Ways to Wear: A Leopard Tee

Not usually one for a lot of leopard, this faded version of a leopard tee caught my eye because its kind of a non-boring neutral– it has a subtle pattern which adds interest, without being too much in your face.  Leopard can be tricky because you never want to look like a cheesy 80s videostar, too overtly sexy or cheap– So here’s how I tempered the look two different ways:

Leopard tee: Topshop via Nordstrom (similar versions I love here and here) | Velvet jumper: Topshop | White booties: Zara (sold out, similar here and here) | Sunnies: Quay Austrailia | Bag: Saint Laurent

Look 1: Here, I layered the tee under a red velvet jumper dress to give an unexpected contrast in textures…the jumper is kind of old school seventies school girl , while the booties and tee are more edgy and rocker- love them paired together! Don’t be afraid to mix a texture and pattern together, as long as they aren’t too aggressive on their own and fighting for attention!

Leopard Tee: Topshop (same as above) shop other ones I like here and here | Jeans: Madewell (YOU WILL NOT REGRET THIS PURCHASE I SWEAR!) | Loafers: H&M | Sheer Mesh Top : H&M

Look 2: For the second look, I decided to layer a sheer mesh dotted long sleeve top (fave layering piece of the moment) UNDER the leopard tee— I got asked all day if they “came together” which they did not– but it almost seems like they could have, right?  I paired them with my FAVE pair of black ripped skinnies of all time, the Madewell skinny jeans, and these caramel colored loafer slides from H&M.  The color of the slides brings out the warm tones in the leopard tee, tying it all together.  The look is totally neutral, yet visually interesting.

On an unrelated note, its officially SPRING BREAK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  So excited to be off with Tim and Nolan for the next week– we’re headed to Miami on Monday, so stay tuned to Instagram for lots of warm weather outfit inspo!

xo, ❤
