Always daring yet flawlessly classic, leopard is once again the belle du jour. Fashion stylist and Wittner Walk Tall Influencer, Lana Wilkinson makes us fall in love with leopard all over again this Winter season.
I’ve always added touch of leopard to my outfits, especially with denim and black. I didn’t realise until clients started pointing it out to me. With that said, I’ve never been one to deck myself out in a leopard print, some people can pull off the look, unfortunately I’m just not one of them. I’ve always worn leopard footwear (heels particularly!) and sometimes a clutch , to perk up another print or add a spot of colour to a basic look, like a t-shirt and jeans. I also wear a lot of gold jewellery, which I think compliments my style.
My recommendation when styling and wearing leopard is to start small. I wear a lot of black and white, denim and neutrals and a little bit of leopard breaks it up and gives my look a fashionable edge.
These Ulli Ocelot pumps are a wardrobe staple as they can be worn with the season’s colours of choice – white, khaki, camel, grey and black to name a few… They are an investment piece!
The black blazer is one of my staples in my closet. I can wear to the office and after hours depending on what I style it with. The rose gold buttons make it quite directional and as an added bonus, it’s really comfortable to wear and easily takes me from the desk to dinner.
I styled my blazer with a silk white blouse and leather pants, very on-trend for this season. When I’m running around sourcing product or meeting with clients, I like to be comfortable but professional. As I often do, when I love something, I’ll style my entire look around it. In this case, these Ulli Ocelot leopard pumps. The injection of leopard adds print and texture. I try to avoid looking too corporate, however in the event I was meeting with a corporate client in their office, I would change out the leather pant for a tailored pant. The shoes stay.
