How to Wear Leopard Print or Snake Print...Without Overdoing It!

Animal print is everywhere. My personal favorite is leopard or cheetah! Although I do love animal prints, it can easily end up looking tacky if not styled right. Today, I thought it would be nice to show you how you can add leopard (and snake print)  into your wardrobe without it being overdone. All looks below are a combination of SUG and personal items. 

Monochrome Leopard Look

This first look adds leopard print pants in neutral color. Our cream Cadence Popcorn Cardigan and a nude pump were added to complement the jeans. Lastly, for a pop of color a blush pink top was added to complete the look.

Snake Wide Leg Pants with Duster

For this look I put on our Idalys Snake Print Wide Leg Pants. To keep the look from being too much, I added a neutral colored duster a black bodysuit similar to our Long Sleeve Bodysuit. A skinny belt was added to cinch the waist!

Leopard Shift Dress

This dress is from my personal collection. I loved the leopard print immediately. However, the colors of white, black, and grey - as well as -the shift silhouette keep this dress from being too flashy.

Leopard Top and Vest Combo

This look combines both trendy and classic elements. As a base, I’m wearing our Kestra Bell Sleeve Blouse and our Onyx Faux Leather Leggings. To add some color and interest, I added a hunter green vest, hunter green booties, and a furry hunter green wristlet.

What I love about all of these looks is that they all include some form of animal print. However, none of the prints outshined the whole outfit. If you like animal print but are unsure of how to incorporate it into your personal style, give one of the ideas above a try!
