One of my favorite prints to wear is leopard. It’s a great print to wear when you want to make a bold style statement without feeling too “out of the box.” Even the smallest amount of leopard print in an outfit can make a big difference. So whether you’re a naturally wild mama, or a more reserved mama with a hidden wild side, leopard print is a fun way to show off your personal style. Check out these fashion-forward fall looks to get ideas on how you can be wildly in style this season.

1. Blouse & Jeans

A dressy blouse and a casual pair of ripped jeans make a fabulous combination. Bring out more of the colors from the blouse by wearing matching heels and a bag. This will make the bold print the focus of your outfit. You can rock this ensemble while running errands, grabbing lunch with the girls, or even attending a PTA meeting.

2. Pants & Knotted Top

Two things that are trending this fall? Leopard print and knotted tops. So of course wearing the two together will create the ultimate fall ensemble. Chambray is a fabric you’ll often see paired with leopard, and that’s because it’s a way to tone down the look while adding texture and dimension. If you want to draw attention to your long, shapely legs, rockin’ a pair of leopard pants will do the trick.

3. A Touch Of Clutch

For mamas who are less daring with their style, a leopard clutch is a “safer” way to do the print. You’ll add a touch of wild to your look, but you won’t feel overwhelmed by an entire outfit full of leopard. I like the idea of carrying a leopard clutch for a night out. The nice thing about a clutch is that it works for both day and night!

Take a look at Merrick’s Art to see a great example of how a leopard clutch can dress up a simple outfit.

4. Corporate Coat

For mamas who work in an office, a fun way to do leopard is with a coat. If your company dress code doesn’t allow bolder pieces like leopard print, you can still throw the coat over your outfit while you’re headed to lunch, or to your car. Maybe once your co-workers see how amazing you look, they’ll start a petition to allow “wild wear” on company premises!

5. Standard Scarf

How can you possibly make it through fall without wearing a scarf? Even places like California get chilly at night, and a scarf is a great piece for warming you up. So add a pop of wild to your nights with a leopard print scarf, wrapped in standard scarf style. You’ll be doing a classic look with a trendy piece, which is a great way to make an impression with your outfit.

6. Statement Shoes

As mamas, we don’t always have the chance to wear our sexy heels or our dressy dresses. But you can incorporate a little bit of funky into your look with a pair of leopard print shoes. Even if they aren’t heels, they’ll take your look up a notch and add an element of fun. Wear your leopard shoes with a top in a contrasting print for a really amazing outfit.

7. Loose Scarf

What I love about scarves is that you can wear them so many different waysΒ (we tell you all about it here)! You can even mix up the same outfit by re-styling your scarf throughout the day. One of the easiest ways to wear a scarf is by draping it over your shoulders and letting it hang loosely. If the weather gets cooler, you can easily wrap it up around your neck.

8. Skirt & Sweater

Sometimes the best way to handle fickle fall weather is by wearing two pieces of different “warmth levels.” For example, a light sweater is good for keeping you warm, but if the sun is still out, a knee length skirt will keep you cool so you don’t overheat. Since sweaters are generally more casual in style, you can dress up your look by doing a skirt in a leopard print. Want to be a super hot mama? Throw on a pair of sassy pumps with your outfit.
