Cat’s Out of the Bag: The Neutral Print You Need in Your Wardrobe

By: Meredith Welborn

Long gone are the days of neutrals including only black, white, and gray. Whether it’s on your feet, on your shoulders, or around your waist, this print will turn your otherwise bland outfits into the envy of any Instagram blogger.

Leopard print. Or, “every women’s secret wardrobe weapon,” as Harper’s Bazaar likes to call it. American women’s obsession with this pattern is nothing new. It is feminine, timeless, and has the ability to make any women feel instantly more stylish and glamorous. However, the way women are wearing it is more innovative than ever. Leopard print was previously looked at as a statement pattern, but women of the 21st century felt a little differently. Because this print includes neutral colors, it can be worn just as easily as black.

Because this print can work as a neutral, it can be layered with other patterns! Try layering it with a flannel, a graphic tee, or a floral.
