How to wear leopard print booties for fall | 1 item, 3 ways

how to wear leopard print booties

Fact. A touch of leopard makes everything better.

Case in point these leopard print booties I recently received thanks to DSW.

Elegant, a touch edgy, and a whole lot of fierce – these are quickly becoming my go-to boot of the season.

I know there are still some who may shy away from leopard, viewing it as too suggestive a print.

But as J.Crew Creative Director, fashion icon, and my personal style muse Jenna Lyons says:

“As far as I’m concerned, leopard is a neutral.”

Amen sistah.

Even though it’s technically a print, leopard – when done right – is super versatile and can be styled as either a neutral or statement piece for any fall attire.

And to prove that point, today I’m sharing how I styled these leopard print booties 3 different ways as style inspiration for all your fall-themed festivities. Read on to see the 3 different looks!

I am totally in love with pencil skirts right now and have been wearing this striped skirt non-stop. The classic silhouette is everything and makes me feel super polished. The flash of leopard adds a fresh touch to the stripes in the skirt and I adore pairing casual items such as a sweatshirt and denim jacket with more sophisticated pieces.

I’m totally ready for a weekday coffee date with my laptop and a PSL {pumpkin spice latte 😉 } – ’tis the season after all.

Distressed denim and a tuxedo blazer are perfect for a casual fall Friday in the office or a weekend lunch date with your gal pals. Here the leopard is a fun & feminine addition to a tomboyish look. The variety of texture, color, and print all complement one another and just a peek of leopard makes these booties totally office appropriate for the season!

Lastly, why not go all in and embrace the edginess leopard can bring to your look. These booties paired with faux leather leggings are quite provocative. Top everything off with a cropped moto jacket and I feel like I’m one bad mutha – shut your mouth!

Anyone? No?

At any rate, I definitely look as if I should be hitching a ride on the back of a motorcycle to cruise the city. This is a great option for a low-key night filled with hand-crafted fall cocktails at your favorite neighborhood bar.

Now it’s your turn – tell me which look is your favorite? How would you rock these leopard print booties?

I can’t wait to read your thoughts in the comments.

Thanks so much for reading!
