I don’t know if I’m all about overalls, but I am all about mixing and matching my favorite fall patterns. If that means taking a walk on the wild side, then count me in. Layering on classic houndstooth check and lovable leopard just feels right. It’s my “pattern clash” of choice, and I’d encourage you to give your own version a try.
When I’m not loving all things leopard print, I’m falling pretty hard for deep-hued florals. They still feel fresh and fun with the weather staying closer to summer temps than those of autumn, especially when they take shape in a fabulous, flutter-sleeved midi dress like this. But cooler days are definitely ahead, so I’ve been playing with how to keep these two trendy patterns going, and better yet, going together.
Apparently all the cool girls in Copenhagen have leopard print at the top of their Fall 2018 fashion lists. And we all know my love for leopard knows no bounds. So does that make me cool? Whether it’s yes or no, sometimes it’s best to tone this wild side down a bit. And nothing does that better or more beautifully than a well-tailored (and well-priced!) blazer and pants.
Yes, you’re seeing spots. As in leopard. Because the fashion world is seriously wild about this iconic pattern. And since I am too, it’s going to be in heavy rotation this Fall…and beyond. You got your first glimpse of my so-loved silk leopard print skirt in this recent post. So it was only natural that my closet was in need of a great pair of leopard pants, right? Dressed up or down, these silky, slouchy wide leg pants are definitely going to be prowling around town.
