How to Make Leopard Look Timeless

all black outfit with leopard loafers

outfit details:

black jeans (wear my normal size but probably could have sized up) | black cable knit sweater (got it on Amazon Prime day and I’m obsessed with the look and impressed with the quality! Runs tts) | leopard loafers (old J.Crew, similar options here, here, and here) | sunglasses (c/o Mohala Eyewear, use code katiev for 10% off)

Leopard is one of those prints that I always gravitate towards as the temperature starts to drop.  If you’ve never worn the print before you might think it’s a little edgy or even on the scandalous side, but when done in classic silhouettes and flowier styles it definitely reads as polished, timeless and classic.  The key is to get a really pretty print (there are so many takes on leopard and some can read classic while others not-so-much) and to pair the print with chic and simple pieces (think black pants, sleek crewneck sweaters or simple shoes) so that you get a look that is reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn or Jackie O.

Most of my leopard print pieces were bought years ago, yet because of their timeless designs I can bring them back year after year.  Here are 3 ways I’ve worn leopard print this fall, as well as a bunch of stylish leopard print pieces that will help you get a similar and timeless look.  Just click the image and it’ll take you right to the item to shop!  Stores range from Walmart and Old Navy to Nordstrom and J.Crew, so there is something for every price point.
