Trend Alert: Leopard Print (and 5 Easy Ways to Subtly Add It to Your Look)

Leopard is such a classic animal print, and has been around for ages, but in the last few years it has made a big resurgence and is absolutely everywhere. And although it’s so prominent these days, I think the average woman may still feel intimidated by this print, and feel that it’s a bit too sexy to wear in an everyday kind of way.

Well here’s the answer, it’s not. It’s a gorgeous print that any woman can and should wear confidently, and it can easily fit into any woman’s wardrobe (in fact, check out Maegan’s 11 Ways To Wear a Leopard Blouse). But if you’re still feeling nervous about it, here are five easy ways to subtly incorporate leopard print into your look.
