The secret to leopard prints, like metallics, keep it simple with 1-2 items, maximum, if you want to create an elegant style.

Think of Coco Chanel’s saying:

“Look in the mirror and take something off”

Coco was referring to accessories, so see your leopard print as an accessory, not the whole outfit, think less is more.

Alternatively, if you want to make your leopard print a fashion statement, then wear confidently as a whole outfit.  Be aware, this has to be quality pieces, or a whole design, e.g.: a suit, or leopard print can cheapen your image.
