Outfit of the Day | Leopard Print is a Neutral Color

leopard print skirt

For many women, a little black dress is a closet essential. I feel the same way about a leopard print pencil skirt. I need to have one in my wardrobe.

In my opinion, just like black, leopard print is a neutral colour. It’s made up of colours that are neutral such as black, and shades of brown.

There’s not much you can’t pair with a leopard skirt because pretty much every solid color goes with it. Things start to get complicated when leopard print is paired with other prints, although I believe it can be done (think Solange). In this outfit of the day post, I paired my skirt with two solid colours: black and tomato red.

The skirt along with the black high low top (that you may remember from my 22nd birthday outfit post) are both are from forever21.com.

The good thing about leopard print is that it can never be upstaged so adding a pop of color will not shift the focal point away from the skirt. I paired the outfit with some orange key-hole pumps that I bought from charlotterusse.com about a year ago. Similar pairs can be found hereherehere, here, here, here, and here.

For jewelry, I kept it simple with a black and white bracelet from forever21.com, a 3-in-1 necklace, and a few hand chains that are from asos.com. (Photography by The F Dot Life)
