Hi everyone!  If you have been following along on Instagram, you have probably noticed that I am a HUGE fan of leopard print.  I think it is so versatile and can work as a neutral with just about anything.  I have many items with leopard print in my closet, and wanted to share a few ways to wear this fun trend.

The first and most obvious way to style leopard print is with an article of clothing.  You can find pretty much any item in this print - shirts, skirts, pants and sweaters.  Here I am wearing a cozy cardigan in the print.  Because the sweater has a bold pattern, I opted for more basics with the rest of my outfit like a solid color cami, jeans and booties.

If wearing this much leopard isn't your thing, another great way to add this trend to your wardrobe is with some leopard shoes.  You can find sneakers, mules, flats, heels & booties all with the print.  I have found shoes at just about any retailer and at any price point, so you are sure to find a style you like.  You can see three of the style options above.  This print looks great with any solid color and is an easy way to add some fun to a more basic outfit.

A more subtle option to incorporate some leopard in your wardrobe is with an accessory such as a purse or a scarf.  I use this leopard clutch all the time and it works with so many outfits.  Because most leopard items have both brown and black in them, you are able to wear it with most anything in your closet.  I have linked a few other leopard purses styles in addition to the clutch.  And this scarf will be one of the best items you ever purchase!  It is under $20 and goes with everything!

I hope this post gave you some ideas on how to incorporate leopard print in to your wardrobe if you don't already have any.  It really is so versatile and a must have in any wardrobe!  As always, thanks so much for reading Smart Southern Style!
