Animal prints are in this season and I am
Here. For. It.
I’ve always been a big fan of planning an outfit around a leopard print flat for the office, so I’m ecstatic that it’s on trend this Fall.
I was purchasing items for my new postpartum wardrobe and came across this super chic, lightweight leopard print sweater from Loft. Not only is it the perfect piece for layering, it makes a statement on its own. Even better? It’s so lightweight that you could wear it in both the warmer and cooler seasons. It’s the perfect addition to a capsule wardrobe as you could wear it year round.
In terms of a short sleeve top, the sleeves are slightly longer than normal and end about midway between the shoulder and the elbow. It fits true to size, and it has a relatively loose fit–perfect for postpartum mamas!
Casual Day Look
For a casual look, pair this top with the following staple bottoms:
- Black Leggings
- Distressed Black Denim
In cooler weather, top the sweater with a fave jacket:
- Jean Jacket
- Leather Jacket
- Military Jacket
To complete the look, add your favorite pair of sneaks. Personally, I think you can’t go wrong with a pair of simple, white chucks.
Casual Work Look
Since this sweater is lightweight, it’s perfect for layering. You won’t get any of the bulk you normally would with a typical sweater. Pair this cheetah print top with:
- Mid-Length Cardigan
- Solid, Chunky Knit Cardigan
To serve as a neutral base, throw on a pair of black jeggings for both style and comfort.
To complete the look, select a pair of solid shoes like:
- Nude Loafers
- Black Flats
- Nude or Black Pumps
Dressed-Up Casual Look
Everyone loves a good day-to-night look. To create a vibe that works for both, throw a black boyfriend blazer over the cheetah print sweater and select a nice, dark blue denim as a bottom.
For an outfit pop, wear a chic watch coupled with accent bracelets like:
- Victoria Emerson Wrap Bracelets
- Chunky Metallic Bracelets
To finish the look, and add a bit of texture, select a pair of neutral mules. I’m obsessed with this woven pair from Target.
