Let’s talk about …The Leopard Print Pencil Skirt

Posted By: Terri

Happy Monday. My day started out with a wonderful style question:

What does one pair with a leopard print pencil skirt?

First off-I L.O.V.E. animal print and have a few basic style rules that should help you navigate on how to wear this print to your best advantage:

1. Wear only ONE animal print at a time. Translation. The only time  different animal prints should be paired together is at the Zoo and even then it can get dicey.(Translation) I don’t recommend pairing a leopard print with a zebra print. Choose one print and stick to  that as being your statement piece.

Only wear ONE animal print at a time.

2. Leopard is a neutral.. Feel free to pair your animal print item with just about anything and everything but use restraint. Leopard can be paired with solid colors from black to vibrant hues, stripes, plaids and denim. However, it’s best to choose ONE and make your outfit cohesive.

Plush pairing: Plaid & Animal Print

3. Fit is Key  This rule is the number one mantra for looking chic! Like anything and everything you wear fit is the absolute deal maker or breaker when it comes to looking your best.

4. Faux is the ONLY way to go! I am a major animal advocate so I must say that FAUX is the only way to go when it comes to purchasing animal print anything. Faux animal prints have gotten so high tech they look like the real thing and nobody gets hurt

Top it OFF: A basic white blouse or tee, a beautiful red sweater or blouse, basic black crew, sweater or jacket  or opt out for a tan plan.

Jacket options to layer over animal print skirts  are endless:  Go bright to black, denim and motorcycle styles. All work well just make sure you check proportion for your body type.

Footwear: Depending on your look -(sporty, casual, dressy) pair your animal print skirt with  a bevy of beautiful footwear options from sandals to sneakers, flats, pumps and boots .

  • For a look of sophistication and elegance: Add a solid color sweater/blouse and coordinating Blazer/Jacket to elevate your look. You could also add pumps to match. However I do love the basic black strappy pointed toe pump.

Hello Friday! Wellll, the holidays are behind us and we are smack dab in the middle of January. If you’re looking for a little something to put a little pep in your step I HIGHLY suggest adding a pretty POP of animal print in your world.

Animal print is a neutral..(translation-you can pair it with anything)BUT I do suggest you wear only one animal print at a time. My final note on any animal print is that it only be faux. Faux is the only way to go.

Here are a few fashionable suggestions to inspire you to indulge in a pop of print this weekend.

Happy Friday!

Pop of Print

Monday! The start of another week which technically should be a realllly good thing but somehow we seem to all need a little extra push after the weekend. Now to acquire this much needed pep in your step  and not just for fun  but fashion’s sake why not add a pop of animal print and see if that doesn’t do the trick. For my money there is nothing and I do mean nothing that I love more than adding a little animal print to one’s abode or attire. It can be something small-think throw pillow, book cover or if you’re talking attire an animal print scarf,handbag or belt. For those not so shy-have at it and go full out  by covering your stairs with lovely  animal print  or perhaps wear a coat or dress with this lovely motif. The only style rule to remember is to wear only one animal print at a time and please always go faux!

Spot on Style….

I have always subscribed to the notion that any sort of animal print is a neutral and I guess I’m in good company. (Just a little side note-I am a TOTAL animal lover so when I say animal print I do mean FAUX).
