Plaid Cropped Pants with a Dash of Leopard

I remember the first time I heard that whole “animal print is a neutral” thing. I’m pretty sure I laughed it off, thinking that it would never be my fashion mantra. And maybe I’m still not 100% on board with it (because I’m not sure it always works), but I am embracing it a whole lot more than I used to. Earlier this week I was mixing stripes, floral and leopard. Today, it’s all about leopard and plaid together.DSC_1220-001

On paper maybe plaid and leopard print don’t sound like they’d play nice together, but they do. The key with this outfit is that the rest of the pieces don’t compete. Chambray and a cream sweater make a nice, clean background for the prints.dark rinse chambray layered with tipi sweater j.crewgold an green spiked statement necklace crops in tartan plaid j.crewlayer chambray for fallleopard print smoking loafersmix leopard print and plaidTop: J.Crew, Sweater: J.Crew, Pants: J.Crew (similar), Shoes: Steve Madden, Necklace: Boutique find (similar), Watch: Movado, Bracelet: Stella & Dot Gilded Bangle

    This has to be one of my favorite outfits of yours lately! I agree–animal print (or prints in general) aren’t ALWAYS as versatile as neutrals, but they can work really well sometimes!

    How fun! You’ve inspired me to try mixing plaid with leopard–at least maybe a shirt and flats for now–that’s a start. 🙂 Love your layers and bling too!

    I love how you mixed Plaid with Leopard and Chambray. Ivory Sweaters, Chambray Shirts & Leopard Loafers are proving to be so versatile, aren’t they? I want a pair of Loafers like those. I love yours. =)
