I bought these leopard print shorts awhile ago, remember? Every time I wear them I get compliments that go something like this:
”Those are fabulous! I could never wear them.”
I do not accept this turn of phrase. Of course you can wear them. Now if you don’t like leopard print or shorts for yourself, then that’s a different story, but please don’t accept that something is “too fabulous” for you. That’s just not true. So, here are some ways to wear leopard print shorts… or pants, or skirts, or snow pants. You know whatever.
First, please repeat after me: Leopard is a neutral. Neutrals go with everything. Ergo, Leopard goes with everything.
My personal favorite way to wear the shorts (though I look completely over it, forgive my apathetic model face) is with my chambray shirt and a neutral belt. Why chambray? Well, that’s a neutral too, so mixing all the neutrals is pretty awesome and also very safari.
I thought I’d try something a little different, and I’ve never really mixed leopard print with another print, so I thought this graphic floral would work. I don’t think I’m ready to mix two animal prints like Mindy, so my suggestion would be to find something in a contrasting color that’s a very different print. So stripes, florals, geometrics, and I think the only print I’d avoid (no questions asked) is a plaid. But, hey, I’m willing to go out looking like Punky Brewster so I’m a little more adventurous than some.
So what do you think? Can you wear leopard print shorts? I think you can!
