Happy Tuesday my beautiful readers!
How’s 2015 going for you so far? First of all, thank you so much for the feedback you’ve been giving us. It’s nice to know we have some love out there! We really appreciate it. On a different note, I can’t believe it’s already the last week of the month! Go figure! I’ve been waxing lyrical about how this month should be over already but you guys can feel me on this. From being broke, to the massive amounts of heat we’ve been having! As a matter of fact, the days seem to be a bit longer than the nights! This is the time to break out those light outfits from the sheers to the lace…and of course deo and sunscreen. And on that sheer note,
Today’s post is all about the Leopard Print!! Leopard prints never go out of style. In fact,I believe every fashionista must own at least a piece of this print be it a dress, a top, a pair of shoes, a scarf or a bag. But how do you make it right?
I love leopard print. It can be a tricky trend to nail down for the first time since it can instantly call attention to the part of your body it appears on. It’s therefore important to ensure that you wear leopard print and not let the leopard wear you instead.
If you think about it, leopard print was more associated with The Real Housewives of New Jersey and some really tacky sense of style. Luckily now leopard print is everywhere… in fact, it’s really more of a neutral than a pattern. But let’s not forget that leopard prints can look a little tacky when styled incorrectly.
Here are a few tips on how to wear your Leopard print outfit to make sure you end up looking FAB and not DRAB.
Don’t match animal print if it’s large
Remember our post on The Art of Mixing Prints?? Choose only one large part of your outfit that’s wild. For instance, if your top is a leopard/tiger/zebra print, let the tights/skirt/pants be non-animal. If it’s your dress that has the print, then let your shoes be plain black or nude.

Pencil skirts are definitely some of my favorite pieces in my closet. They are sexy and quite comfortable. The secret is all in the fabric;if you want the skirt to flatter you. It is perfect for all body shapes and sizes too (imagine that…)
Anyway, for this outfit, I paired a black ,detailed ,sleeveless, halter top with a blue floral pencil skirt and some gorgeous barely there heels(not for the weak at heart).
