Day 18 of the Fox In Flats Style Dare was Leopard Print. This was a tricky one for me – I have never owned (or even been tempted by) anything leopard print. It just isn’t something I’m in to. But in the interest of trying new things, I picked this scarf up super cheap and thought I could definitely wear it for a single day. (And if things go badly, I have a good friend ready and waiting to take it off my hands!)
Leopard print can vary a lot in pattern – I was just lucky this heavily reduced scarf happened to be my most preferred sort. Medium sized spots, not too yellow, soft blending tones. The first thing I noticed was how it surprisingly goes with so much in my wardrobe. I’ve heard SO many people preach about how versatile leopard print is, but I wasn’t convinced it would work for me so well as I don’t use a lot of brown.
I thought I’d take advantage of the opportunity to create a version of this picture I’ve had saved in Pinterest for a while. Mine doesn’t work as well as Bri’s, partly because my belt is too dark and gets lost, but mostly because I covered up my striped top with a denim jacket. Hey, it’s cold here! (I think the leopard scarf and denim is a winning combination on its own anyway.) Later in the day I tried a slightly different style with the same clothes (see below), and I think I prefer this second look.
