Meow Mix: Try Layering Leopard With Leopard

leopard-on-leopard-giovanna-kristin
Too much pattern-mixing generally hurts our eyes, but when done right, combo-ing different prints can look remarkably chic. We've spotted trendsetters like Giovanna Battaglia wearing leopard-on-leopard and found it to be surprisingly fetching. At first, we were apprehensive about mixing up the kitty prints, but with the right recipe, it can be a simple yet striking way to spice up your wardrobe. Cinch a leopard belt around a chiffon dress, or do like Giovanna and wear your cat-power tights with some patterned shoes. However you try it, just make sure you pair spots in varying sizes, colors, and fabrics for a look that's eclectic rather than eccentric. To get you started, here are four ways we like to mix it up.
