Wild Thing

Leopard is a Neutral

One of my favorite things in the entire world of fashion is a leopard print. The print is continuously spotted on runways each season, and it appears as though it is here to stay. Leopard prints have even been knighted as a classic wardrobe staple by some of the greatest trendsetters in the fashion industry.

The easiest way to incorporate leopard prints into your wardrobe without going too crazy is with shoes and accessories. An all solid outfit gets the perfect face-lift with a pair of leopard shoes or a handbag.

Here are some easy and foolproof ways to get in touch with your wilder side!

To The Office: Some of you still have to pull it together in the mornings and since office attire can seem boring at times, mix in a leopard print tote to spice things up.

Out of Africa

If animal prints are not your thing, you can definitely get a safari look using neutral pieces such as khaki and olive hues. They are perfect for wearing into fall and can be a great backdrop to wear with your favorite color.

Weekend Casual: Grab your favorite graphic tee for a casual on-the-go look. The days of not wearing white after labor day are long gone so don’t put away your white denim. Ground it with a feminine khaki and create a fall look with a bootie.
