Trending This Season: Leopard2018-12-10
The list of why we love leopard is lengthy - and rightfully so. The pattern is frequently cited as a favorite of the world’s most stylish, and its versatility can’t be beat. From feminine to (seriously) fun, a burst of spots or a full-on cascade of leopard spots always hits the right notes. Inevitably and unsurprisingly, it pops up as a runway trend every few seasons with impressive regularity - Proving the pattern has major staying power.
Stylists ands editors love claiming leopard as a neutral, but in our book it is… and it isn’t. To the former, of course: With black, brown, and neutral undertones, it begs to be worn with any number of palettes. And don’t forget, for the big cats themselves the mottled pattern was meant to be camouflage (and you can’t get much more neutral than that).
But based on the sheer panache the pattern packs, it’s also the ultimate statement piece. Leopard can turn any object into a statement item, and will never blend in so much as to be overlooked. Leopard always gets noticed.
That dichotomy is why we’ve fallen so deeply for leopard shoes (we offer spotted versions of the Heel, Boot, Classic, and Loafer). Add a style to your closet and prepare to stand out — Or blend in.
