Minimalism is Key
When wearing leopard-print footwear, always keep other accessories to a bare minimum. While accessorizing isn't a complete no-no, letting your shoes do the talking can guarantee enough attention.
You can love them or hate them, but you just can't ignore them. Welcome to the world of leopard prints! What is it about this animal-inspired pattern that makes it so popular? The print has been immortalized on shirts, pants, jackets, clutches, belts, earrings ... the list is endless. But if there is one accessory that has truly been the brand ambassador of animal prints, it is the humble pair of shoes. From stilettos to wedges, and ballet flats to sneakers, you can find shoes flaunting this print in every shoe shop there is. And this season is all about embracing this print in its entirety.

To someone whom the world of prints (let alone leopard print) is scary, wearing the same can never be an easy task. Going all black or all white is the easier way of styling these shoes. Buzzle gives you some much-needed inspiration so that you are tempted to play around with colors, fabrics, and even other patterns.
