forget the fact that i have a girl crush on alexa chung. who wouldn't? she's just so damn cool. but let's focus on the spots for an MTV minute, shall we? i love the way this leopard knit looks paired with the red cross-body bag. and are those vertical strips of sequins on that pencil skirt? meowwww! the point is, we're seeing spots all over the place these days.
i've long been into leopard. the vintage cape and hat belong to my friend mary ann.
found this amazing funnel neck tunic by mary jane protus in my collection of vintage VKs. this one is from 1989.
and this 1986 perry ellis animal print could have prowled the fall 2009 catwalk.
sure, you can treat it as a neutral, but there is nothing beige about a leopard print. some years back, i went to cannes during festival week. i thought i had seen it all the night we were walking back to our hotel at 4 am and spotted a man casually strolling down the croisette, butt naked. the next day, we saw the leopard ladies.
this mother and daughter duo apparently meander around the festival year after year spreading leopard love.
j. crew creative director jenna lyons says leopard worn below the waist cheapens the look. and much as i heart jenna, i may have to disagree. this girl looks effortlessly cool in her little white sneaks, bomber jacket and leopard leggings.
what about you? will you wear animal print tights or leggings this fall? or just a touch of animal chic like a belt or a hat? or do you prefer to keep your wild side under wraps?
