5 WAYS TO WEAR A LEOPARD TEE

Today I’m showing 5 ways to wear a leopard print tee with this Old Navy luxe tee I shared about in my latest set of clothing reviews. This top is suuuuuper comfy! It’s really soft, really stretchy, and has a good drape. You can wear it casually with joggers and jeans, or you can dress it up a little with the right pieces—both of which I’ll show you today!

In case you missed when I reviewed this top recently, it has so many things going for it, like the comfort I mentioned above, in addition to the scoop neck which helps open and elongate your neck line. There are just two things I don’t totally love. First is that it wrinkles a little. However, the wrinkles are most noticeable in the solid white version, and even then, it’s fairly minor. As for this leopard print, the wrinkling is totally masked by the print, so it’s not much of a problem. Second is that I don’t like how long the top is, but to work around it, I loosely tuck both the front and back. To me, that trouble is worth how comfortable this top is! It comes in 3 solid colors and 3 prints, HERE. I wear size S.

This top works really well in outfits for spring, summer, and fall. It’s super versatile. Today I’ll just share some for spring and summer weather, and you’ll have to trust me that you can wear it in the fall. It works great with jeans and layered up with a long cardigan, utility jacket, or blazer.

Alright, here we go!

SIZING: I’m 5’6″ and usually S/M or 6 in clothes and 8.5 to 9 in shoes.

1. White Jeans + Wedges + (Denim Jacket)
First up is a nicer casual outfit for a springy day or cooler summer day for a lunch out. This top looks super fresh with white jeans! Dress it up with nude wedges, or keep it lower key with flat sandals.

These jeans are unfortunately sold out in nearly all sizes. They are suuuper comfy, with stretchy legs and a stretchy waistband that has an elastic strip in the back. If you want to try to catch them, you can check HERE. I wear size 6.

2. White Shorts + Sandals
If it’s plenty warm where you live, go for white shorts instead!

BTW, I’ve worn these sandals for YEARS, and they go with everything. They are so old that they’re not available anymore, but there is a super, super, super similar pair HERE. Very affordable, too! They look less orange-ish in person than on the product site. I wear them in size 9. There is another similar pair that is more brown/taupe HERE.

Elevated Casual Outfit: leopard tee + black wide leg pants + pendant necklace + metallic sandals + tan toteElevated Casual Outfit: leopard tee + black wide leg pants + pendant necklace + metallic flat sandals + tan tote

3. Black Wide Leg Pants + Sandals
This top also easily pairs with basically all kinds of black bottoms, whether it’s shorts, linen pants, joggers, or jeans. Here, I’m pairing it with wide leg linen pants for summer.

These linen pants are lightweight and great for airflow in the summer. They do wrinkle a little and feel a tad itchy, but they’re a nice, casual option for summer. See them in 3 colors and blue/white stripes in regular, tall, and petite lengths HERE. Plus sizes HERE. I wear these in size 4.

There is a similar pair of pants that are thicker, softer, stretchier, and don’t wrinkle or feel itchy, HERE. Those can be dressed up for work really nicely, and they can be dressed down with slip-on sneakers. I wear that pair in size 4.

Shop the Outfit:
Top: Old Navy (exact—wearing size S)
Pants: Old Navy (exact—wearing size 4; similar thicker option—I wear size 4)
Shoes: c/o DSW (exact—wearing size 8.5)
Tote: Nordstrom (exact)
Necklace:
c/o Dear Mushka (exact)

 

Casual Outfit: leopard tee + black joggers + tan earrings + white slip-on sneakers

4. Black Joggers + White or Black Sneakers
I love that you can dress this tee up or down. Here it is in a sporty look with suuuuuper lightweight joggers and sneakers.

These are the joggers I told you about recently. I really, really love them for a lightweight summer pants option! I got them at the tail end of last summer (I think, can’t fully remember the timing) and loved them so much that I bought them in two more colors this year!

They are made of a super lightweight material that kind of feels like windbreakers. The legs have stretch, and the waistband is elastic. The pockets are zippered to keep items secure. The ankles have an elastic cuff as well as zippers, so you can open up the bottom of the legs a little for more airflow. These do get slightly looser upon wear. They come in 4 colors in addition to a camo print, HERE. I wear size M, but if I’m being super picky, I’d prefer a size right between S and M (which, unfortunately, does not exist 😆). Check them out in regular, tall, and petite lengths HERE. Plus sizes HERE

Shop the Outfit:
Top: Old Navy (exact—wearing size S)
Pants: Old Navy (exact—wearing size M)
Shoes: Nordstrom (similar, similar)
Tote: Nordstrom (exact)
Earrings: c/o Nickel & Suede (exact—wearing size M)

 

Casual Outfit: leopard tee + olive joggers + metallic sandals + pendant necklace + grey crossbody bag

5. Olive Joggers or Shorts + Sandals
You can also pair this top with olive bottoms, whether it’s utility shorts, linen pants, chinos, or lightweight joggers like these. These are the same joggers as the ones above, just in green. Unfortunately, this color is currently sold out, but this combo works with any type of bottoms!

Shop the Outfit:
Top: Old Navy (exact—wearing size S)
Pants: Old Navy (exact—wearing size M)
Shoes: c/o DSW (exact—wearing size 8.5)
Necklace: c/o Dear Mushka (exact)
Earrings: c/o Nickel & Suede (exact—wearing size M)
Bag: (similar, similar, similar)

Those are some ways to wear a leopard print tee that you can try this summer! I think my favorite look out of all of these is the one with the white jeans, but the one I’ve actually been wearing the most is the one with the black joggers. I LOVE those joggers, and with three little kids, my life has been pretty casual lately. I love that outfit for a super easy, super comfy, sporty look!
