On the Prowl: 5 Leopard Print Must-Haves

It’s time to take a walk on the wild side. If Fashion Week has taught you anything in the last month, it’s that animal print is the new black.

For the upcoming Fall 2019 fashion season, it seems like leopard print will be everywhere. From fast fashion retailers like Forever 21, to luxury designers like Versace, it will be accessible to just about anyone.

With so many choices to stylize this chic animal print, where does one begin? Considering not many of us can purchase the fur coat from Michael Kors’ collection or the stunning dress from Kate Spade, I’ve come up with five purrr-fect items to keep you feeling fierce all fall season.

Marc Jacobs Fall 2019 ready-to-wear collection featured many leopard print pieces.

I’ll be the first to admit, I have way too many shoes. But adding a pair of leopard booties is an absolute must. The best part is they can easily be dressed up with a sleek LBD or dressed down with skinny legs and a tee.

Outerwear is the best item to add to any outfit to kick it up a notch. There are so many options from bright puffers to distressed denim jackets. But, no girls’ wardrobe will be complete this fall without a leopard print coat. Throw it over almost any outfit and you’ll be set.

I have always loved hair accessories, but hair scarves have to be my favorite. Channel your inner Blair Waldorf by styling a classy leopard print scarf around your lovely locks.

Try a leopard print scrunchie to bring tha ’90s vibe into 2019.

Bored with your blue jeans? Make a daring statement in a wild pair of leopard print pants. A skinny leg fit paired with a neutral top will keep you feeling chic all day.

Show off your curves by creating a cinched-waist with a leopard printed belt. Loop it around a pair of high-waisted pants or shirt dress for the most flattering effect.

Bring out your wild side this fall season with any of these leopard must-haves. If you are what you eat, then you are what you wear. So embrace your inner leopard for some fierce confidence.   

The perfect pair. Statement leopard skinnies worn with a solid black top make the most chic street-style look.
