So go get your leopard print dress out of your wardrobe and grab a bit of styling inspiration right from this guide. To rock a leopard dress all you need is the right type of jewelry.
But how do you know if your jewelry is the right type? Well don’t worry, I’m going to help you with exactly that over here. So let’s see what color palette goes the best with a leopard print dress.
What Colors Complement A Leopard Print Dress?
Leopard print falls in the category of neutral color shades because it is a combination of brown and black. There are numerous ways to create a color contrast with a leopard print.
Pair it with Neutral Shades
You can either pair it with similar neutral shades to create a casual laid back look. Or you can even pair a leopard print with bright vivid colors to make a statement.
If you want a subtle natural style, pair it with a similar brown shade, black or even white. They don’t draw attention away from the leopard print yet effortlessly make the look complete.
Rich Earthy Tones
Anyway, if you’re not in the mood for a dull boring look, then you can consider adding a pop of color with the help of your accessories. Use a brighter color palette for your jewelry to accentuate the beauty of your leopard print dress.
Rich earthy colors such as green, purple, turquoise, and orange look surprisingly very amazing with such dresses. Such muted and flat colors paired with a leopard print dress catch a lot of attention and are an infallible way to make a statement.
What Color Accessories Look Good With A Leopard Print?
Since leopard print is a combination of two neutral colors, it can be paired with many different colors of accessories. You don’t need to shy away from trying unusual colors because honestly, nothing looks more appealing than bright colors that pop on the dull leopard print.
The options of accessorizing with a leopard print are endless. Over here, we’ll be looking at some of our top favorite combinations that you can try out with your leopard print dresses as well.
However, you need to keep in mind not to over accessorize yourself. Leopard print itself gives quite a complete look and needs only a few additions when it comes to jewelry.
Key point: Less is more when accessorizing a leopard print dress
What color earrings go with a leopard print dress?
A basic guideline about the color combinations that can be used with a leopard print dress has already been mentioned. But I’d like you to have a look at my top picks for earrings that look stunning with different types of leopard print dresses.
Casual and Sophisticated
For a casual and sophisticated look, the best bet is to pair your leopard print dress with earrings that blend well with the colors of the dress.
The thought of earrings in a combination of gold with some shades of black sounded pretty promising to me. Hence, I began the search for something similar and when I saw these transparent black diamond earrings caged in gold plated wires I absolutely fell in love with them.
They’ll look great with a long leopard print dress and equally complement a casual leopard tee or a skirt.
Bright and Funky
To add a pop of color to your outfit, you can go with bright colors such as bottle green, yellow, red, or orange. The warm hue of these colors complement the neutral shades of the leopard print.
My idea of adding color to a leopard print dress looks something similar to this pair of earrings.
The red garnet stone set in 14k gold is perfect for any casual or everyday styling. Or you can pair it with a necklace in contrast to accentuate your look and make it festive.
My last recommendation for earrings is definitely going to be something that you can take inspiration from, for a party or a special occasion. For a party or special event, I’d suggest you to go with something more delicate and exquisite.
This pair of emerald green crystal earrings is one of my favorites
These earrings create the perfect balance of sophistication, elegance and class. Also, such bright colors draw attention towards the face and ultimately towards the attire as well.
What color necklace complements a leopard print dress?
For necklaces, I’d strongly suggest you to go with bright and vivid colors such as orange, red, purple, turquoise, green and blue. Colors like these create a very alluring contrast with a leopard print outfit.
On the other hand, if you want to choose necklaces in similar shades such as brown or black, DON’T! Black or brown necklaces do not really complement the dress and eventually give an appearance of color bleeding.
Anyway, I’ll recommend you to go for chunkier and brighter necklaces in warm or lighter hues.
Layered and Chunky Necklaces
One of my go to options to pair with leopard print outfits is this turquoise layered and beaded necklace.
Such type of necklaces look especially stunning with halter necks as well as turtle necklines. For a chic bohemian look, this necklace is a perfect choice.
Next in line is a chunky pearl choker necklace in purple that looks incredible with almost every type of leopard print dress. Be it a leopard print jacket, off shoulder dress, a scoop neck gown or even a Tee.
This choker will help you effortlessly make a statement with your leopard print outfit.
For a Minimalist look
But then, there are days when you don’t want to go too over the top with your accessories. Such days call for minimalistic jewelry. For that I’ll recommend small gold pendants or vintage double layered necklaces.
For instance, this bar pendant in solid 14 k gold looks gorgeous with V necks or a plunge neckline.
This pendant is a perfect choice if you want to keep your look minimal and casual.
What color ring goes with a leopard print dress?
Well, I’ll not talk much about colors in case of rings. We’ve been into that a bit too much already.
But I must say that I am big fan of pairing classy vintage and bohemian rings with leopard print outfits. The exquisite sterling silver rings with shiny Cubic Zirconia do not look as stunning as vintage rings.
This cocktail arnelian ring in bright orange color, for instance, is sure to make a statement when paired with a leopard print dress.
Similarly, this vintage turquoise ring in sterling silver has my heart. The bright turquoise stone is the best way to add a splash of color to your look.
Lastly, for anyone who can’t resist to wear black, go for a black ring with your leopard print outfit.
This black ring is absolutely gorgeous. The tiny crystal of this ring will add a subtle sparkle to your look and the black stone paired with a golden ring frame complements the leopard print dress like no other.
Honestly, I can’t get my eyes off this beauty.
Leopard print is a very versatile attire. You can rock it on a casual day by pairing it with denim or you can go for dresses or gowns for a party or formal event. But whatever you do make sure to accessorize yourself appropriately. Limit the jewelry to one or two things. Make a nice color contrast and you’ll be good to go!
