A Subtle Way to Wear Leopard + Link Up

If there is one print that is everywhere this season, it is leopard.  Now, the animal print is nothing new.  In fact, it's been hanging in many fashionista's wardrobes for years, and some consider it to be a neutral.  Even so, it has taken front and center this season, and become the must-have print of fall 2018.  Some love rocking the bold print full on by wearing a great fitting dress or statement coat, but for those of us who mostly dress on the minimal side, I'm showing you how you can add the animal print to your look, without feeling over the top.

My favorite way to do this is by accessorizing with leopard.  By adding an animal print belt, bag, or pair of shoes, you're sporting the trend, but in a subtle way.  A leopard print booties makes a great option, as they stand out, but aren't necessarily the focal point of your outfit.  A flat or slide can take the look down a notch, but if you just want a hint of leopard, I suggest wearing the print as a belt or pair of earrings.

Trust me, I love the look of a leopard jacket and I'm even digging these pants, but for someone who mainly wears solid black and grey, I'm not ready to rock the trend that boldly..... at least not yet.  However, I am thinking I need this leopard print sweater!

My leopard boots are from last season, and no longer available, but I did link an almost identical pair. My top, jeans, and most of the leopard pieces that I linked below are currently on sale! They are included in the Shopbop Event of the Season Sale where everything is 20% off, and if you spend over $500 you get 25% off.  Hurry, the sale ends Saturday!!
