1 Trend 3 Ways - Leopard Print Shoes

As promised, I took some pictures of my leopard print shoes tonight. Instead of just posting the shoes, I thought I'd have fun with this, I bring you...

1 Trend 3 Ways - Leopard Print Shoes

Leopard print (and almost any other animal print) is sexy all by itself. Thus, if you want to pull off this look without looking slutty, be sure to balance the sexiness of the print with something classy in your ensemble.

1. LBD - Date Appropriate

2. All-black with a kick - Night Appropriate

The sexiness of the print, along with the short shorts are balanced with a 3/4 sleeve-length sweater. I added some fun to the outfit with a wide, red, patent leather belt, though I'm probably more likely to sport this look sans belt.

3. Something funky - Work Appropriate

I wanted to do an outfit that I wouldn't normally wear. I know that sounds crazy because I obviously own all these clothes, but I just bought this top and wanted to play! The slim cut of the skirt goes well with the fullness of the top. An embellished black belt finishes the outfit.

You've put together one of the nicest shorts-looks I've seen. I'm a big fan of the Banana Republic blouse too. It's a classic.
