Leopard…Why You Can Gift It with Confidence

I have been so excited about the cooler weather, the leaves in my yard changing colors, putting up my decorations…and, oh yes, wearing my autumn clothes.  As I was dressing with a touch of leopard on Monday, it occurred to me how universal leopard prints are now.  In fact, some are calling it a neutral…meaning it will go with just about anything.

So, I wanted to encourage you for any women on your shopping gift list to consider leopard…because for most, it is a safe bet they will like the gift.  Now, I realize that ALL to do not like EVERYTHING.  I know some of you do not even like neutrals…as much as I do any way.  But, I have not met a woman in long time who did not like animal prints…particularly leopard.  And it is everywhere this year.  It makes a great gift, because it never goes out of style.

Check out my slide show below and see the gift options on the market.  So many fun ones…and I even noticed younger ladies are wearing it this year!  I do not think you can go wrong with leopard as a shopping choice.

You can also see that it goes great with tossing leaves in the air…so much fun! I hope these shopping tips and ideas are helping you.  Play in the leaves this week, and by all means……………………………



  1. What can I say?! I LOVE leopard! This is not just a “one-night stand” …but a “forever love”! Leopard looks great with reds, blues, black…etc/etc! Yes, I would be happy with anything leopard! ~ xo

  2. I’m going to add a touch of leopard to my sister’s gift – I never thought of it. The scarf above that gorgeous necklace is exactly like the one I found (had been searching for the perfect leopard scarf!) – and I really want to get some leopard earrings. I agree that leopard looks good with just about anything! That jacket in the slideshow with the floral trim is super cute!

  3. Absolutely Love, Love your necklace. Leopard has been a standard in my closet since the 60’s. A few years ago Michael Kors had a gift with purchase – a beautiful leopard print scarf, soft and wide. I still use the scarf, it just goes with everything. Lucky me that my sister adores leopard as much, if not more, than me and gifting her is easy.

  4. A lady at church (whose style I admire) wore a leopard jacket with a red turtleneck and black pants – she has blonde/gray hair and she looked fabulous! I told her so, too. I think about what my mother used to wear and how she did (or didn’t) do her hair at the same age I am now …. I’m not saying I’m a fashionista, but definitely more concerned with style that I thought I’d be at this age! A lady in a restaurant where we were eating Sunday after services said – “Has anyone ever told you that you look like Paula Deen?”…. I smiled and my husband said – “All the time!” I like it when someone says that – I think Paula is stylish but comfy/casual and love that I remind them of her! Stay warm in your leopard! 🙂

  5. Hi, Pam You’ve just met a person who does not like animal print, especially leopard. I grew up in an era where leopard print on a woman said “cheap” and not in the monetary sense. I can’t get past that. I love the animal colors and patterns, but I love them on the actual animals themselves. If someone were to give me a gift in animal print, I would say a heartfelt thank you, but I would not be wearing it.

  6. I’ve loved leopard (and black & white houndstooth) since I was a little girl, and I agree that leopard is a neutral. I have leopard in scarves, sweaters, t-shirts, blouses, handbag, tortoise sunglasses (if that counts) and… I particularly enjoyed shopping all of your links! Thank you, and enjoy your winter wardrobe!

  7. It took me a long time to warm up to the leopard look, & I still do it in small doses like accessories. I like the snow leopard print over the regular, as I think it looks better with my white hair, but a leopard belt is on my wish list.

  8. I love animal prints, so long as they are in their natural colors, and fit correctly. There is a world of difference between a body skimming leopard cardigan or pair of flats vs a tight pair of neon green leopard leggings. It’s alway, always about the execution.
