Mixing Stripes, Ruffles and Leopard Print!

Stripes, Ruffles AND Leopard Print?

This outfit sounds like a really complicated (and frankly fussy) combination but, in reality, this kind of look is SO simple to put together.

Leopard print always adds a little 'something' to any outfit.
You may even have heard that leopard print is considered a 'neutral' (by some) and I tend to agree!

Leopard can be a statement, but it is also capable of adapting itself to any situation.
Leopard print can team successfully with just about anything.
It's all in the attitude!

{See THIS POST about ways to incorporate a little Leopard print into your look.}

This work outfit was easy to throw on with almost no thought, and even less time!
The blouse has it's lovely leopardy-ness (PLUS some ruffles) so does all of the work for this outfit.
Teaming the leopard blouse with a striped pencil skirt made for a more interesting contrast than plain black.

A light grey bag picked out the pale stripe in the skirt and silver earrings kept things light.
Pewter patent shoes, and red toes, finished things off nicely!
