Hey, Gayle...

OUR HEAD STYLIST. YOUR FASHION QUESTIONS.

THIS MONTH:
Q: I’VE BEEN SEEING A LOT OF LEOPARD PRINT. HOW CAN I WEAR IT WITHOUT LOOKING…TACKY?

A: Around here we say that l
eopard is a neutral— meaning that it’s so easy to wear, at any age. Here are a few ideas. 

TRY A LITTLE

“A pair of leopard heels punctuates a colorful look perfectly. The T-strap feels like a fresh take.” 


DOUBLE UP

“A leopard-print shirt is a great statement piece. Add a clutch in a slightly larger scale, so it isn’t too matchy-matchy.”


HAVE SOME FUN

“This is a total go-for-it look: stripes—which I also consider a neutral—plus florals and a leopard boot. The denim jacket helps ground everything.” 


MIX IT UP

“I love this look. More proof that stripes and leopard are a perfect mix.”


CHOOSE A CLASSIC

“A timeless silhouette, like a crewneck sweater, feels even more fun in a print. Try it paired with a leather midi skirt with a casual half tuck.” 


KEEP THINGS TONAL

“A simple black-and-navy outfit lets the leopard really pop. Add a red lip to keep it from being boring.”
