I live in fear that a stranger will snap a photo of me wearing a leopard midi skirt in the wild, only to be dragged in the comment section of a catty (albeit hilarious) Instagram post. The style has long been considered a neutral wardrobe staple, but its increasing popularity in 2019 has made the style a little too ubiquitous. Seemingly overnight, the leopard midi skirt became a fashionable meme, debasing the classic to pure basic-ness. Sure, social media should have no power over my wardrobe choices, but I can't help but reconsider the spotted look in favor of an option that isn't worn by thousands of my peers (although that would be a really good grid post).
Thankfully, Realisation Par (the brand that kickstarted the trend) just launched a new midi this week. If their gift of predicting it-prints is any indication, you can bet that paisley silk is the next big thing. Get ahead of the influencer curve with their new skirt, plus shop more new styles that aren't leopard print.
