Well, this article is for you because here are the 6 ways to look chic and put together with leopard prints! Take a deep breath and relax, wearing leopard prints is not as intimidating as you thought. So ladies, here are the 6 tips when it comes to what to wear with leopard or other animal prints sneakers! Enjoy!
1. Avoid lousy prints on your outfit
I know it sounds obvious but I just can’t help to remind you of this again. Ladies, if you are always wearing a pair of leopard sneakers, let’s not throw all your leopard print clothing on your body. This is definitely not a great way to style your animal prints sneaker.
It’s okay to style your sneaker with some delicate neckwear like a leopard scarf for a pairing. But when it comes to the big significant pieces like leopard prints shoulder bag, long dress, and coat, this will make you look a bit trying too hard and go tacky easily. So ladies, always stay away from the lousy prints so they won’t compete with your leopard print shoes.
2. Wear plain color for the bottom
As the saying goes, less is more. Wearing plain skinny jeans is always a causal way to style your leopard sneaker. With those plain canvas, you can highlight your leopard prints perfectly. I love wearing animal prints shoes with my jeans or plain oversized hoodie, this signature leopard prints just effortlessly makes me looks more dressed up even in causal wear! As a side note, always cuff your jeans to show your ankle to look slimmer and taller visually!
3. Style with leggings to balance out the vibes
Besides going crazy in all sorts of butt exercise, there’s definitely a faster way to get attention in the gym: Wear your leopard sneakers! Alright, I am just kidding here. But in my case, I do found this tip really practical! For most of my sports bras and leggings, they are all in plain colors and look really functional without any flattering designs. While they are really comfy to wear, it can look a bit boring. So, I always wear my leopard sneaker to balance out the boredom of my sportswear and make the whole outfit looks more vibrant and interesting!
I do think legging and leopard sneaker is the ultimate no fail combination, try them out!
4. Pair your leopard print sneakers with a scarf or beret to look more put together
Pairing your leopard sneaker with a scarf or beret is always flattering. Adding an appropriate amount of uniformity can always make you look more put together and fashionable! For me, I love to do the pairing with different colors. Wearing black leopard print shoes with a brown leopard beret is always my favorite! But always remember, don’t do a pairing with more than two pieces at the same time if you don’t want to look like a zoo ambassador!
5. Embrace other leopard print designs for a refreshing look
When it comes to the leopard sneakers, by default we always think of the dark brown conventional leopard prints. While some ladies may think the prints are too bold to carry, let’s not forget there’re always different variations of the leopard prints in the market now! For example, I adore the Adidas NMD animal print series so much lately. Instead of cover the whole sneaker with leopard prints, it wisely highlights the small leopard print area with refreshing white and beige as a background color. This just gives leopard prints new vibes and that’s definitely a refreshing, chic, and less intimidating choice for all the animal prints beginners out there!
6. Opt for Faux leather pants or white jeans for a polished look
If skinny jeans are too casual for a date night, you can style your leopard sneakers with leather pants or white jeans to look a bit more polished! I think all of us agree that faux leather pants/ leggings and leopard prints are truly compatible with each other. If you think the ordinary leather pants are too “shiny” to wear, you can always go for the matte leather pants first! Besides leather pants, white jeans are my big love lately too. White jeans are feminine and classy naturally and I wish I tried these cuties out sooner. Balance with the refreshing white/ beige color, leopard sneakers can look elegant as well!
