5 Ways to Wear a Leopard Print Scarf this Fall
Leopard Print is a classic and a great way to add a bit of edge and interest to a basic outfit, particularly for this season with cat-inspired fashion being everywhere. To celebrate this trend and the beginning of Fall (or ending of Winter for me!) here are 5 Ways to Wear a Classic Leopard Print Scarf. This set is inspired by the Type 3 Dressing Your Truth Style.

Casual: I really enjoy playing with contrasting patterns and have always thought that leopard print looks great with stripes. This is a simple, relaxed weekend sort of an outfit. I love the impact that the hit of the green earrings bring into the all neutral look.
Work: Leopard Print isn’t a usual choice to bring into professional attire but with the right pairings it can look as work appropriate as any other pattern. I again played with the idea of contrasting patterns with this look by combining the tartan with the print. I absolutely love the colours in this bag! They are so perfect for Fall! I feel this look really needs the pattern of the scarf to add interest. If you were to take the scarf off you’d need something like a patterned shirt or statement necklace to retain the look’s impact. How amazing are these shoes though!??
Lunch: This outfit is a bit more fun and colourful and would be perfect for a lunch out with some friends! I played with some colour theory here – the green, purple and orange are triadic complements. I really love how these blocks of colour play off of one another. Wendy’s Lookbook has a great video showing how to play with this idea in the building of outfits. I used the shoes and belt to tie the browns of the scarf into the rest of the look.
Party: Another fun look but with a bit more bling this time around! I love how the tan leather jacket compliments the teal blue of the dress and the gold of the jewellery. The scarf adds some fun movement to the look and works really well with these colours. The pop of the orange shoes sets off the outfit and captures the fun spirit of a party. I love that gold clutch!!
Date: This is such a pretty textured lace dress. I kept the movement pretty simple in this outfit with the pattern of the scarf and the colour of the clutch leading as the statement pieces.
Leopard Print. What’s around???…
I’ve actually never owned a true leopard print myself as the brown doesn’t really suit me. I absolutely love wearing the coloured or black and white versions of the print though.
How do you like wearing your leopard print????

These outfits are ADORABLE. I would totally wear #1 and #4, and I LOVE #3. So chic!
The Ruby Zipper
Outfits #3 and #5 are my faves! My husband claims he doesn’t like leopard print, but a scarf that cute could change his mind!
I’ve never actually worn leopard print before, but the outfit with the leopard and the red lacey dress looks really cute!

Oooh, great ideas! I have a leopard print scarf (two actually, but one is in purple tones, which mixes things up!) and you’ve already given me some good ideas for fall. Visiting via Audrey’s linkup! :)

I love the way you styled this scarf and the illustrations are so cute! I have leopard flats, but maybe I need a scarf now too. I’d love to be able to recreate some of these looks. I found you via Putting Me Together’s link party, by the way! ~ Ali from Pies & Puggles
I’m pretty sure I need a leopard scarf now. Thanks for all the suggestions! My favorite looks are the casual and date. Total opposites but so cute!

Thanks! Thanks so much for sharing your link :)
I love this! I’ve actually been looking for a leopard print scarf that works for me. It’s actually been hard! I’m hoping that as we get further into fall there will be more options in the stores.

Thanks! I know It’s amazing how different they can look on by being slightly different colour, pattern, fabric etc. of scarf. I’m seeing a lot come in here(Austrlia) for spring funnily enough. I actually have two coloured ones myself – a turquoise and navy one and a white and navy one. I love wearing them – they are so much fun.
What cute outfits! I have and love a leopard scarf. So fun!
Thanks so much! I think leopard print is super fun too :)
I LOVE this. My favorite is the party one – the cutest!!
Thank you so much!
