Five Ways to Wear a Leopard Print Midi Skirt

There are heaps of leopard print midi-skirts out there at the moment, they are very on-trend! In this tutorial I’ll be showing you five different ways in which you can style one. I’ve styled my asymmetrical flowy skirt but I’m sure you could find a more conservative one if you would feel uncomfortable wearing a skirt cut like this.

Outfit 1:

  • Leopard print midi skirt
  • White mockneck bodysuit
  • Charcoal grid pattern blazer
  • Black strappy stiletto heels
  • Burgundy layered statement necklace

I wanted to create this look for work because sometimes we imagine that leopard print can only be worn in edgy and sexy ways, and it doesn’t have to be. It can be really chic. The best way to make a piece of clothing look more classy is to put a blazer with it. I chose to wear my long grid patterned charcoal blazer with a white turtleneck bodysuit underneath. I stuck with basic black stilettos and finished off the look with a burgundy layered statement necklace.

Outfit 2:

  • Leopard print midi skirt
  • White slogan t-shirt
  • Oversized denim jacket
  • White sneakers
  • Brown fringe handbag

This look was so fun and so me; I love playing with casual and dress-up elements at the same time. The skirt by itself is a really dressy piece, so I played it down by pairing it with a slogan t-shirt, knotted at the front, and some crisp white sneakers. I swear they go with everything and make everything look more casual. I also added this oversized distressed denim jacket over the top to really pile-on the street vibes. You could stop right there, and that would be an excellent casual daywear look, but I also threw on my brown fringe cross-body bag. It pulls in some of the less prominent colors from the leopard print skirt and adds an almost boho element to it to just make this outfit super fun.

Outfit 3:

  • Leopard print midi-skirt
  • Black band tee
  • Black strappy stiletto heels

I don’t think that I can style a leopard print skirt without going a little bit edgy. The almost pattern mix of the leopard print and the graphic fan tee makes for a really interesting combination, and I’ve always loved pairing leopard print with red. I kept the rest of the outfit really simple with just some plain black strappy heels. I actually wore this look to work because I have a fairly relaxed and creative work environment, but I could totally see this being a perfect concert outfit. You might want to switch out the stilettos for something more dance-friendly though.

Outfit 4:

  • Leopard print midi-skirt
  • Black crop top singlet
  • Black mesh long sleeve crop top
  • Black lace-up military boots

Wearing this outfit gives me so much attitude, I feel like an angsty teen all over again. If you thought that the last outfit was edgy, then hang onto your fishnets, my dear, because now I’m going all out. For this outfit, I’ve layered a long sleeved mesh crop top underneath a black crop top before pairing that with my imitation Doc Martin boots. I was planning on draping a layered mix of black chains around my neck, but unfortunately, that necklace broke recently. Instead, I accessorized it with some edgy earrings.

Outfit 5:

  • Leopard print midi-skirt
  • White off the shoulder crop top
  • Nude patent leather pumps
  • Rose gold layered necklace

I feel like this is leopard print as we normally think of it, really sexy, but to me, it’s really fun for date night. This time I’m really letting the shirt be the hero-piece of the outfit by pairing it with nude pumps and a white off the shoulder crop top. The rose gold layered necklace brings a hint of pink into the outfit, giving it a little more of a girly touch. Something about the ruffles on this skirt makes me think that date night tonight should be Latin dancing. Ole!
