Easy-to-Follow Outfit Idea: Red + Animal Print

September 5, 2013

There are a few classic combinations that are perfect for when you are feeling stumped or uninspired in your closet.  I thought I’d start a new series with some examples of these easy-to-follow outfit ideas and you can house (or pin!) them away for the days when you just can’t think of what to wear!  Red and animal print is such a perfect combination – it’s bold and fun – and there are so many ways to wear it.  You don’t have to put together an over-the-top look, you can just do pops of red or animal print– but you can also go all out if you want too.  It’s really up to you!  Julie (of Sincerely Jules) on the left and Helena of (Brooklyn Blonde) both wear the combination in such a classic way, and the middle look (anyone know who this is??) is a bit more on the wild side, but still looks great.   Below are some of my favorite pieces to achieve one of the looks above:

MANGO Crepe Blazer // Clare Vivier Clutch // J Crew Henley Blouse //Kate Spade Bow Belt

NastyGal Red Pumps // Topshop Red Skirt // Zara Leopard Flats // Clare Vivier Crossbody bag // Topshop Black Coat

Topshop Black Lace Skirt // Rebecca Taylor Peplum Top // MANGO red pants // Zara Black Pumps

Gap Leopard Belt // Aldo Red Flats // Topshop Cream Tank // Marciano Gold Belt

    Yes, it totally works in such a fabulous way! And I’m feeling so crazy about a animal print clutch like that one you put here!

    I always pair red with leopard, it’s the perfect combo!


  • Sarah Markle

    Can I just say this is going to be my favorite new “series” of yours to follow! I always need that extra help in figuring out combos that I already have in my closet. THANK YOU!!!

      oh heck yes! You are WELCOME my dear – i am glad you are liking this!

    Wore this last week myself…this red, black, cream and leopard combo. LOVE IT!
    Thanks for the hip list of shopping suggestions! Do I have the nerve in my 50’s to
    rock the red pants? hum????

      Oh guietgirl – I sure hope you have the nerve! Red pants are chic at any age! And if you’re more comfortable pairing them in a preppy manner, a navy and white striped top and some camel loafers would look so chic with red pants.
