Leopard print is nothing new to this winter’s clothes line up but animal print jeans are a fresh and way of wearing the trend. The muted tone of these jeans makes them a more appealing way of wearing this print which can often scare people off.
See how to wear Leopard Print Jeans with our three styling suggestions:
1. Option 1: With flats and a t-shirt
We like these jeans for a daytime look best. Carine Roitfeld (pictured far right) was spotted wearing the Leopard Stiletto jeans by Current/Elliott (€245 online and at Brown Thomas) in relaxed way with her favourite tee and flats, whilst visiting friends in LA. While Roitfeld’s look is summer centric, you can wear this option in cold weather too by adding ballet pumps and blazer.
2. Option 2: To contrast an all black outfit
While Current Elliott may be the celeb choice, Miss Selfridge’s leopard print skinny jeans make the perfect contrast to an otherwise all black outfit. They are also in Zara but close to sold out by now.
Model Hilary Rhoda (pictured far left) wears hers with a leather belt, a black shirt and blazer paired and a pair of Isabel Marant pointy heels. She tops it off with a camel coloured scarf, picking up the same base colour as her jeans.
3. Option 3: With heels
Make like Isla Fischer (pictured) and add heels and a leather jacket for an evening look.
Style tip: Be sure that your skinny jeans are the correct “skinny” fit. I’ve made the mistake before of buying them in a size up from my usual size (think I was having a fat day!) and they just look wrong!
The same tips apply for any kind style of animal print jeans – not just leopard print. Just remember that the other pieces of clothing shouldn’t take away from the jeans themselves!
