A LEOPARD’s Best Friend!

One of the most popular prints that has truly stood the test of time for decades is Leopard. Whether you find it on pants , shirts, shoes , or bags; it has the power to catch an eye at all times. With the different trends that we go with season after season, leopard has always been tweaked to fit and go with almost every trend.

To make a long story short, Leopard has been here to stay for a long time, and since we will always have a staple of this lovely print in our closet, I thought of many Leopard friendly colors and what really compliments this print.

When it comes to this print on pants, here is a guide to what and how you should TOP it off!

1. The Pop of Color

How funky is it to add a pop of color to leopard prints, it makes it that much more vibrant and alive. Popular matches tend to be red and electric blue, however I personally love fuschia and green!

2. The Classics

You can never go wrong when choosing classic colors such as black / white / beige. Usually if you tend to be less daring and find yourself fitting more into the classics then adding a blazer can give an elegant touch to this loud print. For a casual yet subtle look, opt for a white / black tee.

Denim-Mania | 3 “IN” Trends

As mentioned in my previous blog, Denims have now taken a fashion curve/statement of their own. To add on to my Denim Prints’ blog, I have decided to list the top 3 denim trends that I feel are super eye catchers and a must have this season.

These are all styles that have been really popular among the celebs and denim lovers in general, so you should be able to associate very well with them.

 

dip-dye-ombre-denim

When ombre is done just right, it looks amazing. Ombre jeans are hot this season and goes well with most tops!Not only are ombre jeans original and eye catching, but they’re also highly flattering. Dark tones of denim at the thighs fading into lighter washes at the ankles elongate legs and slims hips. Vibrant ombre jeans in shades of pink, yellow, or baby blue are also fun alternatives to traditional denim.

polka-dot-denim

Say goodbye to your classic blues and have some fun with polka dot print styles! This print has to be the cutest and most fun for me. Not only do I feel super girly wearing it, it gives a subtle uplift to any look you pull off. Plus with polka dots trending right now, one can only think what better than to wear dots on dots. Give it a try!

coated-waxed-denim

Wax coated jeans are a hot fashion trend, gaining popularity thanks to street style bloggers. Girls, across all ages, have been pretty interested in wearing waxed jeans, especially in colous like burgundy, purple, chocolate brown and black, and here’s why:  They are a nice change to ordinary denim, provide interesting textural interest, and also a great substitute for leather pants at a fraction of the price. These jeans look dressier than ordinary denim, and the vibe is edgy, tough, rock ‘n’ roll and modern.

Leopard Prints: Your 4 Step Guide

Ever since i could remember being into fashion, I have had a serious thing for leopard prints. It would just grab my attention whenever I am shopping. The leopard print, made famous by designer Norman Norell in the 1940s, has been a symbol of luxury and glamour for decades. Everyone from Versace and Cavalli to Dolce & Gabbana, Marc Jacobs and Matthew Williamson has somewhere along the line put their signature on this pattern. While we have seen the print go through various bright palette colors, the only print redundancy that can truly outlast seasonal trends is the classic look of the real thing. This is why i will focus on that in this blog.

As a pattern that has become a staple in the fashion world, leopard spots are hot during any time of the year, but work especially well with fall and winter outfits. When you decide to test with the leopards, the following tips can help you stay on the fab track. They are classy, sassy, but can easily jump to trashy!! Do your homework girls.

1- VARIETY & SIMPLICITY: I really encourage everyone to try it out (even though it does really go better on certain skin tones). From clothing, costumes, lingerie, shoes, hats, muffs, hair clips and jewelry, if you are up for it, Take a Walk on the Wild Side! ! Forget following the pack with leopard print EVERYTHING, look gorgeous glam, with only a splash of wild. Trust me it will do that trick.

2- Better Safe than Sorry: If you are unsure how to dress up your leopard piece, keep in mind, when you are in doubt its best to keep it single. You certainly can’t go wrong if you take a single animal print item, a top, bag, shoes or scarf, while the rest of your outfit is entirely a shade of black, white, brown, or beige. Try it out!

3- Refrain from matching the large prints: We all read about fashion being pro matching colors and prints. However, when it comes to animal prints, it creates a “trying too hard” look and has become a big no no. If you are going to choose a large print, choose one part of your outfit and make that wild. If your top is a leopard print, let the tights/skirt/pants be non-animal. If you are going for a dress that has the print, make sure you put on plain black or nude shoes. A touch of the same print on your footwear only works when the black, beige or white shade is the dominant color.

4- D&G Does it Right: If you want to be daring and make sure it is right, you can try Dolce and Gabbana style. Sexy and elegant is never a bad thing!Who better than the designers themselves to give us an insight?
