You may have noticed a certain animal print making a comeback in a major way. Leopard is back and it’s now completely normal to wear as part of your everyday look, work included. It kind of makes you feel like you’re a 90s off-duty super model out in the city. One leopard skirt in particular, the Realisation Par Naomi Skirt, nearly broke the internet this summer. The reason for its popularity may be that it’s so simple yet so versatile and statement-making. I can remember a time circa middle school (hello leopard platform slides from Steve Madden) when all I wanted to wear was leopard. I then stayed away for years, until I saw this skirt. It looks so effortless yet instantly gives off a stylish vibe.
Most importantly, it’s easy to style and can be worn all winter long. I love it dressed up with a black sweater and mules. However, there is something to be said about wearing it with sneakers and a plain white t-shirt, which I plan on doing. The key is you want it to hit slightly below your knee and have a neutral background. It’s my new go-to for every occasion-slinky and sexy for a night out or trendy with sneakers for a daytime look.
