It takes a certain amount of guts to wear a leopard print dress. You need to be prepared for turning heads when crossing the street. Even in Paris during Fashion Week. Why is that? Leopard print is both beautiful and timeless when worn right. Is it the fatal attraction? The bestial? The flirting with the boundaries of tacky? I’m not sure, but it intrigues me. Leopard print has been present on the catwalk since the fifties. Coming and going and this time coming back around again.
I loved this simple interpretation of Michael by Michael Kors: put it on jersey and give the dress a beautiful cut. Nothing tacky. Just the right amount of poof when you walk, goes up that dress. I combined it with my exuberant satin volume coat by COS, my ultimate favorite. My new found perfect autumn boots by & Other Stories, a pair of perfect black Wolford tights, my Delvaux X-ray and a pair of stand-out Komono sunglasses. All dressed in leopard and black, feeling on top of the world. Cause that’s what leopard does for a girl: it empowers you.
