Leopard print is one of my favorite things ever. I used to have leopard print everything, from shoes to shirts to sunglasses… well, I don’t really anymore except heels and I don’t know what happened!! I need to get my leopard print obsession back! I just purchased a J Crew leopard print cardigan on poshmark so excited to dress it up!
A few years ago, leopard print was more associated with The Real Housewives of New Jersey and a tacky sense of style instead of fashion. But now, thankfully, leopard print is everywhere… in fact, it’s really more of a neutral than a pattern. Sure, there are certain ways leopard print can look a little tacky, but when it’s styled correctly, it looks amazing. It’s fun, it’s interesting, and it’s actually a lot more versatile than you may think.
A lot of people assume leopard print should be worn with black, brown, or white – simple, and served in small doses. Not the case at all! Like I said, leopard print is now basically a neutral and can be worn so many different ways. You just need to get a little creative with it.
While I wait for my cardigan to arrive, and I get it you can’t deny the fact that when you hear the word cardigan, you often think of a lumpy pale blue version styled with a floral midlength skirt, nude pantyhose, and cross-trainers. With that said, women of all ages can pull off this versatile much needed closet item.
Thanks to the suave street style set, cardigans have recently been painted in a whole new light!
I wear a cardigan during summer when walking into aircon places in Houston, but also for my work closet! It’s too easy to feel drawn to a comfortable black one – let’s push the fashion boundaries with another color!
