14 Fun Ways to Add Leopard Print to Any Look

How to pull off fall's latest trend from head-to-toe

For an easy to way jazz up your wardrobe, consider leopard print. Yes, yes, I know—it’s been pilloried to the moon and back, thanks to overwrought use in decades past. But here’s the thing: Leopard print is decidedly, unambiguously cool now. (After all, the ’80s are back in full swing.) Whether you’re looking to inject some spark into an everyday outfit with a well-chosen accessory or looking to make the pattern a cornerstone on a head-to-toe getup, leopard print can do it all. All it requires is an open mind, a careful selection, and—in a marked departure from the fashion decisions of the ’80s—a little restraint. Here’s how to pull it off.
