Are you ready to style the leopard print skirt?
I first started seeing animal prints in August and September of 2018 (featured in my Fall Trend Alert blog post). I knew this was going to be a hot trend for the rest of the year when I spotted animal prints all over fashion week.
Well we’re a whole month into the New Year and I’m predicting that our love for animal prints is only going to grow. Personally, I first started wearing my snakeskin booties and leopard print bag this fall and this winter I finally added a leopard print skirt -thanks to City and Stars for gifting this amazing skirt!
I’m 5ft tall so wearing large prints can be intimating sometimes for my small frame. If you’re petite like me and/or curious about how to style a leopard print skirt, this blog post is for you!
How to Style a Leopard Print Skirt:
Style Tip #1: Style your leopard print skirt with neutrals
Most people consider leopard print a neutral so I thought it would be fun to style this animal printed maxi skirt with more neutrals. Style your skirt with brown, black, or even pale pink sweaters. I personally styled my leopard skirt with a brownish/orange sweater I picked up from the Forever 21 clearance sale.
Style Tip #2: Style your leopard print skirt with block heels
Did you know that you can give the illusion of height by wearing maxi skirts and heels together? In the winter I love wearing block heeled boots and booties with maxi skirts. Boots do a better job keeping my feet warm and maxi skirts help add variety in my winter wardrobe!
Style Tip #3: Keep accessories at a minimum
The animal print is the focal point of my outfit so I chose to keep accessories at a minimum. I’m still wearing stud earrings but I chose to not style any necklaces, bracelets, or rings with this outfit.
