SHOP THE LEOPARD TREND:
I finally jumped onto the Leo print bandwagon because animal prints are trendy right now. Maybe, you have seen insta girls and fashionistas wearing dresses, skirts (mini – maxi), blouses and swimwear in that particular print.
When I was younger, I think 13 or something like that. I really disliked the Leopard print because I found it tacky and ugly. Also, the print was associated with sex in the 90s – 00s. Even underwear in that print was considered indecent in that time. The bad thing was, that I was conditioned by society to think the same damn way. Which is very stupid, because at the end of a day it is a piece of clothing that has animal prints. Also, isn’t it crazy that people think they know about people’s sexual habits/sexuality due to a certain print?
Sure, some will say that you are what you wear. But I am convinced that people just enjoy the print and can wear whatever the fuck they want to wear. If you wear band tees, that doesn’t mean you are a rock chick. Maybe you enjoy the band or you simply like the style of the T-shirt. And, there is nothing bad about it. So, I hope that we stop judging people unconsciously for the choice of their clothing. Okay – enough with the rambling. 😉
How to style the Leo print trend
Since the Leo print is a statement piece, I would always go with colors like white, grey, black and beige. A Leo skirt can be paired with a white or a black T-shirt or top of any sleeve length. The tops can be plain or have minimalistic prints. A top or a blouse with prints looks good with a button down midi skirt in beige or in light brown. Furthermore, you can wear any shoe you love, I would opt for white sneakers like Allstars Converse chucks or black sandals.
Now, on to the big no. Never mix the Leo with zebra/snake print because it can look disguised. And please don’t combine the animal print with polka dots, stripes and so on.
