Anyone who knows me well, knows that I LOVE LEOPARD! I have a leopard camera strap, a leopard baseball hat, leopard letters on all of the bulletin boards in my classroom, and leopard bed sheets. You could say I am obsessed. I would never wear a head to toe leopard outfit, but I love adding leopard accents to what I wear. Today’s post is all about adding a little leopard to your outfits. Don’t worry, it’s nothing crazy, but it is so FUN!
#1: Leopard Shoes
There are so many great leopard shoes out there now. You can find leopard flats, heels, wedges, sandals. You name it, they make it with a leopard print. This look combines two of my favorite patterns: leopard and stripes. This black pleated skirt is perfect for work and I love it paired with a simple black and white striped t-shirt. I added a long necklace to the outfit, but the leopard shoes are the star of the show! The great thing about these shoes is the wedge, which makes them so incredibly comfortable. So, don’t be afraid to add some leopard shoes next time you put on a striped top! This combination is sure to turn a few heads 😉

#2: Leopard Shirt
This leopard sweater is one of my favorite pieces in my closet because it is so versatile and comfortable. I paired it with some dark denim, hoop earrings, and black heels. Wearing a leopard pattern top is enough of a statement so I kept the rest of my look pretty simple. I wanted to add just a little bit of color, so I threw on this mint green bracelet. I think this outfit is perfect for a casual Friday or a night out.

#3: Leopard Skirt
I absolutely love the pink and leopard combination in this outfit. This skirt is great because it is not a typical leopard pattern. It is not brown and black like most traditional leopard items. And that’s why I love it! Don’t be afraid of leopard pieces that are not the typical colors because they can sometimes be more fun. This black and white leopard skirt looks great with a pink t-shirt, pink earrings, and pink shoes. I wanted the skirt to be the star of the outfit so I kept the rest of the it in the same color family (PINK!). Just because you wear one black and white piece of clothing doesn’t mean the rest of your outfit also has to be black and white. Don’t be afraid of a little color. Light blue would also look great with this skirt!

#4: Leopard Bag
This is the easiest way to add leopard to your outfit! You can get all dressed in pretty much any color and then just add a leopard bag to pull the entire look together. I love the colors in this look paired with the leopard pattern. White pants with a chambray top is always a winning combination. Just add some nude sandals, and any color sweater will do! I love the contrast of this maroon color with the look. And how cute is this leopard clutch? It is big enough to hold pretty much everything that’s usually in my purse. This comfy effortless look definitely needs to be in your outfit rotation ASAP.

#5: Leopard Belt
This all black look makes me feel so beautiful. And to make it really pop, I just added a leopard belt and a fun lip color! I added heels to this look to make it date night ready. But, you can easily pair it with flats or booties for a great work look. Everyone needs a really great pair of black pants. These are super stretchy and fit like leggings, which I absolutely love! And, this tank top is so simple. Even with the simplicity of the pants and top, this is a very sophisticated and elegant look. All black is stunning and oh so slimming. And then you can just add any accessories you want to make the look pop….as long as it includes this leopard belt 😉
