I know I’ve made a wise buy if I have so many phone pix of me wearing it that we don’t have to get out the camera for a photo shoot.
This usually means the wise buy goes with tons of things already in my closet. As you may know, I really like items that are versatile. These Leopard slacks are just such an item (from What To Wear on the county seat square in Butler, Missouri, about 50 miles south of Kansas City).
After reviewing a snow leopard top last fall for Covered Perfectly, I’ve been wanting more snow leopard. These slacks fit the bill. The print is smaller with black, white and a grey that has a hint of green tone. They have a fabric content of 75% rayon, 22% nylon and 3% spandex–a wonderful combination in my book. With a wide waistband, they slip on easily and are quite comfortable to wear. I’m going to show five ways I’ve worn them, starting with a Saturday night at the symphony.
Out to dinner with friends, I added a silver metallic knit top (had it so long, can’t remember where I got it) and a close fitting thrifted Ann Taylor jacket. Of the looks I’m presenting today, this is my favorite because of the Stella & Dot pearl necklace. (Currently, there are pages of Stella & Dot jewelry listed on eBay.)
On my feet again are my Marc Fisher flats. Oh, how I wish they would keep these shoes in their lineup. I would buy another pair.
With me in this picture is Debby, my friend and owner of What To Wear. We both chose to wear animal prints that night. Animal prints are trending toward the bright this spring. Debbie is embracing that and I think it looks great on her.
When filling in for the elementary secretary, I kept things simple:
Versatile for another working day:
And finally, what I wore just a couple days ago to our Missouri Retired Teachers Association meeting:
These slacks have turned out to be one of the most versatile and comfortable that I own. I really like the smaller printed pattern, which lends itself to an array of styles, from casual to dressy. I also find the smaller print appeals to friends who would never think about wearing a large animal print. Unfortunately, when I went on line to try to find a similar pair, I pretty much came up empty handed. It seems the spring styles are featuring large and less subtle printed patterns.
Thank you for reading. I hope you enjoyed the post today…may you stay creative.
Until next time, Style on!
