This post was inspired by a lot of other bloggers I follow. Lately, and maybe because it’s fall, I’ve been seeing leopard print flats, heels and booties on almost everyone. Of course, there’s a reason why. Leopard print, in my opinion, is a print that will never go out of style, especially on shoes. Whether the shoe is fully covered in the print or only has a small touch of it, a leopard print shoe is a great closet staple to have. I styled my favorite leopard bootie with destroyed jeans, a fringe jacket and striped sweater.
It’s starting to get REAL chilly here in Ohio. It’s making me miss the warm weather we had last weekend where I was able to shoot the look I’m sharing with you today.
SO, the look. Print mixing – some love it, some think it’s ridiculous.
If you love it, great. If you’re on the fence with creating an outfit that incorporates print mixing, I’m sharing a subtle way you can do so. Rather than print mixing the more prominent pieces of your look, print mix the less prominent pieces.
For this look, I mixed stripes and leopard prints. I layered a shirt dress [worn as a vest] over the top to play down the stripes and opted for wide leg pants to show a peek of the bootie print, but not the whole bootie. There are so many ways to subtly mix prints, like mixing a handbag and top, or a top and shoe.

Thanks to trendsetters like Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, the legging trend is back in full force. There are most definitely some right and wrong ways to style your leggings [especially during the colder months] and I’m here to show you some ideas for styling your leggings the right way this season. Also as a special bonus, at the end of this post I’ve provided a discount code just for you to receive 20% off your comm-ci leggings.

Style your leggings with a similar color jacket and break up the look by mixing contrasting prints. I also layered a sweater over the tunic to add some extra warmth.
Ever wish you could just go to work in pajamas? Well, leggings come a close second to being that comfortable work wear piece you need. To keep leggings professional in the workplace, you want to ensure the top, jacket, blazer, or sweater your wearing provides the right coverage [ideally sitting right below or past the hip]. Also, make sure your leggings aren’t see-through. One reason I love these comm-ci leggings is because of how thick they are.
