Once in a blue moon (read more often than not) I get overly excited and obsessed over certain pieces, such as the leopard skirt aka the LEO SKIRT. It really sums up two very different things for me: 1) the animal print trend which I love and will forever adore and wear, and 2) skirts, which I almost never wear. I really don’t know why. I find them unnecessary, and quite frankly a lot of work. (they’re dressy AND need a top). Anyway, don’t mind me. Last time I wore a skirt was when I was 8 months pregnant and it was part of a set, so it might as well have been a dress (which it actually looked like). And after that I last had a skirt on in an HM changing room about a month ago, and I looooved how it looked so I bought it. I guess there’s a first time for everything.

I’m dying to wear it, so in my quest for outfit inspiration I thought why not take y’all on my leo skirt journey with me while we look at this instagram trend together.

YES I call it an insta trend cause 4 outta 5 posts on Instagram are of a a leo skirt: chic silky midi leopard and leopard. Everyone’s wearing one with either heels or flats, and yet here I am clueless of what to wear with it. Do you ever get like that?

Nevermind.

1.Leo Skirt with black/white tee

This outfit is so simple yet so sophisticated I’m in love with it. It’s the perfect spring & summer outfit when you wear it with flat mules or sandals. It has that Carrie Bradshaw vibe to it.

2. Sneakers and leopard skirt

This is more on the normcoare edgy side, clashing this flirty uber feminine skirt with dad sneakers or chunky shoes. This style always looks amazing with a sweater.

3. Leo skirt and blazer.

Office chic gone wild in a good way. I love a black longline blazer winged at the waist with a belt.

4. Leo skirt and sweater.

This is a very cool and no-brainer look, and love it because I’m such a fan of a sweater-instead-of-a-jacket-look. This style looks amazing with heels and a cool bag.

5. Leo skirt and ankle boots or heels.

This is perfection because what doesn’t look amazing with heels? I’m such a fan of sock boots this season (although I’ver heard they’re out of style already, but I really don’t care cause they’re just so flattering) that I think they’re the perfect style for this skirt (apart from kitten heel mules).

Such a cute and flirty little thing no wonder it’s gotten everyone smitten with it.
