fitted denim jacket so this one serves as a more casual look. If you want it to fit like the model, stay true to size! You can find it here.
Lot of Leopard Options!
