Fall 2011 Fashion Trend: Leopard Print Shoes & Accessories

 Leopard Print ShoeI have become a firm believer in taking fashion risks. I used to play it safe when it came to my shoes and accessories choices—I’d stick to a standard black sandal or pump to pair with my outfits, or neutral handbag to finish off my look. But then I started seeing all of these colorful and eye-catching patterns hit the runways and fashion magazines, and I had to see what all the fuss was about.

This fall, leopard print is becoming a fashion standout when it comes to shoes and accessories. Style-savvy members of the Hollywood elite have taken notice of this growing trend. And when done right, the added pattern is an awesome addition to your wardrobe.

I’ve selected a variety of leopard print shoes and handbags that will add just the right amount of pop and pizzazz to your look. So go ahead and dare to take a little walk on the wild side with leopard print shoes and handbags for fall!

Who said rain boots had to be boring? I have a feeling once you try these boots, you’ll be wearing them come rain or shine.

Steve Madden Jaagg Pump

If you’re a little apprehensive about sporting an all-over leopard print shoe, this pump is perfect for you. The Jaagg pump has the typical look of a black patent peep toe, with a touch of leopard print on the platform. If just a little pattern is what you want, this style is for you.

Franco Sarto Valor Sandal

This is a great style for a night out on the town. The Valor sandal will add just the right amount of pop to complement that “little black dress.”  The Valor sandal also comes in black or reptile print.

Steve Madden BLondon Clutch

Sarah Jessica Parker was recently photographed at a Hollywood event carrying a designer leopard print clutch similar to this one. Of course, this one is probably much more affordable. Pair this clutch with your look for a stylish night on the town.

Jessica Simpson Lafayette Satchel

I absolutely love Jessica Simpson shoes and handbags! And this satchel isn’t short on style.  It’s roomy, perfect for errand running, and sports the leopard print pattern beautifully.
