The Fab 40’s in Leopard!

how to wear leopard over forty

This month’s theme for the Fab 40’s is leopard!  Who doesn’t love leopard? It’s the fashion trend that just keeps trending!

My personal favorite way to wear leopard is in my accessories. I love these leopard sneakers and I also have a leopard belts and scarves on regular rotation.  And last winter, I treated myself to a leopard print wool coat!  I’m forever keeping my eyes out for the perfect leopard bag too.

My latest leopard obsession is wearing it with white.

    You and all the ladies look fabulous! I love leopard and try to do like you-accessorize. I have leopard shoes, bags, scarves and belts. I have my eye on a leopard biker jacket that would be so fun but I am trying to pair down my closet right now. I have so much that I don't use half of it. Peace! Cheryl

    I love leopard print — and cheetah, snake, zebra… Yes, basically any animal but cow, but never say never! — and I looove your shoes. I've been on the look out for similar shoes for about two years, but I just can't find them in my size. Having large feet is a drag sometimes! 😉

    Love how you've styled your leopard print Dawn Lucy. Like you I love adding some leopard print accessories to an outfit to add a bit of interest. In fact I love it so much I fear I may be becoming addicted!! 😉

    I love leopard print! In my wardrobe leopard has become a neutral because it goes with everything!

    I am a leopard/animal print addict I think. I just can't get enough of it. I love, love your sneakers. I may just have to take the plunge. Love all the leopard looks, especially that sweatshirt!
