How to style leopard leggings

Leggings aren't just a fashion statement; they're a way of life, especially if the leggings are leopard print. Leopard print leggings have been around for decades, and many of us have discovered new ways to wear them beyond the club and the office.

Leopard print leggings are a style that, if not coordinated right, may be tough to pull off. Even if your leopard print leggings are a different animal print, there are plenty of techniques and ways to style them. Here are a handful of our favourite ways to style leopard print leggings.

How leopard print leggings became a fashion staple

Leopard leggings have come a long way. From high fashion to everyday wear, this design has evolved. We’ve been in awe of leopard print leggings since their debut on the runway in the 1970s and 1980s. At Natopia we’ve made this classic trend accessible and better than before.

Leopard print appears to be one of those styles that is constantly changing with the seasons, and there seems to be no stopping it. From colourful, fun designs and prints, we’ve made it easy to dress up on your next coffee date. To keep up with this here are some style tips to ensure no matter where you wear your leopard leggings, you’ll always look fabulous!

Pair your leopard print leggings with a solid

What makes solids work so well with leopard print leggings is that if you want a look that is simple, entertaining, and put together without putting in too much effort, this is the look for you. It's vital not to go overboard with your look, as with any design or style, you could pair leopard print with a simple solid grey pullover or a black cardigan. 

A classic look is to pair your leopard print leggings with knee-high black boots. A simple basic colour shirt with leopard print leggings is appropriate during the summer, while at night, a loose fitted top in a solid colour with your best wedges or open-toed heels will make for a fab night out look.

Keep it minimal

When wearing leopard print leggings, it’s best to keep it basic with a printed t-shirt and sneakers. For a quick change from casual to classy, carry around a spare set of heels or black flats and a leather jacket. Simply yet edgy!

Dress for your body type

Everyone has their unique body shape, and everyone has a right to wear leopard print leggings, no matter if you’re a size 8 or a size 16. 

Leopard leggings are suitable for all ages, sizes, and body types. They’re one of those designs that looks good on everyone but finding the right pair you can wear well can be difficult. When choosing leopard print leggings, look for a pair that helps accentuate your body in the best way while also providing extra coverage if needed. 

Style for work

Leopard leggings are versatile enough to wear on the treadmill or your workplace. If you want to pass the leopard print leggings off as professional, opt for a neutral colour heel or pointed flat. You can also pair them with a basic coloured top, such as a loose-fitting white top and a neutral coloured cardigan. 

Whatever you do, avoid mixing too many colours; it will appear odd, and you won’t be considered as suitably dressed for your workplace.

The Gym look

When you go to the gym, pair your leopard print leggings with a simple solid colour tank top or even a matching t-shirt or crop in the same pattern. You’ll find yourself oozing confidence on the treadmill and even around the track, in the perfect pair of leopard leggings

If you lack confidence, experiment with a stunning pair of leopard print leggings to get out of your comfort zone for a bit. Knowing how to wear leopard print leggings, whether dressed down or up, becomes easier over time, but only if you learn how to wear them correctly and try it a few times in a few different ways.

Final tips

Wear simple accessories, such as studded earrings, instead of major jewellery, with your leopard print. Don't be afraid to accessorise your ensemble with bangles or even a set of leopard-print studs to compliment your whole look.
