leopard print is such a contradictory fashion statement. it can be alternately loud or quiet. when it's bad, it's notorious for being the epitome of tackiness. when it's good, it's the embodiment of sophistication with a dose of cheek. leopard print can be tricky to wear, but i find that it is surprisingly neutral and versatile. the key is to find the right print.
// leopard print ballet flats //i recently got this fun pair of slightly Flintstone-esque leopard ballets by Swedish label Minimarket. how rad are the appliquéd-leather spots?? love that they're on sale too. you also can't go wrong with the classic haircalf version.
// leopard print silk blouse //
i also got this steven alan one on sale last month. i can't resist a simple and elegant silk blouse, and this is the perfect example of leopard print done right!
what's your take on leopard print? how would you wear it?
