Lily Collins' Leopard Skirt Makes A Case For The Colored Animal-Print Trend
Lily Collins is one statement-making style star, whose eclectic fashion taste really comes out when she's walking any sort of red-carpet event. At the 2019 Met Gala, the Love, Rosie actor wowed in her camp-y getup, complete with iconically big hair and bold makeup. And in the past, she's churned out extra-glamourous ensembles the fashion police couldn't help but fawn over. While you might think, then, that her off-duty looks are just as over-the-top, you'll be surprised to know she prefers decidedly more low-key pieces when she's not posing in front of the camera. Enter, Collins' purple leopard-print skirt, the latest piece to be worked into her laid-back street-style approach. What's more, it's well within your reach, too.
On July 10, Collins was photographed at a West Hollywood eatery, chatting and grabbing lunch with a friend. The warm L.A. summer day called for lightweight pieces — and that's exactly what the actor reached for prior to heading out the door for her busy Weds. afternoon. No denim cutoffs, slip dresses, or jumpsuits were in sight, but rather another classic warm-weather staple: an easy, breezy mid-length skirt that makes a case for a colorful leopard-print motif.
The skirt in question hails from Endless Summer, a California-based label that offers up trend-forward, boho-chic pieces that make day-to-night dressing effortless. Better yet, the offerings are very affordable, and Collins' skirt is perhaps the best example of the brand's Cali-cool approach. It features an of-the-moment purple leopard print, a high side slit, and retails for a reasonable $138.
Collins teamed the skirt with a black tank top with tie-front detailing, Chanel flower stud sandals, a pair of rounded sunnies, and a classic black handbag. By keeping the rest of the pieces simple and understated, the actor allowed the fun skirt to remain front and center.
It's worth mentioning that Collins' skirt is ushering in a new era of the leopard-print trend, where colorful spots are reigning supreme (sorry, classic brown-and-yellow motif). Of course, poppy-hued zebra stripes and neon snakeskin are a thing this season, too.
