Loving Lately: Leopard Skinnies

My white pants did not photograph as well as I had hoped.  (and neither did my pale face).  However, I did figure out how to adjust the white balance on my camera, so look forward to less washed out photos here.
Anyway, on to the real point of this post: Leopard Print Skinnies.  I am so glad that this is a thing now, because leopard is my neutral.  If you're really scared of this trend or don't want a "Look at Me" sign on your rump, go for the more subtle leopard print (gray on white like mine or black on gray).  However, if you're brave and want some attention drawn to your fabulous booty, go bold with pink leopard or the traditional tan, black and orange.
However, I think with anything animal print, you run the risk of looking like a crazy nursing home resident.  So, when you're wearing the leopard print pants, KEEP IT SIMPLE.  Don't add a leopard print top.  That is not appropriate pattern mixing.  Go for some basics like a plain blazer, sweater, or chambray shirt.  Let the leopard pants do the talking.  If you're dying to pattern mix, try a smaller pattern, like a polka dot or striped scarf.  If a scarf isn't exciting enough for you, add a statement necklace to jazz up the plain top.
