Are you into leopard print cardigan sweaters?
I´ve decided to do a blogging sprint of a particular topic each week here on creativefashionglee.com, which means that within a week my articles will focus on a specific trend, style or print. For the first week of the sprint, I will talk about leopard print.
So today´s blog post will examine some stylish ways to wear the leopard print cardigan with below hip length. This long length cardigan is so cozy and chic that whatever you´re wearing, the moment you throw one on, your outfit quickly levels up.
Interestingly, most of the fashion bloggers who´ve worn it for their outfit shoots wear the cardigan with jeans. Why? Because the drape of their long leopard print cardigan sweater becomes obvious when worn with jeans or any skinny trousers; it´s kinda dramatic. However, wearing it over a tight dress or skirt will also mimic the same dramatic effect.
Here are some style tips to consider:
1. Wear it with black and white.
If you have a beige and black leopard print cardigan, the print will really stand out when worn with black and white. Although a white t-shirt and black skinny jeans seem too simple for an outfit, if you add a belt with double gold O-Ring, your outfit suddenly looks like a million bucks.
2. Wear it over a black on black.
By keeping things tonal, you create an elongated vertical line. So if you throw on a long leopard cardigan over a black top and black skinny trousers, not only is the leopard print going to stand out, you will also appear taller.
You may choose to wear nude boots that matches the color of your print, but if you´re petite, go for black boots.
3. Keep the colors soft for a casual look.
For a more casual look, layer your leopard print cardigan sweaters with light colors. White t-shirt, faded jeans and nude ankle boots will keep things soft and casual. You may also opt for high waisted jeans to add a touch of vintage.
4. Chunky and Cozy.
This is not my favorite look but if you want to keep things comfy and cozy, you can actually layer a chunky leopard print cardigan sweater with a roomy dress. Pull things together with a pair of thigh high boots, preferably the fitted ones.
5. Toughen out some distressed jeans.
Fo running errands, I´d go for this look. I love wearing distressed boyfriend jeans but only the not too distressed. Military green has also become one of my favorite colors this past year so a green print long cardigan sweater is always welcome to join my fall wardrobe.
I´ve just noticed now as I write this article that the print on the cardigan is not leopard. However, this exact cardigan is also available in leopard print.
6. Wear a leopard print cardigan with an all-black.
This is similar to look #2, only that with this one, you´re going to wear your leopard print cardigan sweater with an all-black ensemble. This creates a really polished look and as I´ve said, it´s perfect for petite women.
7. Keep it cool and practical.
Yet another running errand outfit. To be honest, this is the kind of outfit that I´m wearing most of the time during cold seasons. This fits my lifestyle perfectly. I can hurriedly run to my son´s kindergarden to pick him up, and I can sit comfortably in front of my laptop to finish this blog post up.
8. Layer it over a fitted mini dress.
For a more dressy ensemble, you can layer your long leopard print cardigan over a black body con mini dress. What I like about this layering is, you keep things classy by leaving some things in the imagination while also looking very stylish. Of course a pair of pointed toe ankle boots and minimal accessories will complete the statement.
