A Wild Classic

Whenever I feel a bit mysterious, a bit enigmatic, I slip into a trench like a film noir femme fatale. What's even better? A wild twist on a fashion classic.

(BCBGMaxazria trench; Zara top and shoes, available here; Fendi trousers and 2Jours bag, available here; Versace sunglasses)

When it comes to a bold print like leopard, I try to pare down the other elements in my outfit. Neutral shades and an elegant tote balance out the print, while a strappy heel and leather top stays consistent with the edgier aesthetic. What do you think about my outfit, and how do you style your trench? Thank you for reading, and stay tuned for upcoming projects!

  19. OMG Jess I love the purse and the shoes!!! They are a perfect match!! I love love love leopard/tiger or just animal prints in general, BUT find them slightly.... difficult to style as they tend to add a few years to my age...? You pulled it off perfectly tho! I am still struggling to find the right balance to styling them T.T ... So far i've began to style using scarfs... hopefully I can wear bold statement prints like you !!! <3

    1. Hi Kerynn! I think the best way to incorporate animal prints is to have that as the statement piece and leave the other colors neutral (so it's not too much on the eyes). Scarves are the perfect place to start! Hope I'll see your printed outfit soon ;)
