From our friends at The Find:
While it’s hard to ignore all the glitz and glitter of most of the season’s celebrated party looks, all that shine can end up looking a little dull in such high doses when everyone at the party is trying to rock it at once! When it comes to accessories, I admittedly always reach for some sort of shiny metallic clutch, statement-making sequins, or your basic goes-with-everything black. However, realistically there are plenty of ways to stand out this winter with eye-catching accessories, sans excessive shimmer! A leopard clutch can amp up the drama of any outfit with its bold print and feline-inspired slinkiness, and depending on the style, can dress up your typical jeans-and-a-blouse ensemble, or put a modern spin on a classic night-out number!
I love the texture of this sleek and compact haircalf clutch from Coach, while this pony hair Skamandros clutch takes it a step further with the added contrast of smooth leather and gold hardware. This bright interpretation of leopard print from See by Chloe, along with its cute pouch-inspired shape, is a fun whimsical take on the trend when you want to carry on just the bare necessities, but if your night out requires something a bit more formal, this satin D&G version puts a refined spin on the wild print!
