Today's Everyday Fashion: Team Player














































Leopard print is the ultimate team player - it works well with both the black and brown tones in your closet. The first time I wore this skirt, I paired it with electric blue and black (see here). This time, I stuck to rich brown, mustard and green. That is definitely the kind of versatility I was hoping to get out of this skirt, and what makes leopard so appealing in my opinion! Do you prefer to pair leopard with black or brown tones?

  3. I prefer leopard with black, but mostly because I just don't like brown!

  4. I usually prefer leopard with black tones but now I'm liking the brown tones.  I also like the pop of color with the leopard!

  6. Hah!  I thought the title was team player because you live in Florida and those are Miami Dolphins colors.  But I agree leopard is great, love my leopard shoes!

    Love it both ways.  I agree, sometimes I consider Leopard a neutral.

  9. What a fun look!  I wear leopard with black for a more formal look, and brown when I'm wanting to tone it down.

  11. I like your version much better! The orange/leopard and teal look great together and really compliments your skin tone.

  13. I love the flexibility of leopard print. Some times I pair it up with brown, some times black. I can't believe I've never thought of teal, orange, blue, or any other color with it!

    BTW - Your MJR influence has worn off on me. I just placed my first order.

  14. Love this look and the shoes.

    Thanks to this blog, I am wearing things out of my usual comfort zone. Today I have on a lilac blouse, grey pencil skirt and a lime green skinny belt. Also bought a purple pencil skirt and 2 more colored skinny belts. I love the way you add color to your outfits with the belts.

    Thanks Jen for being an inspiration.

  16. I love leopard print for the same reasons you listed. I have some leopard print flats and a belt and I wear them with everything like they are neutrals.
    Black or brown? BOTH. I actually think leopard is a great way to wear black and brown at the same time. :)

    I love the orange with this outfit! My post today addresses animal prints too. I paired mine with red and i thought it made the red more brown tone.

  20. LOVE! Those colors are great with that skirt! What MK watch do you wear; is it the RUNWAY watch?

  21. J, if someone usually wears a size 6, could they wear the medium size in the skirt you have on here? The sizing is a little different than I'm used to. Great look--I love aqua with animal.

  22. I like to pair leopard with tan tones with black accents not as much with darker browns.

    Thanks Susie! It's the same watch I link to - the MK8077, technically a men's watch!

    That is a tough call, this store definitely runs small. I wear a size 2 on the bottom, and I'm wearing the size M in this skirt - and I believe they only sell S and M at that store. The skirt is really stretchy, so it has some give, I'm just not sure if it would fit exactly the same as how I'm wearing it. I hope this helps! :-)

    I've been eyeing leopard print lately. Flats, skirt or shorts!? I can't decide!
