Rowr! Our Favorite Leopard-Print Pieces Under $100

Punch up your wardrobe with a piece of animal print.

Now, we’re the last ones to knock a wardrobe full of solids—hello, countless options for color-blocking—but every closet needs a good kick of print now and then. Though it never really went away, leopard print is huge this fall, and just one piece will work wonders on a lackluster outfit. Concerned the trend is a little too, ahem, fierce for you? Think again. Treat your new animal accent as though it were any neutral, such as a plain black skirt, a white button-down, etc., and dress accordingly. Then leave the house quickly and confidently, before you’ve got time to second-guess yourself. Voilà! Instant fashionista. Check out our slideshow for 12 standout (and affordable!) ways to try the trend.
