I’m a very big fan of animal prints (when worn sparingly), although my print of choice is always almost zebra for its classic black & white color combo. It’s seemingly coy, yet still perfect for accessorizing with radiant reds, blooming blues, or a natural neutral! It’s been a while since I went out the hunt for some Luxury Look-Alikes For Less, so I was clicking through my emails & found a sale going on @BCBG Max Azria. I wanted to check out these supposed sale items & while I love the designs of glittery skirts, flattering trousers, & lacy tops, these were still beyond my budget. This Simone leopard jacquard skirt ($168.00) is probably worth every penny & will last a very long time for virtually any season. When it comes to a print like this, especially on a skirt, the shoe possibilities are nearly endless when you consider a classic round toe pump, a daring embossed pointed toe stiletto, zip-up knee boots, or gladiator platforms.
In a fury of fashion & frugality (go with me on this) I clicked around on Forever 21‘s website only to rejoice in finding the leopard knee length skirt ($12.80), which is perfect to pair with a crisp button-down shirt, silky cami, simple tee, or sequined tank. For my Style Darlings who wear plus sizes, the Jessica London pencil skirt ($69.99), is available in sizes 12 – 28. Although the prices have quite the range for my lovely look-alikes, I can’t emphasize enough how flattering & versatile this piece is. A pencil skirt lasts & you can reinvent it with over & over again with some layered beads, a cropped cardigan, or metallic belt. Happy Styling!
