A short, fitted skirt in such a sexy print doesn’t need any help in the hotness department. In fact, in both cases, I’ve toned the look down. First, I wore it with flat boots, bright tights, and a long blazer.
Blazer: Bebe via Goodwill
Pleather boots: G by Guess
Jelly bracelets: eBay
Later, I paired it with a billowy top in blue. Blue is unexpected and doesn’t vamp up the look. The tights are opaque and the heels are chunky.
Faux-suede shoes: Old Navy
I found this slip while searching eBay for the term leopard skirt. If you’re looking on eBay, try multiple search terms. For example, animal print or faux leopard. Search in the vintage category if you’re looking for a certain era, type a decade to narrow it down more, or keep the search broad (for example, search all women’s and apparel).
Sometimes I get a lot of results so I filter by price or by which auctions are ending soonest. Try different choices and see what you find. If you’re not looking for a specific item, try fun search terms like boho blouse, scooter dress, or goth skirt to see what comes up. I’ve found interesting items that way. Costume jewelry is fun to shop for too. Type in a descriptor, like owl necklace, or the name of a designer and see what you find. That’s how I found this Vivienne Westwood necklace.
