Leopard and Red - the ultimate colour combo

It's often said when wearing a bold print like leopard, it can only be paired with neutral and subtle colours. And while black or white is of course a classy and elegant choice, the new trend of adding red to your leopard look is one were obsessed with. It truly is the ultimate colour combo and here's how you can achieve it.

What is leopard print?

Leopard print is pattern resembling animal print. Different colours can be used but traditionally it is a combination of brown, beige and black tones paired with the classic and well-known animal print pattern silouhette. It is a fun and bold fashion pattern that has stood the test of time for being stylish and a standout look.

Why we love leopard print?

What's not to love with leopard print - it's glam and fashion forward look. It gives the animal energy - bold, daring and fierce - all things we love to feel confident and fashionable. Leopard print has the ability to give a timeless feel of elegance is evoked and is piece you reach for again and again over the years.

Why pair with red?

It matches the intensity and fierceness of leopard print - giving the same energy and topping it. It's fun, eye-catching and playful - it's different and sets you apart from the crows. The red draws out the tones and hues of the animal print and just gives what we can only explain as chic! It beautifully combines block colour and pattern is a unique and stylish way. 

Our style ideas and tips for this combination:

Invest in red pieces that will last - for example, a designer handbag or a luxe lipstick that are quality and will match the luxe vibe you are wanting to serve!

In the outfit combo, we pair the popular Alexa Leopard Shirt, with black skinny jeans and black heels, and introduce a red handbag and red lip that we can appreciate on their own and with the leopard. We also accompany it with simple and classic gold jewllery.



Acessories! Your best friend when it comes to introducing styling into your repertoire. Sometimes experimenting with colour and style can be a little daunting. Acessories are the perfect way to play with and introduce colour combos into your lookbook. A simple pair of red shoes as pictured below might be the fit for you. Otherwise, a charming red belt might feel more you. Set up your mirror at home and try out different looks and see what feels you. Black shades and a clutch are stellar with red also.


Layers are a great way to play with pattern and colours. It creates contrast and is a little less obvious. We love a red coat combined with a leopard blouse - it gives expensive and effortlessly put together. If you're feeling daring, pair with red heels.
