I’m not overly fond of wearing prints but I am a huge fan of animal print. Zebra, Cheetah and Leopard, I love them all. They add a touch of glamour and attitude to whatever they’re paired with and make outfits zing.
I use animal print as a neutral in my wardrobe but most women aren’t neutral about wearing it. They either love it or hate it. Some layer it with gusto or dole it out one piece at a time. I’m in the latter category and let one piece make the statement.
Cheetah print is equally spaced, solid dots on a solid background. Leopard print has irregularly shaped spots that circle together to form rosettes. Most tend to be in warm colors so I consider myself lucky to find Leopard print in a cool tone and snap them up when I find them.
Most of my animal print accessories and garments are Cheetah print because they’re easier to locate in cool tones which flatter my complexion.
I had a peek through my fall and winter accessories last weekend and decided I want to add a few more animal prints to my life.
These Cheetah flats are in a very wearable taupe color and have the increasingly on-trend pointed toe.
Pointed toes are everywhere this fall and a nice change from the chunky shoes we’ve seen for the last several years. I have a wide foot so size up for comfort and add this pad to keep my foot in place at the back of the shoe.
These Gray Leopard booties are in the mail to me:)
They combine the gently pointed toe with the hugely popular kitten heel. Kitten heels have always been in style but are having a resurgence this fall.
My favorite Leopard flats bit the dust last year so imagine my delight to find them in Gray Leopard this year? I know they will be worn to death…I should probably order two pairs but decided to order these Loafers to see if I’d like a pair of each.
Here are a few other pieces in traditional and non-traditional Leopard print colors.
I’ll continue to keep my eye out as things come into the stores. I’m a firm believer in shopping early for unique pieces because stores buy fewer of them and they often sell out. Basics and wardrobe workhorses are usually restocked throughout the season so I can add them later.
What are you wanting to add to your wardrobe this fall?
Thanks for reading ladies and have a great day!
