Take A Walk On The Wild Side

Okay, so today's post is not MJ's great guess of stalking MK for a full day and taking lots of marvelous photos of her (that would have been a phenomenol post!), but some of you guessed it anyway. This post is all about leopard because ever since I saw these two photos from New York Fashion Week (Lou Doillon) and Milan Fashion Week (The Sartorialist girl), I've had leopard print spinning in my head.




I know that it's maybe slightly off-beat talking about leopard print since it's not in all the fashion magazines and it's not referred to as the 'hot new trend' at the moment, but still, if there's one thing that I've heard from many a stylists mouth it's: Don't throw away any of your leopard pieces! This print always comes back in style. It's that, and you should own at least one perfect Little Black Dress. So, because I feel that my leopard mania is here to stay for a while, I'll share some of my favourite ways of wearing this print. It's important to know what you're doing at all times when you're dealing with something leopard printed because we just have to face it: leopard can go from classy to trashy in a second. So jot down a few style notes from these photos to get it juuuust right.

And just to let you know before looking at the pictures: I've chosen not to post photos of the really known leopard printed looks..you know like the ones worn by Kate, Sienna, Kiera, Nicole etc. (I know, I know...Angelina's coat and Gwen's dress are quite known for the leopard lovers, but I just had to include them!) The reason why is because I would like to mix it up a little, and I have sometimes found that looking beyond my favourite style icons and towards others who I pay a little less attention to, rewards me. If you only tend to stick with a few style icons, things can easily become a bit similar and you might get a bit stuck in your ways of styling your outfits.







Do you own anything leopard printed that you absolutely love?

Ps. I'll comment on all comments tomorrow..busy busy busy.

You are so right! I tell all of the people I work with NEVER to get rid of this style, as it always come back in fashion. My rule? Only do one item at time, and wear it with confidence. I have many items that I love, ballerinas, scarves and the long Cavalli dress for H&M, which I love. We saw pieces of leopard on the Ralph Lauren runway for fall, and many cheaper lines always do fab pieces, even though its not declared a trend. However, whenever I my shoes and other pieces, I always get compliments. So, sometimes I believe its more a question of confidence to carry it of than the fact that it is a trend or not. Love the pictures you picked out!

Jeg har personlig ingenting med leopardtrykk, men jeg er helt enig at det er veldig anvendelig og alltid kommer tilbake. Det ser ofte veldig klassisk og glamorøst ut om det er brukt på en skikkelig måte, f.eks. en kåpe med fantastisk trykk (det skulle jeg gjerne ha...)

Ediot said...

hei - takk så utrolig mye for en lang og trivelig kommentar!
jeg har dessverre blitt sjuk.. supertreigt.. har masse viktige ting i skolen.. men var allikevel på arbeidsintervju på cubus idag-håper virkelig jeg får jobben.. elsker jo klär..

önsker deg en fortsatt trivelig uke..
ang dyremönster.. har vanskelig for det selv.. men det kan se bra ut på visse

enc said...

Leopard can be so risky or so rocking. I don't own any myself, because I'm not an animal print girl, but I do love it on others.

this wheel's on fire said...

hey! thanks for the comment lady! love the prints :)

Lisa said...

agree 100 %. you said it very well.

i love my leopard scarf. its not overbearing but can be paired with SO much.

Jillian said...

I really just LOVE animal prints but i just can't pull them off :( it sucks

michelle said...

I've been forgetting how fierce leopard print truly is. This pictures are gorgeous! :P

Nita-Karoliina said...

recently i purchased a lovely leopard print dress, it is one of my fave prints. and i have worn it for years. my dream is to have leopard print coat amd leggigns..i know the leggings are kinda wild but who cares!

ashleigh said...

i am SUCH a closeted leopard print freak. i love the rock and roll vibe that it holds. i still have all my leopard print pieces.

i always feel as though i have to tread carefully because of the massive amount of mixed emotions on the topic.

i love love love this post! and i'm so glad you gave this print the credit it deserves :) great post my dear.

Stompface said...

I've never been a big fan of leopard print, I guess because I have seen it being worn SO WRONG so many times.

but oh my you have managed to sway me.
these awesome gals sure know how to rock it!

Blonde hair, Blue jeans said...

loved theodora richards, she looks great on cavalli's designs!

but my favourite it's definitely the Sartorialist girl...such and original dress!

yiqin; said...

I have a leopard tiered skirt + flats! I love them! Now I am eyeing for some awesome leopard tights like the one in the picture!

The Clothes Horse said...

Love this post. I actually have several leopard print pieces I adore. It's really a classic to me and I will always wear it lots!

myriam said...

I love Gwen's leopard shorts!!

choppyshades said...

herrlig. elsker leopard! helt siden jeg fikk leopard pumpsene mine for ca. ett år siden har jeg kjøpt mer og mer av leopard mønstrede ting.

nå ønsker jeg meg en god og varm leopard kåpe.

