What is it about leopard print that makes it so edgy? All things considered, it’s not such a far cry from polka dots and we’re pretty sure that you will agree, polka dots are sweet, while leopard spots are spicy. With a dedicated celebrity following (read: Olivia Palermo, Rachel Bilson, the Kardashians...), it’s a long-lasting trend that can’t be overlooked. In fact, it’s so trendy, it might have just become classic... And here’s the proof...
The Long Coat
With Kylie Minogue and Olivia Palermo on board, how can we not follow suit? We love this luxurious ponyskin version by Dolce & Gabbana. Feelish sluggish? No problem! Just throw it on over a black dress or jeans and your admirers will purr with praise.
Rachel Bilson has been captured in red carpet history more than once donning fiercely stylish dresses, along with Halle Berry, Beyonce, Rosie Huntington-Whitely. Need we say more? It’s bold, yet relatively easy to accessorize. Throw on black booties if you’re feeling edgy or switch to pumps for feline femininity.
For a more casual atmosphere, kick back with Gienchi’s studded leopard print sneakers. With style like this, you’ll always land on your feet. Jeans and a white t-shirt become effortlessly, and it just doesn’t get much better than that.
The perfect touch for those evenings out when you’re feeling a little catty. A little leopard clutch in your paws adds a healthy dose of confidence, not to mention elegance. Just what every girl needs. Treat yourself to a bright red manicure to complete the look.
The Rockstud Pump
We know, really, any leopard print pump draws eyes starting from the toes, but this is not just any pump. Love songs have been written for objects less coveted. Pointy studs, leopard prints and an oh-so-wearable kitten heel. It may be better than gelato.
