There is something about Leopard print and the fall season that just goes so well together. Growing up I had a tendency to stick with solid colors, I thought that wearing prints brought more attention to the fact that I was curvy. As I got older and fall further and further in love with fashion, those thoughts just disappeared and now I love wearing prints and mixing patterns.
Don’t allow your curvy stature to make you feel like you can’t wear clothes and patterns that you love. I think we can wear pretty much anything, but we need to know how to dress for our body types. As you can see in these photos, I wore this beautiful leopard blouse from Xhilaration from Target. This blouse helps to accentuate the curves and has this great high/low feature that gives this shirt such a girly feel. Personally I love to pair prints with solids so it doesn’t feel like too much or become overwhelming, as I did here by adding a solid color pencil skirt. I made this skirt using the online techniques of MimiG. It was so quick and easy. I love this pencil skirts hug the body giving you immediate sexiness. I used the oxblood skirt to help break up the print which helped the look come together since I was already mixing patterns with my head wrap. I used a head wrap with similar colors in my outfit to tie all the elements together.
So, as you can see wearing prints can be easy and simple at any size. It’s just playing on your shape and finding those elements that create the perfect look. Don’t be afraid to step out the box and enjoy all the great patterns and fabrics that are available.
