When wearing leopard print, wear only one item at the time

I love cats, cats of all size. I love their elegant moves, their jumping abilities, their face, and the color pattern of those who have a pattern. Thus, it is no wonder that I love leopard printed patterns on everything from shoes over cardigans and jackets to tights. The safe way to wear the to look sophisticated in the animal print trend is only one fur print item at a time.

Here is how I styled the leo tights.

Treat leopard print as a neutral

Here I use the gray background color of the leopard printed tights to tie the gray cashmere cardigan and chocolate sheath dress together. The plateau high heeled loafers and bag add extra pops of color in burgundy and fuchsia to the other wise all neutrals business casual winter work outfit.

Style your outerwear

For the commute, I switched from the loafers into my dark brown booties, stuck the loafers in the bag, and wore my shearling motorcycle jacket with my gray pom pom hat to sort of repeat the colors of the tights. As you see, Interior Alaska has still a lot of snow.
