This fall, a little leopard equals a little style, and a lotta leopard equals a lot more style. This homage to the trendy kitty is being blown out for 2010, so get your feline fix now and stock up on handbags, shoes or scarves for a touch of the wild stuff, or go all Tarzan and Jane with a show-stopping gown or printed trench. Here are three of our favorite finds in our search for haute luxe leopard:
Jungle Look. Start your stride down the cat-walk with a hot new pair of leopard print booties. These Jimmy Choos from Nordstrom ($1,375) in Westside Pavilion (pictured above) will bring out that feminine strut. Or, if you’re on the hunt for something smaller, pick up these wicked baby booties for the little one from Juicy Couture at Paseo Nuevo ($68).
Nine Stylish Lives. Leverage your cat-ssets with a versatile, and dare we say classic, leopard print stole from Louis Vuitton. Wrap up in this fierce printed basic and let the purr roll off your tongue. We found this find at the Louis Vuitton boutique in La Cumbre Plaza ($715).
Here Kitty, Kitty. Call on leopard this season as a style staple. Since designers have tromped our misconceptions about how much cat is too much — feel free to layer it on, and wear it daily. Here’s an office friendly top that tucks under your blazer with ease and growls for happy hour later. This leopard lace top is at Michael Kors in Santa Monica Place ($695).
