I admit that I purchased this leopard print top from Old Navy last year with very little idea of what I was going to wear it with.  Turns out that leopard is so versatile that I’ve worn it with white, brown, black, pink, green, and purple just to name a few. And just sitting here writing this post I came up with a few more items in my closet that I want to pair it with.  Crazy, huh?

I’ve had people ask me if it’s okay to wear leopard print to the office. Yes, it is. If your office is more conservative I would stick to using leopard as a layering piece and pair it with neutrals like I did here with the burgundy and brown. However, if your office is a little more laid back then you could put it with brighter colors like red or bright pink or make it the focal point of your outfit.

Leopard is definitely one of my favorite patterns so it’s no wonder it’s a go-to pattern in my closet when I feel as though an outfit needs a bit of a pick-me-up.

    I love leopard and totally agree that it functions like a neutral. I wear my leopard flats constantly because I feel like they match almost everything, but are more fun than standard black or neutral flats. I should have bought two pairs because I worry I’ll wear out this pair.

    I think we actually have the same leopard print shirt from old navy! I love the way you wear leopard print, you’re one of those ladies who can make it look new and interesting and you always pair it with the best colors. I love this with the deeper red cardigan and the brown dress pants, it really tones down the leopard print. I really like the idea of wearing it with green, I’m going to have to try that now.

      Is your long or short sleeved? Mine’s actually sleeveless but sometimes I wish it was long sleeved.

      Definitely put your leopard print with green! Just about any color of green will work, too.

    I should try leopard! It looks so nice on you. I have a zebra print shirt that I’ve had for years. I think that’s my only animal print!
