As much as I love a smart pair of flat shoes, there are certain occasions that call for you to step your outfit up a notch and slip into a pair of heels.
My personal style is pretty understated, meaning the core of my wardrobe is made up of neutral colour items in navy, grey, black, and cream. Having the basic items in neutral tones makes it much simpler to build outfits and pull together a stylish look.
As much as I love a neutral outfit, it's important to bring some life to your wardrobe too. Adding a colour with a coat, scarf or shoe is a great way to liven up your outfit and refresh your style.
Something that will never go out of style, is leopard print. An easy way of wearing leopard print is in accessories. If you're like me and prefer a minimalistic approach to personal style, leopard print in a pair of heels is just the right amount of colour to bring in.
I've selected the current 3 of the best leopard print heels across different heights and price points. Here are my top choices of high heels, mid heels and kitten heels.
I love the point-toe silhouette on these calf hair pumps from Gianvito Rossi. This pair of leopard print heels are sleek and you'll be able to pair them with a smart outfit or casual outfit either during the daytime or at night. These would be a great versatile addition to your shoe collection!
This classic kitten heel from Stuart Weitzman is chic and feminine. Paired with some tailored skinny jeans, these heels will help flatter your legs. I like the pointed-toe and low cut vamp. A kitten heel is a great choice if you'll be wearing heels for an extended period of time as they're easier on the foot than stiletto heels.
This is the perfect inbetweener. This Carrie Mid Heel Courts from Boden boasts more height that the kitten heel but isn't quite as serious as serious as the stiletto heel. This pair will be comfortable on your feet and the scalloped effect makes these shoes look really elegant.
Leopard print heels are a versatile investment for your wardrobe. They can work for so many occasions and are a great way to update your look. If you're feeling unsure on how to pair a print with the rest of your outfit, get in touch and let's have a chat about your wardrobe.
