Leopard by Ganni: Surprisingly Neutral, Styled 3 Ways

If there is one pattern that never goes out of style, season after season, it would have to be the versatile and timeless leopard print. Well Ganni strikes again with another fabulous leopard print article of clothing, this time in a fluid, stretch-silk skirt. It has a knotted front to resemble a very flattering wrap style, and let me tell you, this looked so adorable on our model and friend, Penelope, that we wanted to show you how to wear it three different ways.

The great thing about anything leopard is that it acts as a neutral. There are so many fun ways to style leopard — that’s the exciting part. Many women come to us and say “oh, I can only wear black with leopard. Let me tell you now: nope! You are wrong my friend. Think as them as jeans, and let the ideas come to you. Sneakers and a white tee paired with a leather jacket? Suddenly you are a Parisian! Or let’s pair it with a pop of color and make it work-appropriate with pointy-toed black heels. Lastly, here’s that black top for you, but let’s do something unexpected and throw in mustard yellow feather shoes. Voila!

Can you tell we had fun with this shoot? For more inspiration and outfit ideas you can always email me at Katie.Newell@theshoehive.com. This is one of my favorite parts of the job, 🙂
