The wildly popular leopard print has been in vogue for some time now and although you may already own a few pieces with this sexy look, the latest incarnations of this ubiquitous animal print is definitely worth incorporating into your Fall wardrobe.
For those of you that shy away from wearing this print for fear of looking too gaudy or cheap, the trick to pulling off this look is to wear only one piece at a time, and as with all animal prints, less is always more.
Some of my favorite pieces for Fall 2013 are:
Alexander McQueen’s leopard print box clutch with skull closure. This piece will cost you a pretty penny at $1450 but it is classic enough to be a staple piece in your wardrobe for years to come. Handmade in Italy and just big enough to carry your evening’s essentials, it is worth the splurge. Available at Bergdorf Goodman
It’s always fun to add a touch of color to your Fall wardrobe and the red leopard print scarf by Ann Taylor, currently on sale for $35 is a steal!
Leopard print skinny jeans are not only for off duty models, as they look great paired with brightly colored pumps or black high heel booties. These by Tripp NYC reverse to a racy red so it’s like getting two pairs of jeans for the price of one! Now on sale at ASOS for $85.43
Comfortable shoes are a Fall wardrobe must for any fashionable New Yorker and these leopard print sneakers by H&M are a definitely must especially at $18.
I love wearing corduroy pants in the Fall, not only are they warm and cozy, but these leopard print skinny cords by Current Elliot are just too hot to pass up! Available at Shopbop for $218
Outerwear with a touch of leopard always looks chic and can instantly pull your Fall look together. The Shelby coat by Elie Tahari has just the right amount of leopard that says “effortlessly chic!” Available at Elie Tahari $1495
Leopard print ballet flats are always in style and the cutest ones are by Charlotte Olympia, complete with a little embroidered cat face…adorable! Available at Bergdorf Goodman $825
Tights are a must have Fall staple in New York and the leopard printed ZARA tights will keep you warm while keeping you looking fashion forward! ZARA $17
