Leopard print is a bold, fun, and fearless print. It’s also a timeless print, and some, including myself, consider it a “neutral color”. Wearing leopard print makes me feel confident and, of course, fashion-forward. As I’ve shared before, my confidence took a slight hit when I cut my hair. Since then, I’ve been paying close attention to how clothes and certain prints make me feel. It’s important to me now more than ever to wear clothes that make me feel confident.

To be honest, when I first saw these pants hanging on the rack at Lane Bryant, I was unsure how they’d look on my body. As much as I love wearing prints, sometimes I shy away from wearing them on the bottom. Nevertheless, I grabbed this pair and whisked off to the dressing room, silently praying these pants would look and make me feel A M A Z I N G. Prayer, answered.

Wearing prints on the bottom can be tricky, regardless of your size. Something I keep in when wearing printed bottoms is to wear tops that cover my bottom, or tops that are mid-thigh length. Such tops can include:
- Long/mid-length cardigans (worn over a tank top, cami, bodysuit, or fitted t-shirt)
- Over-size sweaters (this works best with leggings or straight-leg pants)
I also suggest, if at all possible, trying on printed bottoms before you purchase them. If you’re really feeling bold, create different looks while in the dressing room. This will give you a better idea of how you can style your printed pants for future outfits.

Thanks, Cheryl! I was going to hem the pants at first, but I’m glad I didn’t. They’re the perfect height for platforms.
These pants are super cute! And I’m totally with you ! Leopard print is a neutral! One of my favorites next to black.
Thank you, Vonetta! I’m always here for a leopard print or all black moment. 😉

I love how you styled your look with sneakers! I would have never thought of pairing it with animal print pants but I will now! Thanks for sharing.
Thanks, Lanae! I wanted to hem the pants because I don’t wear heels much. But I decided against it once I realized I could wear platforms with them!
I love a good leopard print and i’d wear those pants in a heartbeat!
Chic on the Cheap
You style prints effortlessly! I can definitely see you rocking these.
