I'm technically a sucker for animal prints... it seems I just can get enough about these prints, which are an evergreen in Fashion* and really fashionable in the current seasons. Many women love animalier prints, some others think they are a bit "too much". Actually there are many ways to use leopard and animalier prints with style, balancing their inner sensuality and sexiness:

  1. Toning it down in colder shades, such as the gray leopard print I'm wearing in this pic, which I find pretty modern and easy.
  2. Matching it with "less aggressive" accessories, for instance black leggings/jeans instead of nylons.
  3. Another trick is avoiding super short and tight dresses or covering your top, if you are showing your legs, or vice versa, as many stylists suggest.
  4. Limiting this print to one/two pieces for outfit (like the dress and scarf in my outfit)
  5. Matching the leopard print with blacks or whites, also red and electric blue; another really fashionable way to sport leopard prints is to mix them with other prints (i.e. stripes, another fashion basic).

Thanks for visiting my website.

It was Christian Dior in 1947 that first used leopard as a print.
