The Leopard Print Skirt

A leopard print skirt can be quite versatile. I know what you’re thinking; no it can’t be that versatile because of the bold print and the wild feel of the pattern. Yet a leopard print skirt can be worn in a lot of different situations even though it has such a bold feel. It is most at home when it is worn in a nightclub or out on the town but with attention to detail this skirt can be worn in a lot of different ways.


First let’s start with the basics; the skirt itself must not be too short. Also stay away from anything gathered, you want the skirt to hang smooth and sleek, but not too tight. Whenever you want the most use out of a garment, never go with extremes. This goes for the top as well; a basic black tank top or t-shirt works best. Don’t go for anything too low cut, keep it demure. Look for fabrics with a little give or something in silk or jersey knit for some extra style.

When wearing a leopard print skirt for a night out it’s an easy task. Simply put on a leather jacket, some strappy black stilettos and jazz things up with some sparkly jewelry. Also don’t forget a killer clutch. To tone down the same skirt think less is more. A jeans jacket and a pair of brown tribal inspired sandals or flats work best. Keep your jewelry simple, if you wear hoop earrings, keep them small and think a menswear watch with a leather strap. A cross body brown leather handbag keeps your hands free and adds a casual air.


If your office is a little daring you can wear this skirt to work. A black tailored blazer that is slightly long works best. Add a black belt for waist definition and closed toed pumps with a sensible heel, nothing too thin or too high. A structured handbag keeps this ensemble grounded and for a little sparkle think rose gold. Simple earrings, watch and tailored necklace in rose gold looks quite stylish. See, a leopard print skirt is versatile, don’t you want to go out and buy one?
