In the cyclical nature of fashion, it is a fact that leopard prints will rise to the top of the fashion foray every few seasons. Every two to three years, fall will arrive and you’ll notice a preponderance of spots in your favorite boutique or department store. This year, the fashion magazines are focusing on leopard accessories – mainly footwear and handbags – and leopard coats.
I’m crazy, you say? I would never lead you astray, dear readers. And, if you dont believe me, some of my very favorite bloggers, The Glamourai, Cupcakes & Cashmere, and D.C.’s own local fashion guru, Capitol Hill Style, also reported on the trend.
Per usual, we bitches love our shoes. In a wise move of foresight, I’ve kept my lovely calf-hair leopard peep-toe pumps in my closet through many seasons and many moves, often to collect dust. Well, I’ve dusted them off (quite literally) because leopard is back (again). If you were not so lucky, here are our footwear faves.
Whether it’s pumps, peep toes, booties, wedges, or ballet flats that you prefer, you can have your leopard however you want it. Tory Burch’s iconic reva ballet flat has also gone spotted. Even the dreaded clog <gasp> has been made-over in leopard courtesy of Coach.
