Hot trends are a lot of fun, but when they completely take over, they tend to lose their original appeal. Enter leopard print. We got hints that leopard would be a fall staple, but could we have comprehended just how much we were going to see it?
As I scroll through Instagram these days, I wonder why I’m following so many, dare I say, basic women. Everyone has a Gucci belt, Brixton hat, and some sort of leopard product. While many people love these items, I’m honestly starting to get sick of seeing leopard spots on every street corner, in every news feed, and at the center of every photo. Where is our originality? Is it completely lost in this social media era we live in?
While leopard is certainly oversaturated, animal print is a great wardrobe staple to have this season, so I’m here to remind everyone that other prints exist! Ditch the leopard, and opt for snakeskin or tiger print instead.

Despite its social media takeover, I still love leopard print (always have and always will). So yes, you can still rock it. Just try to jazz it up in a non-basic way. When you want to mix things up, though, just reach for snakeskin or tiger print. I guarantee that you’ll be the talk of the town.
