We haven’t blogged for awhile but we do post to Instagram daily. (@thesimplystyled – IG plug).
When we discussed getting back into posting on our blog I went through our photos on Instagram for inspiration. I then used Voxer to send a message to Jill about some ideas. She was like “Oh yeah let’s do this”. SO here we are!
We already posted a Mad for Plaid blog so now it is time to talk about ANOTHER print we are mad about! LEOPARD PRINT!
We swear you can wear leopard print with ANYTHING! I mean, I am sure there are some limitations but seriously…it goes with everything we have tried!
We both own a nice assortment of leopard prints. Scarves, shoes, belts, sweaters and cardigans! Jill’s daughter is even in on the leopard print love!
So let’s start with the Leopard print belt…
So Jill paired her leopard print belt with the classic chambray shirt and black slacks. This takes a classic look and adds a pop to the outfit!
The next belt look is from Leah. She was inspired by an image on Pinterest. Simple black dress with black boots, polka dot leggings, a bright colored scarf and the leopard print belt. The belt really ties the mixed patterns together.
Next – leopard print shoes! Leopard print shoes can be sexy and fun. You can wear them with jeans, skirts, slacks, dresses…basically anything but shorts (unless they are leopard print tennis shoes or flats)! We both have leopard print kitten heels and leopard print flats.
Here are examples of how we have worn the shoes PLUS you get a bonus shot of Olivia rocking her leopard print slip ons!
Pic one- simple but classic look. Black slacks, camel sweater and white collared shirt paired with leopard print kitten heels.
Pic two- fantastic pattern mixing! Black printed pants with the leopard print flats. Add a chambray shirt and red cardigan for a pop of color and DONE.
Pic three- Olivia- our guest model! Dark denim with a lighter denim jacket, red and white polka dot scarf paired with a white sweater and her leopard print slip on’s. Such a perfect and hip combo!
Pic four- Jill’s awesome steal from DSW. She got these fantastic kitten heels ON CLEARANCE!
Pic five- Here is how Jill styled an outfit around her shoes. Love the peach scarf with the white top and black slacks. Peach is a great color to pair with leopard print!
We have mentioned in earlier posts how we LOVE scarves. We each own TONS of them. Now, leopard print isn’t always tan, brown and black. You can get this print in a variety of colors!
Ok we have tons of pics wearing our leopard scarves so we just picked a few.
Pic one- Leah paired her silver, grey and black printed scarf with a black and grey striped blouse, jeans and flats.
Pic two and three- Jill’s leopard print scarf styled two different ways. The first is with a black dress and brown boots and the second is with a black top, dark skinny jeans and brown boots. Great color combos for the scarf!
Pic four- Our guest model Olivia is styling Jill’s scarf with a white sweater and her red skinny jeans. Always stylish!
AND the last of our leopard print obsession is cardigans and sweaters!
So, Target has the BEST leopard print cardigan for about $20 or so…go pick it up if you are looking for one! We both own it!
Pic one & two- Jill is wearing the above mentioned cardigan. She has styled it with pants and a dress and boots. It really adds to any outfit!
Pic three- Leah’s grey and black leopard print sweater paired with a black scarf, jeans and boots.
Pic four- from our Mad for Plaid blog, Leah has her OTHER leopard print cardigan (yes she owns 2) with her plaid shirt.
So- this ended up being a pretty long blog post. Hope you have fallen in love with leopard print as much as we are in love with it!
