Leopard patterns are classics, which is why we see them every season and throughout the year. The pattern is versatile, and to some as neutral as wearing black, white and grey. Leopard patterns come in any wardrobe item, but today we’re focussing on the leopard skirt and combining it with heels in a neutral outfit. 

Here are four examples to get you started:

1. Hard-Edged Utility

Combine a leopard print skirt with a white top and olive or tan utility jacket. Finish off the look with heeled black sandal booties or boots to create the hard edge. A black bag and belt are optional. The fluidity of the jacket and A-line skirt are what make outfit proportions look fresh and new. Lots of movement.

2. Classic Pretty

This outfit creates traditionally flattering proportions, which is just as fab. Combine a leopard print pencil skirt with a tucked black top and fitted black moto. Choose a blazer if motos aren’t your thing. Finish off the look with red heels and bag. Easy to pull together.

3. PlayfulLy Prissy

This version is fashion-forward. Combine a straight or flared leopard skirt with a slogan tee or sweatshirt. Semi-tuck the tee or sweatshirt if it’s too baggy. Finish off the outfit with dainty black heels like sandals or pumps, and throw in a structured bag. A fun juxtaposition of items.

4. Elegantly Pattern Mixed

The last version combines a bombshell bottom half with a relaxed top half. Dressy meets sporty in a sophisticated way. Wear a tight leopard skirt with a tee, and drape a pattered pullover over your shoulders. In this case we have leopard squared. Finish off the look with dressy black heels and bag. Or throw in some red if you dare. Add jewellery, eyewear and watch as desired.
