I consider a leopard print to be the ultimate neutral, especially in an accessory. In fact, I’m confident that my leopard ballet flats get the most mileage out of my entire shoe collection. However, lately I have been seeing so many fabulous pieces in camouflage. This has led me to ask: “Is camo the new leopard?” Check out my study:
Dare you try a leopard print pant? In a subtle black on black print, the leopard adds some interest but isn’t the focal point of the outfit. I own these pants (surprise!) and I wear them as I would a pair of black jeans. However, you could do the same with the camo pants on the right. Cool when paired with a simple tee and converse or dress them up with a colorful silk top and a pair of high heels…oh, and a slouchy blazer!
The aforementioned leopard ballet flat is a staple; however, a leopard print sneaker?? Yes, please! But, check out these awesome camo print flats. This print definitely add some subtle edge to this lady-like classic.
Accessories are a simple and more understated way to adopt a new trend and/or a print. Try a scarf, belt or bag in leopard or camouflage and add some spark to your outfit.
As for the classic leopard ballet flat, these are my all-time favorite. I spent a lot of time finding just the right pair: a perfect-size print, in calf hair; goes with everything from jeans to pencil skirts, from black to navy to taupe. A little spendy but worth the investment (and now on sale!). A leopard flat remains a wardrobe must-have.
Thanks for reading. And, please keep the feedback coming! What’s your favorite print? Do you prefer leopard or camo??
