No matter how much you love a leopard print, you must keep its use within a limit. Incorporating too many animal prints would make you look like a fashion victim. So, what’s important is to wear one item at a time. If you are wearing a leopard coat, you don’t need to pair it with a leopard scarf, shoes, or a handbag. Similarly, if you want to wear a leopard handbag or shoes, the clothing should be something different.

Mixing animal prints is a hot runway fashion. Super models can pull off this complicated look quite effectively. But in everyday life, things go a bit different. Some ladies want to incorporate more than one animal print. Let’s not get blinded by what fashion runways or fashion magazines display. That’s a very daring step. So, keep yourself confined to one animal print at a time.

Wearing a leopard print is not that simple. There is a very thin line between a classy and a cheesy look. So, you have to be extra cautious. The leopard prints are quite dramatic in themselves. So, don’t be too fussy and frilly and keep the clothing lines clear and crisp. A pencil skirt or a shift dress can be the best examples.

The trendiest way to wear any animal print is by pairing it with some solid, plain color. Pairing it with some floral, geometric or any other print is not recommended for everyone (it requires some guidelines to be followed by you). Funky and young girls can freely experiment with various prints but it’s not recommended for mature women.

Accessories are the best way to elevate any look that you wear. But this rule does not apply when you are wearing a leopard print. The animal or leopard prints are quite decorative in themselves. So, to stay classy, you would have to be choosy. pairing too many accessories with it will do nothing but complicate your look. A small pair of gold stud earrings with bracelets would be good enough, no need to wear a necklace. In short, wear one to two pieces of jewelry at a time.

7. Don’t Wear Leopard Print on your Heavy Body Areas!

Leopard prints are capable of drawing all the eyes towards you. The body part covered with an animal print is easily going to be highlighted. So, it is highly recommended to avoid wearing it on the heavy body parts like busts. The women with heavy backside should not wear an animal print skirt rather cover your heavy body areas with some plain (especially black) color.

Markets are filled with leopard print accessories and look fabulous. And the best part is that these can go from the office to after-hours with ease. Before buying these accessories, keep in mind, the lesser, the better. So, don’t wear more than one animal print accessories at a time. If you opt for an animal print clutch, shoes or glasses, at a time, it would look give a tacky look. Lastly, the most recommended accessory with an animal print dress or skirt, is a leather belt. A leather belt would not only highlight your waist but would also add a touch of glamour.

Whether it’s a leopard printed coat, dress, skirt or a top, for getting a complete look, don’t forget to put on your shoes. There should be no compromise on style, and high heels or flats complement your look. A glamourous staple like it, should never be paired with flats.
