Animal Instincts

Hi everyone! Happy Monday :)

Today I wanted to share an outfit I wore out to lunch with my good friend Joy, photographer behind Joy Sun Photography, who kindly offered to shoot these photos for me! You've probably heard it tons and tons of times before, but for many of us leopard is essentially a neutral in our wardrobes. However, instead of leopard being the neutral in this pairing, I wanted to use a neutral base of black in order for the leopard print to be the main focus. As I've mentioned in the past, I always like to mix textures when it comes to an all black outfit because in my opinion, that's truly what makes an all black ensemble chic. I mixed shag with a coated, leather-like jean along with my perforated faux leather bag. Paired with the faux fur leopard print vest, it adds more dimension and interest to the look. 

And of course, an all black outfit is never complete without some gold (or silver) accents!

How do you style leopard as a focal piece in your outfit pairings? I'd love to know in the comments below!

  3. This is such a classy look!! I love the pop of leopard print, especially paired with such a textured sweater. Your pants are my favorite part of this outfit, though. I love a good pair of moto jeans!! Great look as always!
