Leopard print is not just for South Beach retirees and Vegas casinos anymore. The animal print has never been hotter, and it’s popping up everywhere this season, from the fall 2010 Moschino runway to Urban Outfitters. Here are five perfect leopard pieces to pick up for fall– just don’t wear them all at the same time.
Steve Madden’s Caryssa heels in Leopard ($89.95) are more versatile than they look. The shoes can add just the right amount of sexy to an otherwise all-black sheath dress, or even a splash of vintage glamour to your favorite pair of skinny jeans.
Leopard clothing, unlike accessories, can be a bit trickier to pull off and not end up looking like Peggy Bundy. But this AKA New York Cocoon Top ($238) makes it simple, with a loose silky fabric and airy dolman sleeves.
Not for the fur faint of heart, this Nine West’s Cross Body Fur Flap Bag ($89) nails several of the season’s best trends: leopard, faux fur, cross-body satchels, and embellishment. And yet still costs under $100.
Try leopard in alternate colors like black or silver for a more subdued look; this we are owls Snow Leopard Scarf ($218) will be your favorite go-to scarf this fall. Throw it over a black sweater or black dress for a cool nighttime look.
Urban Outfitters’ Deena & Ozzy Leopard Blanket Scarf ($38) does double duty as a scarf and a wrap. And the darker shade is perfect for those who might be a bit leopard-wary.
