Candid: How to Wear Leopard

Leopard Print Scarf
This woman superbly demonstrates that even the classiest ladies can rock leopard print. It’s easiest to incorporate this high-energy print into a look on accessory pieces like scarves. We all know how tricky leopard-print dresses, cardigans, and pants can be to wear. Next to the face leopard prints only work in non-natural colors like blues and pinks because yellows are not flattering next to the face. That’s why natural brown and yellow leopard prints are most popular on belts and shoes.

Pinks will draw out the natural colors in the face without highlighting zits (as reds sometimes can). You can see here how the pale shades of pink in this woman’s scarf highlight her rosy cheeks and pink lips without overpowering her. She’s already drop dead gorgeous but her scarf is achieving the goal of all accessory pieces; to add to a look, not subtract.

Prova is the undisputed master of the investment leopard print scarf. In Chicago you can find them only at Ikram. In New York they are sold only at Bergdorf Goodman and Kirna Zabete. 

Here are some fantastic pink leopard print scarves I found at a range of price points. This is also the perfect holiday gift for your moms, co-workers, sisters, friends, and girlfriends.
