In an ode to Roberto Cavalli whose H&M line debuts tomorrow, we thought we would do a post on leopard prints. They are not my personal favorites, but hey…every girl has a little Cavalli in her, mine just happens to be repressed.
Here is the deal with leopard prints…wear them in moderation, please, I beg. One piece at a time. If you are intrepid like myself, try a belt or a simple handbag for a little craziness. If you have the gumption wear your favorite dress or coat with all black (it looks best with a black background to play off of). Keep in mind that leopard prints are not always very slimming, so wear it on a part of your body you want to accentuate. Or keep it minimalistic with a scarf or gloves. Remember, this print is not for a wallflower. It screams notice me!
