Denim and Leopard

Monday morning when I went into my closet to get dressed I knew I wanted to wear something with a leopard print. I only own a sweater and a couple of scarves, so the sweater won out!
 At first I couldn't decide how to wear this sweater,
 so I looked at my inspiration board and saw a picture of a sweater with a button down underneath,
 sleeves rolled up and shirt tails hanging out.
 Voila! My outfit was born.
I really like the look of leopard and denim,
but don't see it put together that often.
 I am out to change that!
I added hints of red with my jewelry and paired black boots with all of that brown for some contrast.
What do you like to pair leopard print with?
How much of it do you own?

I own, maybe too much leopard print, haha.
But I love this look, and I like paring leopard and chambray together as well!

Kayla and I own an arsenal of leopard print. Everything under the sun! It's quite an addiction, lol!

I like to pair leopard with brights like colored denim, reds, unexpecting colors. It really matches with everything! I just did it with stripes not too long ago. Heather

Love the leopard and denim. I'll definitely copy that!

I love the blue with the leopard. The boots are fantastic to.

You did it perfectly. That's a great outfit. I love leopard too. I have way too much. Too much stripes and too much leopard. Oh well.

Really, really cute...good job! I have on leopard today and it will be on my site tomorrow...it really is timeless!

Kristin said...

I own quite a bit of leopard. You reminded me that I need to bust out my leopard cardi soon. Love yours!

I have been seeing a lot of the denim/leopard combination lately and not just of the denim jeans and leopard-print top variety. I like the way you structured this outfit. It is different, but it isn't crazy different.

LOVE it!! I don't have enough leopard! LOL I've started wearing my leopard flats with everything. I've decided they are neutral!

I love it! Leopard and denim looks great!

I have a leopard blouse, but I've never worn it with denim. I also have a leopard maxi skirt... I think people give me funny looks when I wear it.

Yay for leopard!

This outfit is awesome Brett! I love the sweater and the boots, and I own a lot of leopard! I actually have a dolce and gabbana signature leopard cocktail dress...yup!

Wendy said...

I don't own nearly as much leopard print ... it's a shirt, a scarf and a pair of shoes. I may well add more for our next winter season ... a cute cardigan and sweater would be great. I love the outfit, I think it looks fabulous with the jeans (I think I wore my leopard shirt with jeans) and the red ... I love red with leopard print.

Love this with the shirt!

I have a HUGE scarf that I've been using as a neck piece, a movie blanket, and a fall jacket. It's purple and pink leopard. Not nearly as obnoxious as it sounds. lol

You look incredible in leopard print Brett! I love how you paired it with denim and kept the rest of the look sleek in black. I own a few leopard print pieces- it's my favourite print for sure!

Love the animal print with the denim top underneath!
