If you know me at all you know of my love for animal prints ~ zebra, cheetah, leopard... I love them all. I'd have to say out of all the animal prints leopard is my favorite, so much so that when someone asks me what my favorite color is I say, "leopard"! I love leopard in clothing pieces but my favorite way to wear leopard is in accessories. Wear any old jeans and top, toss on some leopard shoes or belt and you instantly kick the style factor up a notch! I treat animal prints as a neutral and love to pair them with jewel tones such as emerald, ruby, sapphire and amethyst. Anything that would go with a neutral will go with animal print.
I found these jeans at a consignment shop and I almost didn't buy them. I thought maybe they were a little too much leopard print for my age and size but I went ahead and tried them on and once I did I knew they needed to be in my wardrobe! They are insanely comfortable! So soft and stretchy. Right away I knew I needed to wear them with this emerald green top. I think the combo works.
What do you think about animal print? Do you love it from afar or wear it almost daily in some way like I do?
I want to thank my fabulous friend, Megan of Frugalista Diaries, for inviting me to join her for 5 Ways To Wear (or 5WTW)! Check out how the other ladies are wearing their animal print! http://www.tfdiaries.com/2012/09/5-ways-to-wear-animal-print-blogger.html
