NYFW- Leopard is the new basic?

I love New York Fashion Week, and keep seeing leopard.  They (I have no idea who 'they' actually are) say that leopard is the new basic.  I love me some leopard print and (cringe) Betsey Johnson actually makes a few cute leopard print things (sorry to all who love Betsey Johnson, she is not my cup of tea!)  Here are a few cute things to add to your fall closet.  So I guess instead of reaching for black we should now reach for leopard!
Apt. 9 at ShopStyle
For so cheap, it's a great way to add a little leopard!

Marc by Marc Jacobs at ShopStyle
I think I am in love!

Ralph Lauren at ShopStyle
So cute!

Ann Taylor at ShopStyle
Perfect little accessory!

Anthropologie at ShopStyle
Even Anthro is on board!

Kate Hill at ShopStyle
This might be a better 'basic'!

You could always pick up a few accessories like thisthis, or this!!

PS- next week we will look at the new "preppy" trend that seems to be everywhere!!!


  1. Do not forget the J Crew leopard ballet flats & belt in 2 colours!


    I was never a fan of the animal print, but it is starting to grow on me. :)

  2. I like leopard! I have a blazer that is leopard I got last year. Always get compliments. All right, what did you get from the sale???

  3. I'm loving the leopard trend! I recently thrifted a pair of leopard flats and a skinny leopard belt. P.S. I don't love Betsy Johnson either, although I was tempted to buy some printed knee highs of hers last week... :)

  4. LOVE, love, LOVE this print. I have a purse and heels in leopard print that are rockin. Love that tank too.

  5. Hmmm... have to see if I can find some leopard to make sure I'm 'in'! =)

  6. I adore leopard prints. Love it, love it, love it. So much. I'm excited about this!

  7. I can't help but love the leopard too - I am currently on the search for a pair of leopard flats!

  8. Hmmm, maybe the belt or shoes, but leopard is one trend I don't think I'll be adding much of to my closet - I did like J.Crew's and Lofts zebra pieces not too long ago though. I've always felt a bit too conservative to pull off even the most tastefully done animal prints.

  9. i am not really into animal prints.
    but i really like that belt.
    i think just a little leopard here and there i could handle.

  10. I've noticed the "leopard" trend! I'm not sure if I like it or not...I posted a recent outfit with the ONLY leopard print item I own! LOL! Funny! I actually really like the Anthropologie cardigan! The flower/leaporad combination is acutally adorable!
    "Encouraging young ladies to dress in modest, Godly, feminine fashion."

  11. I love leopard print! Well, I really just love animal print. I think I wear it at least once a week.

  12. I love me a small pop of leopard but when it comes to larger pieces, I am very picky. It is purely out of fear that I will look like I am about to get on a tour bus headed for a local casino.

    p.s. I do love that Anthro cardi!

  13. LOVE the animal print....I could do one piece at a time....but not an entire outfit, lol...:)
