Leopard: Practically a Neutral

A year ago, I never would have thought I'd be loving mixing patterns so much! I never would have thought I'd be loving leopard print either. But really, leopard is surprisingly an easy print to mix. It a great accent in a belt, shoes, or scarf because it is made of neutral colors. It goes well with stripes, florals, plaid, and polka dots. 

There is a lot of great inspiration out there with leopard pattern mixing. I have seen it with polka dots, but finally got a chance to try it out this week. As with all the other times I've worn it, I'm definitely loving the pattern mixing and leopard!

  11. Leopard has surprised me too! A year ago I thought it was a little too... Jersey Shore? Haha but now it's totally classy and definitely works like a neutral! I can still only stand it in small doses, in accessories, but it's a big step! I love the leopard here, the mix of neutrals and mix of patterns, and the color of those tights!

  14. This is YOUR BEST OUTFIT YET this Fall. It might be my most favorite of the entire blog thus far. I want to re-create it so bad but I need a dress like yours first. Great job Pattern-Mixing and yes Leopard is definitely a Neutral in my book. ;-)


    Enjoy your weekend!

  16. I couldn't have said it better myself! I think leopard has become a lot more classy and I love it as an accent. Maybe in the future I might even get a leopard print piece of clothing (gasp!).
