Can you believe it is almost mid-October? Yes, the holiday season is coming and will soon be upon us! As promised, I am shopping for some holiday wardrobe additions so that you can be ready before all the craziness hits! (Wonderful holiday craziness, of course!) To get you started, I am sharing three ways to style a leopard pleated skirt.
Leopard and all things animal prints are always in style, but these prints are having a BIG moment right now! You can see leopard pieces of all kinds as part of so many looks. And who doesn’t like a touch of it here or there? Or everywhere?!
The pleated leopard skirt for date night
This pleated leopard skirt was such an amazing find!! The fabric is a tulle-like fabric with lots of movement, which is so pretty in a skirt. It’s a midi length and is easy to wear with an elastic waist. Love it! This is the kind of skirt you can style anytime and it will be a great piece for your holiday wardrobe. It is incredibly inexpensive and will probably go fast, so if you like it, grab it quickly!
The beauty of a leopard print is that it’s so easy to style! You can wear it with almost any color. I am partial to styling it with red like this deep, almost-burgundy color. The top was from Stitch Fix. I styled it last Christmas in this post. While this version of slit shoulder isn’t trending at present, it’s still a great look for evening. So, if you have one or two of this style, pull them out of your closet and enjoy! Since I only buy things I like, I wear them I tend to keep and wear them for a long time!
The pleated leopard skirt as a casual look
Now that I see these photos, I’m not so sure this look works for casual occasions only! It could also be worn for work or even a casual party.
Riding boots are always in style in cool weather, and they are one of those purchases you can wear for a number of years. A blogger friend of mine refers to wearability by the “price-performance ratio.” That means if you can get lots of wear out of a piece, making it a “low cost-per-wear” item, you’ve made a smart purchase. Riding boots or any other good pair of boots are a low-cost-per wear item as you can pull them out season after season and they are always appropriate.
A figure-skimming sweater or turtleneck gives a nice contrast to the pleated skirt. With a pleated skirt, you do need to give definition to your waistline, as the pleats add bulk at the waist. While that isn’t necessary for everyone, it’s definitely the case for me! Lol!
The pleated leopard skirt for workwear
Leopard looks amazing with denim, right? So, if your dress code at work allows denim (I actually worked at a few school district offices that didn’t allow it!! Crazy, right? Especially knowing what we pay for quality denim!), a simple denim shirt looks great under a blazer or sweater. The one I’m styling is a short sleeve purchase from Target that is no longer available, but I’ve shared a cute long-sleeve shirt below that would work well.
I debated whether to style this outfit with a blazer or a sweater and decided the sweater would be a good choice for change. This cocoon sweater is lightweight yet warm and is fairly reasonable. I often styled sweaters for a little more casual look at the office.
You can see the progression from evening to night in these photos! Haha! It’s starting to get dark earlier and earlier every night and we will have to start earlier!
