This season has been chock-full of unique trends. From the epic return of '90s styles likes hair clips and cargo pants to fleece pullovers that are just as cozy as they are stylish, it can seem impossible to incorporate more than one bold trend into your day-to-day outfit. If you've been eyeing all things animal print but can't seem to shake your love for menswear-inspired suiting, Jasmine Tookes' leopard-print blazer is the official answer to your prayers.
Celebrities have worn sophisticated suits for just about every occasion this season, including red carpet appearances and street-style moments throughout fashion month. Blake Lively, Olivia Wilde, and Naomi Watts are just a few members of the suit-obsessed bunch. Meanwhile, animal print has veered its head over the past few months as another serious contender for a top trend in the fashion world. Appearing on warm, fur coats and even tailored trousers, this wild style isn't going away anytime soon.
Model Jasmine Tookes' made a convincing case for combining the two trends when she was photographed in New York City on Tues. wearing a bold-blue, leopard-print blazer. The 27-year-old model, who was attending fittings for the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, paired the statement jacket with a black mock-neck crop top, leather pants, and pointed ankle boots. She kept the rest of her look simple by adding a black, quilted purse and oversized sunglasses, and she pulled her hair into a sleek low ponytail.
As Tookes' demonstrates so well, it's easy to elevate an otherwise simple outfit with this major statement piece. The best part is you can wear it to work, to dinner, or even on a night out. Ahead, shop Tookes' exact blazer, along with The Zoe Report's favorite leopard-print jackets on the market.
