HOW TO WEAR LEOPARD PRINT FOR THE FIRST TIME
I must admit, I’m not leopard savvy yet, but I do have some really good tips for you on how to start wearing leopard print. Believe me, that fear and second thoughts you have about this edgy, yet 2019 most fashionable print will be gone the minute you read my 2 tips.
Seriously, these tips will help you overcome your fear of wearing this print. If not, at least you tried to pull off the animal print in the safest way possible.
So, what are my two tips?
#1 WEAR LEOPARD PRINT WITH DEEP, RICH COLOURS
First, style it with deep colours. Wait, not any colours match the leopard print. The best colours to wear with the leopard print are blue, green, oxblood, and bronze. Apparently, not any shade of these 4 colours works either. You need to look for deep, rich hues of blue, green, oxblood and bronze.
Or if I say this in 2019 words, style leopard print with Princess Blue, Quetzal Green, and Jester Red. Ps. Find more about SS 2019 IT colours in my Colour Report over here.
Anyway, back to the colours and leopard print. It is Princess blue or Quetzal Green for the shoes. And Jester Red for the bag or a sweater or any other outwears you wear on top of your clothes in leopard print. As it goes for the oxblood, it works best as a makeup or a bag.
As you can see I styled my long leopard Zara dress with princess blue Gianvito Rossi satin pumps.

#2 WEAR IT TO A DATE WITH YOUR FRIENDS FIRST
Secondly, test the leopard print with your friends first. Before you put on your leopard print dress, leopard blouse or leopard pants and wear them to the office, try this print with your squad first.
Believe me, it will be much easier for you to build your confidence in animal print dress if you wear it for a brunch date with your friends first. Besides your friends can tell you if this print looks good on you in the first place. You don’t want to make fashion your victim this season, do you?
Even I wore my new leopard print dress and these stunning blue Gianvito Rossi satin pumps for a brunch with my squad. And yes, they were surprised. Luckily they all thought I passed the test.
