Leopard Print – The Most Popular Trend for Fall

If you follow fashion trends at all, you may have noticed leopard/cheetah print popping up everywhere this season. I can understand why, as cheetahs/leopards are stunningly beautiful animals. They say that “leopard is the new neutral”. Wearing leopard print is such a great way to add some visual interest to your outfit and it is such a classic style. Of course on an animal this pattern is perfect for blending in to the background, and this is why you can mix it with whatever you are wearing too!

This year one can find a nice leopard to just about everywhere. I knew I wanted one for this season, as it is such a great piece to dress up or dress down. My favorite has to be this Wayf Becca rushed cap sleeve top that I found on Amazon. Wayf has always been one of my favorite brands to shop. Their designs are always classic yet fashion forward, and the pieces are always affordable too.

What’s not to love about this top? The velvet material is so soft and luxurious. The peplum design with it’s plunging neckline is flattering on anyone. I love the button detail on the front as well. This top is true to size, and I am wearing my typical XS.

I wore this top to work during the week.  So for a more professional look I am wearing it with my classic Banana Republic Sloan pants. For a more casual look this top would also look great with a pair of jeans and heels too.

The Little Leopard Print Dress

A leopard dress is a closet staple piece, just like the little black dress. You really can’t go wrong with it. There are seemingly endless designs when it comes to leopard dresses, and you really can find one for any occasion. You can find them glitzy and luxurious. though I much prefer a understated design.

The wrap design makes this dress flattering for just about anyone. I love the tie detail at the waist, as it really does flatter your figure and it creates a polished look.  And the 3/4 length sleeve is perfect for a cooler fall day. It is fully lined, so no need for a slip. This dress does run a bit large, so I would even recommend sizing down one size. I am wearing my typical XS and I just made sure to tie the belt tight. 

This dress is definitely petite-friendly, as it falls just above my knees. And I love the collared neckline as well!

You Need a Leopard Coat in your Closet

If you are going to have one leopard print piece in your closet, give serious consideration to owning a leopard coat. As I stated in this post, a leopard coat is timeless. Women have been wearing leopard coats across the decades, so it will never go out of style. I would love to wear a nice leopard coat even when I’m old and infirm!

Ann Taylor Cheetah Dot Short Trench

I wanted a nice leopard print trench coat for the fall, and as soon as I saw this cheetah print trench at Ann Taylor, I knew I had to have it. Ann Taylor just had a major sale over the weekend, so it is nearly sold out. This jacket does run big, so if you are petite like me the size 00 is just what you need! And if it has sold out, then if you are still looking for a leopard trench, this Cupcakes and Cashmere trench is a great option.

This time-honored leopard print pairs perfectly with skirts or pants. For a classic outfit, this jacket  looks great with black jeans or pants as I am wearing here. For a fun look wear it with a bright solid color to accentuate your personality! And I love the adjustable belt that cinches at your waist, as it creates a more tailored look.
