Fall Trend: Leopard Print!

Other / Canada

It’s not official yet, as per the calendar, but according to the weather…Fall’s here!

I have mixed feelings about ringin’ in this new season: 🙂 – ’cause I no longer have to worry about schwitzing through my clothes and hiding where the A/C dictates, but 🙁 ’cause I don’t want the Summer to end and I don’t feel ready for the change in temperature! Whether/weather I like it or not, it’s here, so I have to deal with it.

And as unescapable as this weather, so is Fall’s latest trend, leopard print! If you step into any mall, you’ll spot leopard purses, leopard shoes, leopard scarves, etc. at every turn. Here are some ways to inject a spot of leopard into your wardrobe…
Calvin Klein, The Bay, $150

(I would’ve liked to have tried this shoe on, but they didn’t have it in my size!)

Steve Madden, Madee, $119.95

I looove these Euro-styled loafers! I didn’t even bother trying them on because I already have a pair of the same style shoes – just not in leopard.

I didn’t hone in on any specific purse, as there were lots to choose from, but picking out a leopard purse can be tricky! Leopard sits on a fine line of classy/trashy, so the print has to be just right.

Last but certainly not least are scarves. What better (and practical) way to add a spot of leopard? Scarves are definitely a must while temps are still in a state of confusion.

    I have a leopard print cat and she’s the only leopard print I need/want. 🙂

    I really want to know who decides these trends that all the fashion magazines come up with….so I can then smack them…LOL

    I have one leopard print item in my closet, a tube dress I haven’t worn in years, and that’s all. I got it for a dollar so i’m not too worried.

    If you want to add some trendy pattern to your wardrobe, don’t spend much on it. You’ll regret it when it goes out of style. Instead, head away from the shoe section and look at cheap accessory stores for printed necklaces, bangles, scarves or cellphone cases. They’ll run you under 10 bucks and by the time it’s out of style, it’ll be ready for the trash.

    Or, try leopard-print nails if you MUST try this trend, or any other pattern trend for that matter. There are many tutorials on youtube, look them up!

    Seriously? Not even 1 love for leopard on here? I’m not talking about all-over leopard, just 1 item!

    I like it. I’ll represent!

    this is why i don’t follow trends..gets old too quickly..i am proudly not “in style” and i have several leopard print items,some from my early punk days and some i bought recently..i love leopard,not all over but i have one leopard dress and it looks great with red heels i have,have had many compliments wearing it,i have leopard headbands,a leopard scarf,leopard pumps…i don’t see what is wrong with it.

    I don’t think this is a matter of being trendy. In fact, I think leopard – again, depends on the print/fabric/quality – is a classic and never really goes “out of style”!

    Just like polka dots, floral print, plaid, etc. there’s never a bad time to wear it.

    LOL this was the ‘fall trend’ a few years ago….
    I hate ‘trends’ wish people would wear what makes THEM feel good, not what they think everyone ELSE will like…….but I like those Loafers, I think

    Leopard patterns always make me think of women with blue eye-shadow, nursing one glass of wine at the bar, trying to hard to want someone to love them = COUGARS!

    leopard print is a classic. it comes back in some form every f/w.

    I have 1 awesome pair fo Guess leopard print pumps that I was given as a gift that I LOVE! So I think I might have to get a matching scarf for the winter!

  14. Femme Fatale says:

    I love leopard print! It just screams sexy and fun. It’s a perennial classic-in my book, it could never be ‘out’ or ushered back ‘in’.

    If you just stick to one leopard print item, it really jazzes up what could otherwise be a bland look. More than one is pushing it, depending on the item…definitely a no-no for clothing, more leeway for accessories.

    I don’t care for trends: I buy what I like!
