A New Take On The Leopard Print

I am all for experiencing in fashion. Trying new things, adopting new trends, switching styles, wearing pieces that are so far away from your usual style and well out of your comfort zone. Which is great. Experiencing, playing with fashion, being creative, is what makes a great style after all. However, I do get that sometimes, it might be a bit intimidating. Especially when it comes to patterns like the leopard print.

Quite intimidating indeed.

I have given a go to a full on leopard print look last summer. A red co-ord. Quite daring if I may say so. And although it looked amazing in the photos, I am not sure I’d show up in said outfit at work or on a date (despite me saying to wear whatever I want whenever I want it). So maybe, going full on with that particular outfit was not the best way to start?

Very daring though.

It is all or nothing.

Not always though.

The leopard print is a classic these days. The animal print in general, from zebra to panther or any other. But the leopard print is a fashion staple. We see it most often on faux fur coat, which put together with the right pieces can be incredibly stylish. They are also super warm and comfy, which is perfect for winter!

One of my dreams is to one day own a pair of leopard print heeled pumped. I am sure I could find so many ways to wear them. A pair of jeans, a little black dress.


Maybe in the meantime, I can go bak to wearing the leopard print even though I might go slightly less bold. Why not incorporate the print in an outfit by just wearing it in one piece, or discretely on one piece?

Some time ago, Select Fashion, with whom I had worked with in the past, contacted me for a new collaboration. They New In section had got some new additions and amongst them, a leopard print jumper. The print occupies the top of the jumper and sleeves, just above a thin yellow stripe and a big black stripe

I styled it up with a brown suede skater skirt and a black handbag. I very often wear skater skirts, although they are always black. So I thought for a change, why not go brown?! I was not sure how to style the jumper at first as it already has so many colors but I thought that a black skirt and a black bag would not make the outfit fun. So brown it was! Was a bright blue background to make the outfit pop out.

So here I am, going back to wearing the leopard print, one little step at a time, one piece at a time.

What do you think of the leopard print? Do you enjoy wearing it? Is it one of your wardrobe staples? How often do you wear it? What’s your favorite print to wear?

Thanks a lot for stopping by. I hope you liked this post.

See you soon,

*Pieces from this outfit are a gift but all opinions remain my own.

    I don’t have any item which has leopard print in my wardrobe. I don’t think I can carry it off. My best friend though does it well! I like how you have started incorporating it though.

    These photos are absolutely stunning! Your leopard print pairs perfectly with the skirt and you’ve done so well at taking on a new way of styling leopard print! xx

    I absolutely ADORE leopard print, I have a cardigan, belt, scarves, shoes, t-shirt, and blazer. And Flora loves leopard print too. I usually choose one element and make the rest of my outfit work around it. For me, leopard print is like hoops and red lipstick, you can’t go wrong! Love how you’ve styled this jumper, the brown skirt is a great touch 🙂

    This is one talented photographer ? You look amazing, I absolutely love this outfit on you. I used to own quite a few leopard print pieces but I don’t think it features in my wardrobe at the moment. You’ve styled this beautiful,

    I love printed stuff but I never come out of my comfort zone to actually wear it – I’m a very plane Jane in all honestly but I love how you’ve styled it – it’s not too much but a great addition to your outfit to make it pop!

    I really like a leopard print! I think it can look really smart and stylish and also really versatile too. You look lovely and definitely suit a leopard print!

    This is such a fun outfit, and I love leopard! On everyone else but me! When I was younger, I thought it was something for older women; now that I’m older, I think only young women can carry it off. But you know what, I love it. So I’ve decided I’m going to give it a try, too. Maybe a pair of leopard flats would be a good start? Thanks for the inspiration!

    I have been loving leopard print a lot recently, especially this winter as it goes with a lot of warmer tones. I don’t have much leopard print but I think it’s such a nice print that you can dress it up or down! X

    I will admit that leopard print can be intimidating if it’s something you’re not used to wearing. I really like wearing leopard-print mixed with other patterned prints because from me, leopard print is a neutral. You styled this outfit completely tasteful, the way you pair the boots with this look is pure genius ❤️

    I find most prints intimidating but especially animal print. I love the way this jumper really breaks it up though, makes it a lot less daunting!

    Beautiful photos. Leopard print isn’t for me, but my daughter likes it. She just bought a leopard print coat.

    Ooh I don’t have anything leopard print but that jumper is so cute, I love it. Your whole outfit is awesome!

    Leopard print can be intimidating, but you make it look amazing! It is fun to throw in these bold prints once in a while for sure.

    Looks great!! You’ve certainly got more style than I have ??

  17. February 26, 2019 / 7:50 am

    I have two leopard print dresses and I am loving it. I think it always depends on a person if they know how to rock the style!

  18. February 26, 2019 / 2:34 pm

    Woahhh! Such stunning photos hun! 😀 I love leopard print like it’s such a daring and bold print and can be just the statement piece you need in your life! I just copped a pair of leopard print shoes for work and I can’t wait to wear them! I also love skater skirts so I thought this entire fit was cute!

    I’ve never attempted a floral print in winter. Mainly because the floral print items I have are too chilly for winter!

  20. February 26, 2019 / 9:49 pm

    I love looking at leopard print — on everyone else but me! This outfit looks really cute and fun! It’s cool to have a splash of daring in your outfits!

    Not personally a fab of leopard print but you rock it quite fine. Very nice and tacky approach on style, you look like a bae

    That leopard print top is so gorgeous. I love how you tuck it into the skirt and finish with the long coat. Seems I should now also get a leopard print piece in my ardrobe since I have none at the moment.

    Sometimes leopard prints are tricky to use. But pairing them with basic colors can make it standout.
