Three Ways to Wear: The Leopard Print Sleeveless Top

The leopard print top by Topshop is just one of those shirts. Until recently the sleeveless collared top was pretty much relegated exclusively to the realm of the suburban soccer mom - boxy, pastel, probably from L.L.Bean.

But then this happened, and things got all kinds of fierce up in here. It's incredible what a little tailoring and material change can do to a tired item, no? Sheer, feline, and silky, this top could easily sway into the jurisdiction of the Kardashian-at-night, but with the right accompaniment, it's totally prime for daywear.

Try it with an off-white pant - (stark white is a bit Guess, which I'm kind of against as a brand) - or punch it up with an ultra-bright yellow. The obvious choice would be to style the leopard a little safari, which is a great excuse to wear a Reiss hat and an animal-head motif ring. Refrain from being obvious by keeping this top far away from fuchsia, liquid leather, or other club-wear items, unless you're actually clubbing in it, in which case, go wild.
