Here we go again–another leopard print?! YES! The newest trend in animal prints, however, is designing them in unusual colors, as in this red leopard sweater outfit. Once again, nature makes the most amazing designs, and art imitates life!
Speaking of art, I love the animal-inspired print of this sweater. The leopard spots really pop on the red background, don’t they?
Sweater Weather: The Red Leopard Sweater Outfit
The best part of fall styling starts with a sweater. A sweater can so easily form the basis of a super casual outfit, a slightly dressed-up date night look, or even a professional outfit. What you wear it with, whether it be pants or a skirt, jeans or shorts, can entirely change the look. Of course, accessories like jewelry, hats, bags, and shoes are also responsible for changing the look and feel of a sweater outfit.
While I already have quite a few animal-print fashion pieces in my wardrobe (see the post, How We Wear Animal Motifs), I couldn’t resist adding this red leopard sweater to my “collection.” First of all, red provides a great contrast to a leopard print as you’ll see in the outfits below.
Here is a slightly dressier version of a red leopard top outfit:
The opposite works just as well. Here you can see a leopard-print skirt and red top that shows the dramatic contrast:
Today’s sweater has a darker red background that goes with lots of reds in darker shades like maroon and burgundy.
As you can see here, for this red leopard sweater outfit, I’ve styled it with a uniquely-styled jean and white booties and changed up the look with a tassel necklace.
This sweater is super soft and cozy, making it perfect for a cool Autumn day! Although we’ve had fairly warm fall days, our nights turn pretty chilly, so a sweater like this is a perfect solution! While my usual size is small, I ordered this in medium for a loose, comfy fit.
These split-hem jeans are an old favorite. I first styled them in the post, Split Hem Jeans Outfit. The front seam draws the eye up and down helping to create a longer silhouette. A needed feature for me! Lol! The gray color is perfect for fall as it goes with so many things. I’ve linked a similar pair, from AG and on sale, below.
OK, have you bought a pair of white boots or booties yet? Yes, they do bring to mind the go-go boots that some of us may remember. But who didn’t love those, right? Haha! These kitten heeled booties are stylish yet still easy to wear with the low heel.
To give the look a little polish and to add a long line to the top, I added a tassel necklace and earrings with a little bling. You could easily change out the jeans for a pair of tailored slacks or a pencil skirt for a super cute work outfit.
However, this red leopard sweater outfit would look just as cute with white sneakers and jeans for an adorable fall casual look!
