Maybe it’s because I’m a Leo, but I find I’m drawn to animal prints. They’re fun and exciting when you want to shake things up a bit. A few months ago I picked up these playful, skinny leopard jeans by Michael Kors, and I notice that every time I wear them I get a lot of compliments.
With such a bold print, I like to keep the look simple. Usually, I will wear a black top with a touch of jewelry. I also love to add a pop orange.
For example, I just bought a sporty little jacket to throw on over a top. (Michael Kors, as well). I love the look of this windbreaker with a bomber style cut and rolled up sleeves. The color is so happy, and it is a warm coat too. It’s a very practical spring jacket for the weekends, but it has style too.
Comfort is key to me. Here’s a top I have been wearing lately with these pants from Covered Perfectly who make super soft tops with long sleeves. Finding cute tops with sleeves can be a challenge because most of the tops I see out there are sleeveless or short sleeves. This 3/4 length is the best of both worlds.
You get some coverage, but you still show some skin that gives a youthful look. Did you notice that orange is one of my best colors? My skin and hair are on the warm side, so I wear orange, peach and coral to make me come to life.
You don’t have to wear animal print pants to get the look. A lot of women find a pair of leopard shoes or a bag does the trick. Even the smallest touch of leopard adds an edginess to your outfit. You’ll find many 40+ bloggers who are wild for animal prints. Some like it wild while others keep it subtle.
Do you wear animal prints? Are you a leopard lover? How do you wear it? Let me know.
