You're In: Leopard Print

Say what you want but I believe that leopard print is like the neutral of the print world. More exciting the polka dots, more versatile than plaid, and more hip than florals, leopard print (or cheetah print) is a great way to add some oomf (or pizzazz, if you will) to your look and it goes with practically anything. The problem with leopard print is that if you're a little too enthusiastic, you can go from klassy to a Kardashian in 30 seconds flat. So keep it simple - with one or two pieces - and never ever ever do this:

Here's a collection of leopard gems that I found on various online retail sites:

From top left, clockwise: Whistles dress -; Wilfred top -; Gloves -, Booties -; Wilfred scarf -; Coat - forever; Bag -; YSL shoes -; Alexander McQueen scarf -, Belt -

My leopard-print purchases for the fall were Gap cheetah print legging jeans that are in a similar vein to the ubiquitous Current/Elliott leopard print jeans but less than a third of the price. 

Also, after a month of searching, I was ecstatic when I found the perfect pony-haired leopard-print  for $50 at Aritzia in New York. Leopard perfection.
