Life & Style

Okay, so at this point you know that animal print and specifically leopard print, is ALL the rage. And if you didn’t know, I’m here to get you up under that rock and let you know that it’s ALL the rage.

I’m bringing back one of my favorite series–how to style one piece three different ways! On this week’s episode, I’m featuring my new favorite leopard print skirt from Loft!

This skirt is the PERFECT leopard print skirt. It’s lightweight, is super flattering and soft, and the most comfortable skirt to wear during the day or night.  It looks like sizes are low so here are some other fun options for a leopard print skirt:

Outfit #1: The Work-Wear Look

At this point, you should all know that I am in LOVE with layering.  Just call me the Queen of Layers, okay? I took my trusted white button down and layered it with a khaki colored vest. Paired it with my pointed slingback shoes and you’ve got the cutest, most polished office look! Both of these pieces are old, but you can definitely recreate this look with pieces from this season!

What I’m Wearing:

Outfit #2: Casual but Classy

This outfit could easily be dressed up with a pair of heels or booties, but I chose to rock my white sneakers! I’m loving the flowy look of dresses and skirts paired with a casual sneaker. It’s classy and casual at the same time– and not to mention COMFY! The 3 C’s! My top here is from last year, but I’m linking some similar items!

Outfit #3: Cool and Casual

I love how versatile graphic tees are! I just recently started styling them and I can’t get enough! This is one of the two that I own and I love the pop of mustard yellow against the brown leopard print! I paired it with some old suede booties from Old Navy and of course my trusted oversized jean jacket! All of my items are also old so I’ve linked below some similar options! I’ve been pushing myself to create outfits using the clothes I already have so you will be seeing a lot of restyled pieces!

And there you have it! One skirt, three ways! My favorite thing to do is buy quality pieces and style them in different ways so that you can get more bang for your buck! I’m all about maximizing your wardrobe and ensuring that the pieces you buy get multiple wears! Let me know in the comments which outfit you like best and what I should style next!
