3 Ways to Tame a Leopard

by cecylia on July 25, 2012

Last week the amazing peeps at Shopbop sent me this stunning leopard Equipment shirt for my birthday. Believe it or not, even though I adore this look, I actually don’t own any leopard print in my closet! Sacre ble! (Yes I’ve been hiding under a trend rock). So I thought to give myself a Leopard Challenge, to wear this new silk shirt 3 ways, from am to pm, or from sporty-to office-to dinner. Vintage shades and YSL heels worn throughout.

上个星期Shopbop的朋友们从美国寄给我一件生日礼物:这件Equipment 衬衫。其实我很喜欢豹纹但不敢思议的是我的衣柜里没有任何豹纹!所以今天我给自己个‘豹纹挑战’,怎么用三种不同方法穿这件衬衫。从白天到傍晚,休闲,上班到晚餐。三套服装都用了复古式太阳眼镜和YSL高跟鞋。

Outfit 1, SPORTY 休闲: Lisa Ho bomber jacket, Country Road trackpants (last won here, similar pair here), vintage necklace and cap found at home

Outfit 2, OFFICE上班: Jacket found at home (similar one here), vintage bolo tie & skirt (similar tweed versions here)

Outfit 3, DINNER 晚餐: Vintage earrings, clutch and dress (similar styles here)

How did I go? Which of the 3 is your favourite?

Wow I haven’t worn this dress since the night hubby proposed, 5 years ago! I love wearing strapless dresses over shirts and Tees. It adds warmth and quirkiness. So you see? Leopard print is actually extremely easy to wear and very versatile. It pairs beautifully with almost anything because of the colours involved. So if like me, you’re willing to give leopard a go, there are some delightful choices here. And here :) Happy Hump Day!

我已经五年没有穿这条裙子了,上一次是丈夫向我求婚的那天。我很喜欢将无肩裙子穿在T恤衬衫外面。能加暖,而且挺特别的。如果你原来觉得豹纹不容易穿,现在你因该被说服了吧!豹纹几乎与各种颜色都能搭配(因为它有黑色,白色和咖啡色),是个很棒的花纹。如果你还想参考一些豹纹的搭配法,这里这里有些奇特优美的选择. 祝你今天愉快!

I love your inventiveness with this shirt! Especially the last version with the strapless dress–genius! I practically live in my J Crew perfect shirt in leopard–but mostly with skinny jeans, so I’m not half as creative as you–ha! Happy belated birthday!

glad that you like the nouveau way of wearing the shirt- your version sounds so stylish too! Thank you!
