Leopard print isn’t just for the ladies anymore. A long held style staple for the fashion adventurous, leopard print has infiltrated its way into the wardrobes of some of Hollywood’s most influential men. Kanye West, Diddy, Terrence J, they’re all wearing more than a hint of leopard, they’ve gone all out with full on leopard sweaters and jackets.
Kanye wore his leopard look at a recent taping of BET’s 106th & Park. Rocking his Givenchy gabardine leopard bomber jacket from the label’s 2011 Spring/Summer Collection, and paired it with a black Balmain hoodie. Some of you may remember him wearing the same jacket last year during the Paris Fashion shows (SEE HERE)..
If you’re a fella who’s willing to take a risk on leopard, and like the hoodie combination Kanye has on, try this $165 Confetti Leopard Hoody from Confetti. You get the best of both worlds. But if you want that strictly bomber jacket look, try this $75 jacket from YesStyle.
Also on the leopard jacket tip was Terrence J as he hosted an episode of 106th & Park. He rocked a WeSC ‘The Warren’ sweatshirt in camel leopard. No need to look for an alternative for this one, Terrence’s actual jacket retails for a reasonably priced $75 at Karmaloop.
Rounding out ‘the fellas who got on the leopard trend‘ list is Sean Diddy Combs. He’s always at the forefront of what’s fly, and it was no different when Diddy wore an Alexander McQueen Spring 2012 leopard print wool v-neck sweater to the 10th Annual Art Basel Miami. It retails for $875, but try this $54 leopard pullover from YesStyle instead.
