Leopard + Stripes

I know-leopard and stripes is so original, right? But it’s easy, it’s cute, and for me it doesn’t require much thought to piece together. I tend to gravitate towards certain pairings when I am at a loss as to what to wear, and leopard and stripes is one of them.

I had been wanting a faux fur leopard jacket for a couple of years now and finally decided to get one. I am still sort of on the fence with this one from Forever 21. Although it’s cute, the sizing is a bit odd. The large made me look like I was a little girl dressing up in my Mom’s clothes, but the medium is pretty snug. Not to mention, the lining in the one sleeve was sewn crooked, so it makes it pretty damn hard to get on! I have to have my mom fix it for me! Usually the quality of their stuff is decent for what you pay, so I am assuming it was just a little glitch that this one was a bit messed up! I will link some other options below for you as well, because I feel like something like a leopard jacket should be a closet staple! I can’t wait to wear it with head to toe black. I think that is such a classic look!
