Leopard print is so on trend right now. And, if you treat it like a neutral, it's so versatile and easy to wear. In today's post, I'd like to share five different ways to rock a leopard print blazer. These outfit ideas only scratch the surface of the countless ways you can style a statement blazer. I invite you to use this post as your inspiration to create a new look.
LOOK 1: black shorts with a graphic top
For my first look, I paired my leopard blazer with black shorts and a short sleeve graphic sweater. I kept my entire base black for a clean, polished look. The flower graphic and leopard print really pops - think about Dolce & Gabbana... they are known for leopard and flowers. Throw on a pair of dressy sandals and a black bag, and you're all set for a fun casual date night, drinks with the girls, or even book club.
LOOK 2: lace bralette and leather pants
This next look is perfect for date night. Throw on a pretty black lace bralette or cami with a pair of black leather pants and button up your blazer for a sexy sophisticated look. Killer heels and a black clutch finish off my ensemble. Keeping your entire base black, try changing this outfit up with a bright heel or fun clutch. How cute and unpredictable would fluorescent pumps be! Remember - your leopard blazer is like a neutral. Don't be afraid of the print. Lastly, I layered on some chains for a little added sparkle.
LOOK 3: dress and booties
Wear this look to the office, church, brunch, a shower, and more. Paired with a simple black dress, you will look classy and sophisticated. I decided to belt my dress for an added pop. Throw on a cute pair of black booties and black handbag, and you're ready to go. Just like my last look - if you keep your base black, try adding a pop of color to your booties or handbag. Likewise, throw on a colored dress - red, pink, blue... whatever, and pair with your black booties and handbag for a classy cool look that's totally on trend. Another idea - wear everything in one monochromatic color and toss on your leopard blazer. Fabulous.
LOOK 4: turtleneck and pants
For this look, I wore a black turtleneck with black ankle cut pants for my base. Remembering my leopard blazer is acting like a neutral, I added a pop of color with my shoes and handbag. Look at how busy my bag is... and it totally works. Don't be afraid of adding a fun artistic graphic to your outfit. I also threw on a fun chain belt to break up my black base. The white pearls coordinate with my handbag, tying my entire outfit together. Wear this to the office or a fun night out. Again, the look is classy, cool, and on trend. You can't go wrong.
LOOK 5: T-shirt and cutoffs
For my final look, I threw on a white graphic tee, cutoffs, and a pair of white sneakers. I added a black belt for a more polished look. Grab a cute backpack, and you have a casual cool outfit perfect for daytime errands, eating out with the kids, or whatever life throws at you.
