Now that the crisp cold days of winter are (hopefully) behind us, it is time to jump headfirst into spring fashion—whether that means revamping your entire closet, picking out a few key pieces, or simply trying out one new trend. No matter which plan of attack you choose, we suggest you pick up some leopard footwear. Thanks to notable brands such as Christian Dior and Haider Ackermann, not to mention top tastemakers like Olivia Palermo and Zoe Saldana, leopard footwear is having a major style moment! Read on for all the need-to-know details and make sure you take notes as there is plenty of inspiration in today’s Accessory Report.
As a modern girl-on-the-go, you know that a comfortable yet chic ensemble is essential for a day of retail therapy, which is why we love this look from actress/singer Mandy Moore. Her decidedly unfussy ensemble—a leather jacket, cropped jeans, and leopard sandals—has a casual rock and roll vibe that feels understated but cool. For a similar look, layer BB Dakota’s Damon Leather Jacket ($225) over a white tee, before adding a pair of Seven7’s Denim Capri Jeans ($45). To finish, choose between Givenchy’s Gladiator Sandals ($525) and Sam Edelman’s Grenna Safari Sandals ($98).
We always look forward to seeing what Olivia Palermo wears, and the ensemble she put together for a show at London Fashion Week last month was no exception. We love Olivia’s gold dress and knitted blazer—they are utterly chic—but we are particularly smitten with her leopard booties. They give the outfit a surprising twist and a little edge. To try this look, pick up See By Chloe’s Short Dress ($109) or Madewell’s Goldrush Sweaterdress ($59.99) and pair it with Milly’s Rialto Tulle Trim Cardigan ($437.25) and Elizabeth & James’s Lilly Leopard Print Calf Hair Booties ($350).
Georgia May Jagger
If you love experimenting with color and prints, make sure you look to up-and-coming model Georgia May Jagger for inspiration. In October, Georgia was spotted at a cocktail party in London wearing a red and pink lace dress and chunky leopard heels. Not only does Georgia’s ensemble instantly catch the eye, but it feels really fresh and is perfectly fashion-forward. To create a similarly stylish outfit, grab Oasis’s Shift Dress ($80.69) or PF Paola Frani’s Short Dress ($297). Then, simply add a pair of Beverly Feldman’s Indie Sandals ($122.50) and you are ready to go!
Actress Zoe Saldana always impresses us on the red carpet, so we aren’t surprised to see she also has plenty of off-duty panache. Proof? Earlier this month, Zoe attended an event in West Hollywood wearing a khaki green leather jacket, skinny jeans, and leopard platform pumps. Her ensemble is stylish but simple, which is why we love her leopard pumps—they give the outfit a playfully chic twist. For a similar look, pair Veda’s Max Classic Leather Jacket ($737) or BB Dakota’s Avery Jacket ($192) with BDG’s Cigarette High-Rise Jeans ($58) and Enigma’s Hh132 Platform Pumps ($76.95).
