Here are some inspiration pictures to help you visualize it either way. Leopard print can match with colors, other prints, more leopard, anything! Versatility isn’t a trait you find in many patterns, but you do find it with leopard print, so if you’re interested in the trend, snag whatever item of leopard print clothing you find that fits you and capitalize on the moment.
