Dress like a star: Green leopard


Animal prints come and go, but a nice leopard will never go out of style. It is one of the most stylish and sexy prints, but it can be quite tricky to pull off. In this case, the line between sexy and embarassing is really thin. I´m convinced that "use with caution" is the best advice to follow. Don´t go over the top, don´t mix leopard with another leopard and when it comes to accessories, stick to one color.



Rose Byrne has proved that when done right, even an emerald green leopard print can look chic and classy. I simply can´t get enough of her beautiful D&G dress and if I could, I would wear it immediately! Long sleeves and no cleavage are definitely a great choice: when it comes to leopard, flaunting your body should never be an option! A pair of black patent peep toe shoes, a belt that accentuates your waist and a cute charm necklace is all you need to look perfect! I´m obsessed!

  13. She looks beautiful in this outfit. Although, I don't think I'd be brave enough to wear an animal or leopard print.

    Cheers!

  16. leopard can go well with other patterns, other prints, depending on the size and proportions (leopard scarf with striped top). when you add a color to the mix, like green, your lead way with interplay becomes diminished.

  28. I love leopard print, but I always prefer getting the "natural" color ones. This green dress, however, is fabulous! Also, the affordable version is super cute, too! Thanks for sharing. - Carla
