Leopard Print? Classy or Trashy? You Decide!
Written By: Va Va Voom (Katrina)
So, leopard print is one of those tricky trends that goes in and out of style faster than the weather changes. From leopard platform shoes to leopard pashminas to leopard print nail polish, we've seen it all! Now how do we apply this to our wardrobe?

The key word here is "moderation." Leopard print should be done only once a week (unless it's something as simple as a scarf) and only one item of clothing or accessory. For example, plain black dress, jazz it up with leopard platform shoes. Or jeans and a crisp white fitted-blouse, throw on a leopard print scarf. My dear Ladies, let's never, ever load on the leopard print unless you want to look like the cougar type! You better be prepared to ooze of confidence with such daring attire!
The hardest leopard prints to wear are the trench coats or cocktail dress that have the print in its interiority. These can only and undoubtably be worn with confidence! If you try on a solid leopard print dress and you can't shake it, take it off, you don't deserve to wear it. Only the most confident are fashionably allowed to grace their bodies with this fabulous print.
But remember ladies only once a week and one item on that day; you don't want to be mistaken for a jersey girl, unless you are one and then work it! ;)
