Leopard Love: Leopard Print Handbags
There is something to be said of a closet filled with completely wearable clothing. And while I’m a huge fan of working with a monochromatic wardrobe (hello, versatility!), when it comes to accessories, I’m all about making striking statements. That’s why today I’m featuring some lovely and luxe-looking leopard-print handbags. Leopard print usually has neutral colouring, but the print is typically so vibrant that it really stands out. Leopard print is practical, but it’s also very playful; it’s elegant but it can also be edgy. Priced high to low, let’s look at getting a leopard-print bag that fits your budget.
- HIGH — Jerome Dreyfuss Carlos Leopard-Print Calf Hair Bag ($2010, Net-A-Porter): From French designer Jerome Dreyfuss, whose handbags have been hot commodities since they first debuted in 2002, this leopard-print calf hair bag has expandable zip-fastening sides and a black leather trim. The classic shape of this carry-all makes it a timeless choice that you’ll keep for ages. This Jerome Dreyfuss bag also comes with a removable shoulder strap, so you have the option of wearing it cross-body.
- MID — Antonio Melani Marion Satchel (sale $149.50, Dillards): A mid-priced leopard-print calf hair satchel, this bag by Antonio Melani is the perfect size. Not too big and not too small, this carry-all features a rich leopard print with black leather trim. It zips closed and has several interior pockets for extra storage.
- LOW — Leopard-Print Satchel Bag ($39, Spiegel): Priced at less than fifty dollars, this look for less leopard-print bag is faux leather. With a printed body and dark brown trim and decorative straps. It has one outer pocket and four inner pockets with a top zip closure.
