Some things come and go but leopard print is forever.
Would you believe me if I told you these tights have been in my collection for 4 years? It’s true! I bought them because of a stylish outfit I clipped from a magazine about 10 years but have only just now worked up the courage to wear them.

I’m no stranger to pattern mixing in my outfits but leopard print tights felt like a big leap for me. It’s so much pattern in a place where I don’t normally wear patterns!
But like with my floral shorts this past summer, I wore these tights around my house with an LBD many times getting used to seeing my legs all covered in animal print. I guess it worked because here I am!
The original picture that inspired me to buy these tights was an outfit comprised of black high waisted shorts and a fun graphic tee. Clearly I went in a different direction!
I went with this green dress I picked up in my November thrift haul video and added this brocade blazer (another recently thrifted piece) on top. All together I felt like the look perfectly tied together the fall + winter seasons. The colors and textures make it a little bit of both and I’m digging it!
I always have fun when I go outside my clothing comfort zone and I’m so glad I finally put these tights to good use! Let me know on my Facebook page what’s one item you’re afraid of styling. Hopefully it won’t take you 4 years to try it out! ?
