Fall 2014 Trend: Classic Leopard

Leopard print may conjure up slightly dated imagery (“Working Girl,” ’80s New Jersey, “Real Housewives” of pretty much any city), but for Fall 2014, a hefty number of high-profile designers—including CélineSportmax, and Givenchy, and put an elegant, modern stamp on the wild motif.

Often splashed across slightly modest silhouettes like knee-length A-line skirts, trench coats, and skinny trousers, fall’s leopard takes great pains to be decidedly un-tacky—and it succeeds in spades.
