In the battle of Leopard prints vs Cheetah prints, Leopard seemed to be at the helm of it all. With its sexy and versatile qualities, it can add an edge to an otherwise gender-neutral silhouette, like a loose T-shirt, basic top or straight-legged pants. You can add a feminine punch to the outfit by pairing your unisex leopard piece with shorts, miniskirts, or a cute tank top. Animal prints can also be used to style office wear, and are completely appropriate, as long as you are smart about putting your ensemble together. To make your life easier, we’ve put together a few styling tips to keep you looking on-trend all year long.

Who said you couldn’t do animal prints for workwear? A bright vibrant accessory could be all you need to add life to your boring office wardrobe. Style it with loosely tucked in white blouse, tan or brown belt to compliment the aesthetic, and finish off with weel fitted trousers, or jeans depending on how formal you want your look to be. In case you want to flaunt your femininity, pair this outfit with a pencil skirt or a long flowing dress. Add a dash of elegance with a black bag, and you’re ready to rule!

A classy lady demands a classy outfit. If you’re all about the finer things in life, style your outfit with a light-colored or pastel pair of pants, a cheetah printed blouse and loosely front-tuck your blouse for a polished and sophisticated look. Opt for neutral colors to avoid clashing with your animal prints. Co-ordinate your bag and shoes to look highly stylized and get ready to receive endless compliments!

Animal print shirt dresses can be tricky to wear if you don’t style them right. There is a fine line between looking like you’re trying too hard and hardly trying. Look effortless by not overdoing this look, and keeping it simple with a t-shirt and minimal accessories. We suggest you layer it with a plain t-shirt to create a look which is fun and utilitarian at the same time. This Parisian-chic inspired look can be worn to all kinds of events, formal or otherwise. Style this cute look with layered necklaces, a dark-toned bag and voila! You have a classy yet vibrant ensemble to rock.

# Leopard Print dress for a casual look

Leopard prints make for great naturalistic, soft and organic-looking pieces to wear. They also look great styled next to stripes, plaids, polka dots or graphic prints. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can opt to wear these for a day look. If you’re one for minimalism, then make sure you are not mixing any prints. Perfect for a weekend getaway, style this look with white sneakers.

Animal prints can prove to be one of the most striking and fun prints to wear, especially for the holiday season. Mix and match your ensemble with minimal and neutral colors to bring out the vibrancy of these animal prints. Style your outfits with block-printed bags to finish your look, and add sneakers, kitten heels or boots to suit the occasion.
