Leopard print? A neutral?! Whaaa?! Hear me out… but first, confession time: for years I shied away from leopard print as I always considered it would be too difficult to integrate into my wardrobe. I incorrectly assumed it would make too much of a statement when paired with my wardrobe’s subtle colour palette. But with animal print seemingly everywhere over the past few years, I decided to test the theory that leopard print can be worn as a neutral, given its warm and neutral tones. Well folks, it does. And if you’ve yet to shift your mindset about leopard print, I’m here to welcome you to the jungle.
While there are a fair few wardrobe items that come in leopard print, personally, it’s hard to pass up a shoe. It’s a subtle way to inject a bit of fun into your outfit and it instantly ups the cool factor of any simple ensemble. And if there’s one shoe style that you could never own too many of, it’s a pointed toe stiletto pump. My pump of choice? The Sarah Flint Perfect Pump. I’ve waxed poetic about how comfortable these heels are – especially for work, after years of destroying my feet in other, less considerate, designer heels. I won’t repeat myself again, but if you want to have a read of my in-depth review of the style and what makes them so comfortable, I’ll link it here. I’ve now got 5 pairs of Perfect Pumps, the newest addition being the Leopard Hair Calf. And being the predictable person that I am, I opted for the 85mm height once again.
In this look, I’ve paired my leopard print pumps with a cashmere knit and a pair of crop straight leg pants. This outfit is proof that you can still keep things muted while playing around with animal print. The knit and pants aren’t flashy by any means, and the pumps pair effortlessly with the outfit. I’ve even got a pair of leopard print loafers for when I’m wearing flats – same styling theory but for the everyday.
I’ve worn these pumps to work and have even paired it with a classic all-black number when heading out on a date night. There’s no going wrong and they’re undoubtedly a great style of shoes to have in your arsenal.
