12 Leopard Print Pump Outfits


I remember agonizing over whether or not to get leopard print pumps, but now a few years in I have absolutely no regrets.  My first pair was from Target, and the print was a bit darker as you can see in the bottom row of pics.  I wore them for 2-3 years until sometime last year I updated to my current lighter print pair from Sole Society (sold out now, but same print is available in a shorter kitten heel HERE).  

I featured them in my Shoe Basics post as one of my go-to pairs of shoes.  They so easily make a casual outfit of jeans + a t-shirt more presentable.  Outfits 1 and 5 are jeans and a cotton tee, but leopard pumps not only dress them up a bit without actually feeling dressed up, they also add some pattern and interest.  There are some dressier looks in here as well, like outfits 6 and 7.  And there are a ton of "in between" outfits that are dressy casual or casual business casual.  

I have a handful more leopard pump outfits that aren't in this collage which can be found by scrolling through HERE!  

I don't know why I ever hesitated.  I love these things!  Oh wait, I remember why.  Leopard print stuff can be so tacky, so before being exposed to classier leopard prints I had a negative impression of leopard print.  No worries though.  There's tons of good, classy stuff out there like the ones below.

I really like #1 because of the lighter print, which I already talked about.  Option 2 is a cheetah print, but same idea.  This one looks super classy!  I think Option 3 is a really, really great classic leopard pump in both the print and the shape of the shoe.  And I LOVE that the heel height seems manageable.  Option 4 is the cheapest by far, regularly only $30 and currently on sale for less than that.  The heel height looks high for me personally, so I'd prefer #3, but someone commented in one of my recent posts that it's actually pretty comfortable!


Outfit Formulas
And finally, some leopard pump outfit formulas:
  • cotton t-shirt + jeans + leopard pumps
  • solid blouse + jeans of any color + leopard pumps
  • lace tee or lace dress + leopard pumps
  • solid cotton jersey dress + leopard pumps
  • striped tee + skirt or jeans + leopard pumps 

Have fun with them!