Marte said...

Tusen takk for koselig kommentar på bloggen min - du er en søtnos:) Håper du også får en fin torsdagskveld! Klem

Susanna-Cole said...

I used to be like obessed with leopard print! Now I think it's still hot hot hot, but must be done right and not over done! :)

And thanks for your comment, you're too sweet! I'm so super flattered that you like my blog so much, means a lot to me! I love your blog as well, and talking to you of course! :)

sueper said...

Like leopard prints but somehow don't own a piece yet - don't know if it is really something for me

M said...

Kira Fashion said...

i think it is a classic and well used, like those shots, can be amazing! I have only a biquine, that i also wear as a top, that i love it!

a kiss!

great post!

we wear things said...

oooh i do need something animal print to add to outfits..

Cris Lazoru said...

I adore spots! I actually wished there would be more menswear with them. nothing too tacky but fun. You did such a great job on this post! I loved it, loved it!

Melissa said...

I have this darling leopard top from XXI that I would die without. It is a button down top that can be fashioned in any way imaginable.
And a friend of mine has leopard shoes that I am jealous of extremely.

MJ said...

Aww, thanks for the mention! We'll stalk MK some other time. I for one, am a leopard-lifer. You should never "over-own" leopard in your wardrobe, but you're right in suggesting that one signature piece is all you need. Mine was just dropped off at the drycleaners today, a vintage dinner jacket circa 1960's. Pride and joy, but I don't let on about it, cuz I don't want my friends to copy. Isn't that so wrong (but worth it)?

copperoranges said...

i have a pair of super comfy leopard print flats. i'd really like to find a cozy leopard print scarf ... that would be lovely.

MOND said...

oh man this makes me think of those patterned cardigans at the latest christopher kane show, mmph

lara said...

Awesome post!! I love leoprints, if they are worn right :) I have a leoprinted skirt, but I'm afraid oflooking cheap with it , so I nerver wear it :)

Noldus said...

Nåh, tusen takk :D

atelier said...

I love leopard print. I have a pair of shoes, and also a handbag and a scarf. I have a t-shirt but don't wear it too much, I prefer the leopard print on the complements

aizat.cinta.goddess said...

Sharon Rose said...

Hi there-yes, I have my faux fur leopard print vintage coat and my 90s leopard print dress (in my picture gallery).A definite thumbs up to leopard print, a great post my dear!

Susanne said...

Leopardprint er helt fantastisk! Jeg har en hårbøyle med leopardprint som jeg elsker, og som alltid får komplimenter, og egentlig hadde jeg en topp også, men den ble ødelagt i vask:(

Utrolig flotte bilder du har plukket ut! Jeg elsker bildet med Serena fra GG! Det antrekket er helt fantastisk! :)

Juliet said...

That first jacket is so cool.

Stompface said...

Yes! I love Pocahontas!
Oh I really want a indian headdress in real life. I have been trying to find one for a while now.. maybe I will just make one.

AusAnna said...

Oooh i love leopard. I bought the most amazing silk lep print scarf about 4 years ago, and there hasnt gone a season past since then i haven't found a use for it.
Great post. x

Zoelissima said...

So true! I'm a bit of a leopard print obsessive... i have about 5 scarves in different shades of it!

just to be annoying, i changed my blog address (it used to be www.cashmereandcupcakes.blogspot.com) - tragically, the new one (www.hookershoesandmondayblues.blogspot.com) sums me up a LOT better!

have a good weekend doll!

Aly-gator said...

Mimi said...

heartofpearl♥ said...

ok this is a great post but it makes me sad bcos i remember my grandma gave me this leopard top(black and white) and i think ive given it away :'( i soooo regret it. what fun i could've had with it boohoo!! these pictures are amazing!!

Camilla said...

Så utrolig mye fint det var her :) Jeg elsker leopard beltet mitt. Det er super stilig. Har også et hårbånd i silke, veldig glad i det også :)

Danz said...

Like enc said, leopard print can either be really fabulous or really trashy depending on the actual item of clothing and the fabric it's made from. These ladies look fabulous - I'd love a leopard print coat like Lou or Serena!

Wendy said...

I have a dress that was thrifted but its a little big.

Nay'Chelle said...

I think on leaopard at atime is key. I don't have anything leopard print though...:(

coco said...

I am on a mad hunt for anything leopard print. I love love love it.
This post is amazing. It has given me so many ideas, now I just need to stock up.

Carolina Lange said...

Lou Dillon is incredible! And I love Angelina's coat!

Fruchtzwerg said...

thanks for the inspiration. Leo is not gone yet, you can see so many leo printed tights at several fashion communities. Myself own leopard printed tights, cardi and I'm planning on a scarf or a secnd cardi. Leo printed clothing seem to be an effective element to make your look special.

Anja N said...

yep, ballerina shoes, oasis cardigan, my river island pocket, my scarf, and party-top! all in leopard prints<3
