For the longest time I disliked animal prints. If you asked me a few years ago, or even a year ago, if I’d ever wear a leopard print cardigan (let alone anything) I would give a firm no. I was just never in to animal prints. But, for some reason this year they’ve been growing on me. When I see them now, I don’t have an instant aversion. In fact, it’s gotten to the point where I have bought a leopard print cardigan as evidenced by this post!
I knew I wanted to finally get a leopard print item so I was on the lookout for a sweater or cardigan that I really liked. Then, I saw this cardigan and it looked perfect – and it is! It’s so soft and cozy and I love the oversized feel of it. It’s easy to wrap yourself up in it and feel so warm and cozy.
I decided to go with an all-black look with the cardigan so I wore a black ribbed racerback bodysuit and black leggings. I decided to go with light colored UGGs though.

I love this outfit. So stylish yet comfortable. I’m loving the all-black look underneath and wearing leggings helped keep it slimming since the cardigan is oversized. I decided to go with light color UGGs to play off the cardigan and offer some contrast to the black leggings. These UGGs are in such great shape and if you can believe it they’re probably close to 8 or 9 years old! They were my first ever UGGs and still looking like new!
So I may be a leopard print convert, but I think I’m still going to be pretty selective about future pieces I buy.
What are your thoughts on leopard print?
