Leopard is the It print of the decade

Leopard seems to head for becoming the print of the decade. It has been a trend for a while, well so long that it seems like a classic. And yes, in my opinion, it deserves this status. In its natural colors – either in brown black or black-gray-white of the snow leopard – it’s a great neutral and works with about anything from floral to stripes to neutral, plaid, colors or real bold statement colors like my orange skirt. In case you missed it, here is the link to the post once more on how to look sophisticated in animal print over 40.

Leopard print boots are a big trend right now

I’ve been browsing eBay for a while for some leopard print boots. Persistence paid off. In early fall, I found these cool leopard print boots with back zipper for a bargain. When they arrived, I knew immediately, I wanted to wear them with my orange skirt first.

The funny thing: The first time I wore them a co-worker said she’d recognized me from the back by my boots. I was like “I never wore them before.” Her answer was “You are the only one on campus who would wear such boots.” Score. Touche. You name it. She’s right! These boots are so me.

Analogous colors is a Do

In this look of the day, I went for analogous colors for the top, bottom and accessories. You can go wrong with that combination. Read more on how to wear analogous colors at this link.

Analogous colors are always a fool proof color combination. #agelessstyle Click To Tweet
