I still like leopard, but now that I am more mature and, hopefully, have better taste, I appreciate the print in smaller doses. Over the past few years, I've introduced leopard into my wardrobe in the form of accessories, be it my signature Clare V. leopard clutch or a belt or maybe some shoes. I've had a leopard print skirt on my wish list for a while, but never found the perfect one. Often, leopard prints can look a bit loud or cheap, so I was happy when I found this tie-waist leopard skirt from J.Crew. I love the style, which is not too tight nor too loose, and the fabric, although some reviewers, legitimately I think, claimed the skirt feels a bit like a raincoat. Pairing the skirt with ladylike accessories, such as my baby pink "Jackie" cardigan and nude pumps, also classes it up a bit too. Although I personally wouldn't wear the skirt with head to toe leopard like Fran Drescher would have worn, I still think it's a great leopard item that would make her character on The Nanny proud!
