I’ve heard leopard is a neutral. It’s classic and timeless and it goes with everything–including, I’d argue, stripes, florals, or plaid.
Pleather belt: Truth
I started off tame and wore my leopard pumps with stripes.
I separated the patterns with my Kelly green cropped jeans. I really love denim in all the shades of the rainbow. I have yellow jeans, and red ones and a few other colors.
My shoes, hiding in the grass like a leopard, are a great rubber-soled platform. Comfortable, and sturdy, even when I walk on slippery surfaces.
If you have a pair of shoes that are hard to balance in because the sole is slippery, I recommend getting a shoe repair shop to add a Vibram sole to them. I wrote about Vibram soles last year, and described how they preserve leather-soled shoes. And while I no longer wear leather, the Vibrams will save any sole and improve grip. The tip is still true.

I concur, leopard is neutral, so it goes with any colour, but since it’s a pattern, it could look clashy beside another obvious pattern. That’s why I like how you’ve separated them with your solid green jeans. ❤
You’re right that the solid is a good buffer. It’s a little easier to look at than two bold prints side by side.
