How to Wear Leopard Print and a LINKUP

4:00 AM

Scarf:  Zara // Blazer: Gucci // Pants:  Burberry // Shoes:  Nine West (old)

I guess this is where I show my Jersey Girl side.  I feel like whenever someone sees leopard print they immediately associate it with a Jersey Girl.  I’ve been told that a lot believe it or not, however I’m glad that I’ve seen leopard print everywhere as the new neutral.  I personally love it and have loved it for quite some time, however I’ve always been careful with how I style it.  It’s so easy to overdo it with leopard print and look like you’re trying too hard.  I have no problem wearing a top that is all leopard print or even a dress that is all leopard print but I will accessorize a certain way.  For this look I chose to wear my leopard print scarf that’s Zara.  I bought it last year from my blogger bestie on her eBay, she didn’t know I was buying it from her but I figured I would support her even if it’s with a few bucks since she also bought from my Etsy shop.  Anyway, I love love love this scarf.  Everything about it is so perfect.  It’s leopard print, huge, and keeps me warm, but also adds a little somethin’ extra to any outfit.  With this outfit I wore it with a blazer, some nice skinnies, and my heels.  This is something I would wear to the office.  See, you can still dress up with your own twang even in the office.

I also wanted to show other subtle ways to incorporate leopard print into your wardrobe.  I know not everyone would enjoy wearing a huge leopard print scarf like this, because that is a WHOLE LOTTA LEOPARD.  However, this print is the new neutral so take a look at a few ways to show off a little attitude with print.

For look 1 I chose to wear the same scarf with a blazer, hat, black pants, and boots.  I love this picture probably mostly because it's snowing, but because it's all black and then you have the pop of print which is noticeable from far away.  In look 2 I wore an extremely skinny leopard print scarf.  You can tie this, or just hang it to make it look like an effortless look.  In look 3 you can barely see the leopard print in my shoes.  This is a great look for the office if you are looking for some spunk.  With look 4 I wore the big scarf again, but with a more casual outfit.  I paired it with an oversized top and faux leather leggings. 

This was my blogiversary outfit.  It was probably one of my favorites here on the blog.  I wore leopard print with my shoes, and also a subtle leopard print in my necklace.  

Now, let's move on to the linkup!
