Jenna Lyons once said, “As far as I’m concerned, leopard is a neutral.” We agree fervently and whole-heartedly; just take a look in our closets. If you’re like us, your fashionable love affair with leopard and animal print began long ago. From Scary Spice’s wild outfits circa 1997, to Roberto Cavalli’s sexy, slinky dresses circa early 2000s, we’ve seen many versions of the trend come and go over the years.

One thing we know is that leopard print will always be sexy. How could it not: it’s feline, feminine and fabulous. Same goes for stiletto pumps (especially those from Roger Vivier, of course). Leopard print makes us think of that line from last summer’s big hit, “Blurred Lines”: “Cause you’re an animal. Baby it’s in your nature…” It can’t help but be incredibly seductive.

We found plenty of leopard print accessories, bags and shoes that hit the elusive sweet spot of sexy, classy, feminine and cool. (Yep, it exists.) From the purrfect clutch to a pair of calf hair gloves or dangerously tall ankle boots—it’s all here. Shop the slideshow above to give new life to this new neutral.
