How to Wear Leopard Print & Stripes
Hi friends! TGIF! I’ve got a casual outfit today that combines some of my favorite fall favorites — a utility jacket, leopard print and stripes.
My jacket is by Hinge. I bought it late last winter, and it sold out, but they have a new version this year for $99. I think I like it better than mine because they replaced those flap pockets on the chest with flatter pockets. Some of us don’t need any more bulk in that area! Ha!
I also really like this one by Caslon for $89, and BP. has this one for $69. A utility jacket is a workhorse in your fall wardrobe. It pairs so well with jeans and a tee, but you can also throw it on over a dress, and when it gets colder, a lightweight sweater.
I like how this one has the drawstring in the waist and hangs slightly longer in the back than in the front.
Underneath I’m wearing a navy and white striped tee. This one is by Paige, and it’s on the pricier side, but I’m learning with t-shirts, I look so much better in the ones that are thinner and have a nice drape. They lay so much nicer on us curvy girls, so I’ve invested in a few quality tees that I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of. This one is actually linen. Fit-wise, it runs a bit big. I sized down to a small, and it fits perfectly.
I didn’t think to get a picture without my jacket, but you can see it here on Instagram paired with a jean skirt. (P.S. LOVE that jean skirt too!!! Flattering and very comfortable. I picked it up during the #NSale.)
For a less expensive stripe tee, I love this contrast stripe V-neck at Gap.
I’m carrying the Sole Society satchel again. It’s a great price point at $59. I love how it compliments the leopard flats and creates a pleasing color contrast against the olive green and denim.
These are my DL1961 Florence skinny jeans. I picked them up on sale a few years ago, and they are one of my go-to jeans in the fall and winter. They have a 30″ inseam, as opposed to the 29″ or 28″ inseams in my ankle jeans, and I prefer this length with ballet flats. I feel like they elongate the line of the leg and create a slimmer silhouette.
Leopard flats are a year-round staple in my wardrobe. I bought a pair last fall and wore them out, so I just purchased these Sam Edelman Felicia Flats because I like my nude ones so much. I wore them all day yesterday with cropped jeans and my black dolman jetsetter tee (which is currently on sale for $19.99!) It’s a great closet staple.
Add hoops, a pendant necklace, and a few bangles, and I’m good to go!
This is the type of casual outfit that I pretty much want to live in this time of year. I love the combination of colors and patterns. The nice thing is, it’s still cute without the jacket, so whether you’re outside or inside or back and forth, you look chic and put-together.
