Leopard Print Favorites

Last year I wasn't so sure if I was into the leopard print trend. I think I've kind of strayed away from animal prints in general because of one specific high school memory, which stems from "80's Day". Did anybody else's high school have themed dress up days once a year leading up to homecoming? They would vary from Retro Day to Wacky Day to School Spirit Day. Anyway, a week before my sophomore homecoming, we had 80's Day where I proceeded to wear a NEON YELLOW tiger print top from Wet Seal (that was MY STORE, I had everything from band t-shirts to wooden peace sign earrings to extremely impractical wedges from there and a horrible tiger print top). I wore it with a black mini skirt and raspberry colored leg warmers with my hair in a high side pony and chunky earrings. It was all in good fun, and I definitely got points for wearing a VERY 80s outfit but my history with animal print nearly ended there with the exception of this slip dress.

A decade later, as a 26 year old woman, I have finally decided to try out wearing animal prints regularly again sans the neon yellow. I bought this leopard print midi skirt (similar here) months ago from one of my favorite Philly boutiques, Smak Parlour, and wore it constantly throughout the summer. It paired well with tanks and crop tops but I'm excited to style it with jackets, tees and sweaters this season. For dinner with friends I decided to style it with a Madewell tee and faux leather jacket (similar). I kept it casual with the tee but dressed it up slightly with vintage jewelry and the jacket. I decided to wear a pair of black booties but looking back this also could have paired well with white sneakers. Here are a few other leopard print pieces I'm loving this season!
