The fashion world accepts that there are a few things that will never go out of style. First, a well-tailored little black dress. Second, confidence looks good on everyone. Lastly, a good leopard print will always elevate your outfit, as long as it’s done well.
I’m in the camp that believes leopard print looks better as an accent than a pattern that comprises an entire outfit. Dolce & Gabbana’s current line of leopard print handbags manage to create a range of emotions suitable for different moods
The designer is taking the classic print up a notch by adding embellishments like studs and colorful beads. The burst of color on the handle sets the bag out from the crowd. Other features like leather-sewn figurines add a playful touch that’s not kitsch. We’re loving the whimsical collection!
