Leopard Print And Velvet


Leopard Print J Brand Jeans With Velvet Accessories

There’s two things in fashion that I absolutely adore and that’s velvet and leopard print. Combining the two together in an outfit? Pure joy! I got these J Brand Alana High Rise Crop Jeans in Golden Leopard from the brand and when I received them, I just knew how perfect they would be. I’ve had leopard print jeans before, a grey pair and a burgundy pair from Current/Elliott, but I’ve never had the traditional orange shade, so these are gorgeous! As I’m feeling the warmer hues and brown tones, they are perfect, so I just know that they’re going to get a lot of wear.

I decided to style these jeans with my Zara knitted jumper and then layer my Topshop tan coat over the top to keep with the brown and cream theme. As I absolutely adore velvet though, I wanted to finish this off with velvet accessories which is why I went with my Chanel Small Boy Bag in Bordeaux Velvet and my Alice + Olivia Velvet heels. It was a happy accident actually that the shoes match the bag in terms of colour, so that was a dream come true when I realised! I really like how the outfit turned out as it’s a lot more fun and colourful than what I’ve been gravitating towards lately.

The weather has been crazy lately though, hasn’t it? For those of you here in the UK anyway. It was lucky that Adam and I got these photos shot before it started to rain, we had minutes to spare, but the days since then have been pouring and extremely windy. I don’t want to leave the house! I actually ended up getting a few rain spots on my bag which I’m hoping will dry out because I don’t want those marks to stay on there forever. I really hope not! Do you have any tips on getting water marks out of delicate velvet? Anyway, let me know what you think of my leopard and velvet outfit in the comments below, I would love to know, from a fashion bloggers and readers point of view!


What I Was Wearing:

    Love this outfit! Everything is gorgeous and well put together. I especially love the velvet heels. I was wearing a velvet leopard skinny scarf by Jayley yesterday! Gorgeous combination. πŸ™‚

    Velvet Chanel, how absoooooolutely fhhhhabulous dhhharling! I’m so about leopard print its redunkulous, so these jeans are a winner for me and you can dress them down or up depending on what you pair them with so I belive they are the jeans that will keep on giving. Hope your tummy is feeling better hon. Mine is seriously bloated at the moment but that could be due to tooootal lack of exercise! ( :

      Thank you so much, you’re always really kind with your comments and I appreciate it! My tummy isn’t too bad at the moment, it’s up and down so much, sorry yours isn’t doing well either. I’m glad you love the outfit though, thank you! Leopard is a huge love of mine (:

    Wow Lorna I love this outfit! You look stunning and very sassy! It was a happy coincidence that your velvet bag and shoes match perfectly! They really complete the look with the unexpected burgundy, and give a grown-up elegance to the look. This is a really creative ensemble, and I love this blog post. Keep up the good work!

    Lots of love Saba xx

      Thank you so much, Saba! I’m so happy you love it. It’s definitely a lot more creative and I was feeling very experimental!

      • November 25, 2016 / 9:51 pm

        Sometimes it’s really nice to dress differently to how we would typically. Your experimental approach definitely paid off! xx

    Are they made out of genuine leopard or are you a cheetah? πŸ˜‰

    Sorry… Hard to resist!

    The jeans look fabulous and they’re certainly a very striking look and very attention grabbing, I’m sure. I like how the different browns are working together and the coat is absolutely perfect. πŸ™‚ It’s all perfect for autumn.

    Yes, absolutely crazy weather and today I actually didn’t leave the house!

      Ha ha, that actually did make me laugh πŸ˜€ I’m really glad you like it all πŸ™‚

    Lorna, you look beautiful as always… I love look of the velvet on you, the shoes are really pretty and I adore leopard print… xox

    We have been having our fair share of rain lately, my oldest daughter likes to say it has always been like that but I don’t recall that… I just want to get working from home before the snow hits… I don’t want to travel in it again for another year…

    Sorry I have not been around, I just left without saying much, depression does that to a person. I really did miss everyone so much and already I am quite happy I have back… there is a lot of catching up to do… xox

      Hi Launna,

      It’s ok, I knew you were in a bad place from your last blog post so I’m happy you’re doing a lot better. I’ve been through a lot of personal things as well and haven’t been mentally great for a while, so I completely understand. Happy to have you back!

    By the way, I’ve just read your latest diary entry but there doesn’t appear to be a comment box on the page at the moment.

    • November 18, 2016 / 5:59 pm

      That was weird! Some reason it was disabled! How odd! I’ve put it back on!

  8. November 18, 2016 / 2:05 pm

    I love that the bag matches the shoes too, it’s an adorable combination! And as for the bag, obsessed with the color in combo with velvet. I mean, how good and perfect for fall?! Loved this outfit babe! Xx

    I adore your leopard jeans. Happy accident for real, I love the shoes and especially love the boy bag. You wear burgundy so well and look so lovely Lorna. It drizzled here today and being a rain lover, I was overjoyed and kept my fingers crossed that it would storm but sadly it didn’t. Oh well, maybe next time.


    • November 20, 2016 / 11:49 am

      Lol, you should come here, we’re currently experiencing Storm Angus and it’s not nice! It’s been raining for 3 days straight now. So happy you love everything though! Thank you!

  12. November 20, 2016 / 12:19 pm

    The bag is soo stunning! I’m in love.

      Thank you, it has warm undertones of burgundy so it matches well πŸ™‚

    If someone had said leopard print with velvet including classic Channel bag, I wouldn’t have thought it would work. However, this looks like a classic autumn look with a twist, thanks for sharing. Love the channel bag πŸ™‚

    I really love leopard print too. It’s such a fun playful print to wear whether it is on a skirt or pants. Love how you wore it with the tan coat. That coat is so pretty and ties everything together so nicely! I personally don’t have much in velvet so I don’t know how to get water stains out.

    I also love to wear something leopard from time to time. I am all for floral prints, but why not to switch to leopard for a while? So, I had similar pants and loved them. Your outfit is very classy and feminine and I think this coat has incredibly beautiful colour πŸ™‚
