How to wear Leopard Print Tights

I have never in my life worn anything with an animal print. So to finally incorporate leopard print into my wardrobe is a big deal, and to do it with tights made the transition a whole lot easier. These tights I bought at the "Only Sale of the Season" Sale at LF. A mini chain store in NYC. They always have a nice selection of tights, clothes, purses etc-but always ridiculously priced until sale time.

When I saw these, I felt it was time to take the plunge into animal prints. By pairing it only with Black you  avoid the traditional Brooklyn stereotype of an Italian American who wears animal print from head to toe and become more of the new stereotype Brooklyn Hipster especially with the "men's wear" shoes. These are a great quality tight, the pattern doesn't stretch out when you put them on. Which can sometimes happen when the pattern is printed on the tights and not knit into the tights. Which is totally frustrating when you find something that looks amazing on the shelf and you get it home and put it on and it looks like when you use silly putty to grab an image in a new paper then stretch it out...ick

In addition to this pair of Fab leopard print tights, my friend Laura Angela also brought me a pair of grey leopard tights from Paris! So the story will continue on how to wear leopard print tights!


  1. Those are great! I've been trying to find a pair of leopard tights ever since seeing the ones Giovanna Battaglia was wearing on Sartorialist. Nicely done!
