Pulling off prints can be tricky. Oft times one walks the line between chic and fashion disaster if a harmonious balance isn't struck. A mantra that has popped up recently in the world of fashion has been, Go bold or go home', but with leopard, that is not the advice one should heed.
In the case of accessories, one or two pieces max, should give one enough 'taste' of the print, with out going overboard; be sure to restrict similar prints to opposite halves of your ensemble, for example, belt and shoes, shoes and clutch, belt and hat. In today's 1, 2, 3 styling, a purse and belt, in such a close proximity to one another, would have drawn comparison between the print size, and instead of looking thoughtfully pulled together, the ensemble would have looked haphazardly thrown together.
When wearing leopard clothing, stick to one piece. The 'wild' print is a statement piece in of itself, and doesn't need 'co-ordinating' pieces to distract from it. If you want to enhance the leopard print, pair it with neutrals such as black, brown, tan or chambray. If you want to have fun with it, pair it with a bright fuchsia or pink or a deep red or oxblood to add sophistication to your outfit!
