Everyday outfits with leopard print: styling tips
Outfits with a leopard print are one of the long-running hits and enjoy growing popularity in recent years. In the past, however, the animal motifs had a bad reputation and were not considered suitable for everyday use. This year, the leopard print is a real all-round talent and can be staged in a sporty, elegant, feminine or rock style.
The trendsetters show how it is done: during the fashion weeks in Paris, London and Milan, the fashion-conscious women showed themselves with dresses with leopard prints. An airy, casual cut loosened up the elegant look of the animal print. The leather or denim jackets were traditionally the loyal companions of the summer dress. Velvet ankle boots and a bag in the trendy metallic look rounded off the ensemble effectively.
Those who like an eye-catching look can opt for an eclectic color combination and put together a colorful outfit. The combination of a pink bottom, a pink blouse and a coat in beige with dark brown leopard print looks particularly chic.
Those who prefer it more subtle can instead pair their favorite jeans with a striped blouse with ruffles at the waist, a scarf with colorful floral prints and a khaki parka. The leopard print loafers add variety to the neutral color scheme. It’s the perfect outfit for those rainy spring days.
Whether tone-on-tone (or in other words print-in-print) or in combination with a strong solid color such as yellow, the leopard motifs automatically attract attention. The classic color combinations with black, on the other hand, appear more reserved.
The animal pattern can also look very elegant and can even be worn to a chic company party. The pencil skirt is celebrating a comeback and can be perfectly combined with a satin top. Those who like it more classic can style narrow pants with a black sweater and ankle boots or pumps. The classic black midi or mini dress also gets an extra kick together with a leopard print coat.
Leopard print outfits: wear a blouse or sweater with an animal print
The trendy animal pattern works particularly well with monochrome outfits in black, brown or nude shades. A blouse or a sweater with a leopard motif makes the previously simple ensemble an eye-catcher. When it comes to styling, the rule of thumb applies: the larger the leopard prints, the more noticeable they are. You can combine the prints with stripes or even other animal motifs (such as zebra or snake patterns), but they look more suitable for everyday use when paired with plain clothes.
Everyday outfits with leopard print: pants with a high waistband
Regardless of whether it is a leopard, tiger, zebra or snake motif: patterned trousers should fit perfectly. This year, fashionistas are wearing super-stretchy ankle-length slacks with slanted side pockets and combining them with a simple blouse tone-on-tone with a blazer. Accents are set by the accessories. The bag color can vary from neon yellow to royal blue. The matching belt effectively rounds off the stylish outfit. Simple pumps or ballerina shoes let the trousers come to the fore.
How to wear leopard print jumpsuit
A dress or a jumpsuit with a leopard print takes up a lot of space and catches the eye. The rest of the outfit – coat or jacket and shoes should be kept subtle and simple. Otherwise the ensemble seems overcrowded. Instead, accessories can loosen up the exotic look of the jumpsuit. Earrings in sky blue, a small green handbag and matching aviator glasses complete the everyday look.
If you opt for a jumpsuit in the evening, you can wear a handbag in the trendy gold look. Soft beige-brown nuances and gold go perfectly together.
And those who like a sporty look can opt for a medium-length jumpsuit with culottes. The extra wide legs hide problem areas such as the buttocks, hips and stomach and keep you pleasantly cool in the hot summer months. Perfect as beach wear for vacation or, in combination with sneakers, as a casual outfit for a shopping tour in the city.
Style the dress with a leopard print
A leopard print dress can be styled in many ways. In the trendy layered look, together with ankle boots, black leather pants and a green sweater, it acts as an accent and fades into the background. If you want to stand out, you can opt for a figure-flattering cut with a slit at the back. In this case, black pumps make the medium-length dress look particularly elegant. A small yellow handbag gives the outfit additional charm.
Wide skirts, sleek silhouette in a poncho look: This is how the haute couture dresses look that fashion-conscious women have put on for the fashion shows in Paris.
A leopard print dress can also look sporty when worn with sneakers. Perfect for a romantic first date.
Those who dare can opt for animal prints in the trendy colors mustard yellow or coral. The end result looks surprisingly good. Another good news: the two colors can be combined with gold jewelry and are therefore perfect for a party outfit in spring or summer.
Combine coat with leopard print
A coat is no longer just a functional piece of clothing. It has become an important part of the outfit and can set accents or complete the look effectively. It looks particularly cool when other accessories, such as shoes or handbags, take up the pattern.
Two-piece suits are also very popular in the spring-summer 2019 season. Fashion icon Bella Hadid led the way, wearing high-waisted trousers with a matching blazer. A black, off-the-shoulder blouse with an asymmetrical cut loosened up the look of the outfit. The model rounded off her look with a beret. Other fashionistas wear their leopard blazer with pumps with a zebra print.
A monochrome look in black and white provides the perfect backdrop for a leopard print coat. Together with colorful jewelry, the ensemble looks rocky.
Leopard print outfits: the skirt becomes a statement piece of clothing
Whether a pencil skirt or a wide-legged maxi skirt: skirts with a leopard print can be combined in many ways and have therefore proven to be real all-rounders over the years. Whatever you like is allowed, with one exception: the top and the skirt should be color-coordinated.
Style outfits with a leopard print: Espadrilles as eye-catchers
Espadrilles are the most popular summer shoes in Europe. The model comes from Spain, where it was originally worn by the working class. The fashion houses later discovered the shoe, and since then it has been celebrating its resignation. It used to be made of fabric, but now there are also versions made of leather or velvet. The prints also give the traditional summer shoe a modern look. Leopard patterns create a particularly elegant look and make the espadrilles an eye-catcher.
Pumps and ankle boots with animal prints are also enjoying growing popularity. They are usually color-coordinated with the handbag or belt. The outfit itself is kept simple.
