Leopard

I feel like I’ve been waiting ages to finally be able to feature this gorgeous leopard calf hair clutch by Clare V. which has been on my “Real vs. Steal“-radar for the longest of times. Even though this zippered clutch has been quite the hit among personal style bloggers, fashion insiders and IGers all over the world, no one seemed to bother coming up with a decent dupe for this coveted animal print clutch which, by the way, retails for $245. When it comes to statement bags I, as a deeply loyal shoes girl, will almost always opt for the cheaper, look-for-less route because I am way too lazy to switch up my bag game on a day-to-day basis. That’s why the handful of bags that I do own hardly ever get as much exposure as they deserve and mostly live in the shadow stashed away in a dark corner of my closet. And even though I’m really loving this particular statement clutch (never ever getting tired of leopard print) and don’t think $245 is an astronomically high price for this wild-looking beauty of a bag, I think I’d prefer not to spend hundreds of dollars on a clutch that might not get me a satisfying cost-per-wear ratio eventually.

BP. Leopard Print Genuine Calf Hair Pouch

And now we’re talking again! The fashion gods seem to have heard my (our?) prayers and so BP. came up with a fabulous leopard print clutch that’s super close to the Clare V. version. Same design, same animal print and same size! What I also really love about this bag – apart from its obvious dupe potential, of course – is that it is made of genuine calf hair just like the real deal, but it’s only $45 instead of $245. Major steal deal alert! Yes, the leopard print calf hair portion is restricted to the front side of the bag only, but that’s totally fine with me. So what are you waiting for? Your next budget-friendly statement clutch buy is ready to ship!

I’m one of those people who-when traveling through airports-will always wear heels (you never know if Mr. Right is flying the friendly skies as well). I can’t always do a 5 inch towering platform though; that’s why this leopard wedge by Mr. Christian Louboutin is perfect for such occasions! Some style and height to go along with a comfy and simple yet sexy outfit. My travel companion? A stiff drink and pretzels instead of peanuts, please. No thank you, Miss, I’d wear my “Peanuts”, not eat them. ūüėČ

Update (05/15/2016): Just spotted another Christian Louboutin Peanut alternative! This calf hair animal print wedge by Kate Spade is surely not a steal at $350, but it is still $495 (!) cheaper than the real deal, so I had to add them to the list.

Update (08/27/2015): Didn’t really expect to find another Louboutin Peanut dupe after such a long time, but doesn’t “Porsha” by Talbots look strangely familiar to you?

Ivanka Trump Linear3 Leopard Wedge Pumps

The designers at Ivanka Trump have virtually copied the Loubutin “Peanut” down to its shell! I must admit I do like the leopard print better on this one and I’m completely nutty about the $150 price tag.

Wow, when did I stop hating leopard print? Because, to be honest, I used to loathe it and the only associations I had with it were aging divas being clad in head-to-toe leopard or cheesy leopard print bedding coming straight out some vintage 70s porno. But this year Alexander Wang worked his magic on me. He created the “Alla” leopard wedge and what used to be hate changed into love and adoration.

Renvy “Sana” Animal Print Calf Hair Peep-Toe Wedge Mules

UPDATE (07/25/2015): When I saw these animal print wedge mules by Renvy, they instantly reminded me of the Alexander Wang Alla leopard wedges above. These are currently on sale for $55 and come also in black, nude, white leather as well as black suede.

Nina “Yaneli” Leopard Wedges

Now $650 is not my typical shoe shopping budget, so I had to wait for someone to come along with a cheaper alternative. And finally, Nina heard my prayers. Well, not only mine but apparently also yours because the Alla leopard wedge was undoubtedly the most requested shoe on InTheirCloset. So here you go, girls! A wonderful Wang-inspired leopard wedge bootie. Now, run, don’t walk, some sizes are already sold out.

Looking back at all the Christian Louboutin designs we have covered here on this blog so far, I realized a lot of the shoes have been pump styles. Which of course shouldn’t come as a surprise because Monsieur Louboutin is exceptionally good at creating lustworthy pumps. But his sandal game is not to be scoffed at. Case in point: the “Athena Alta” t-strap sandals. Their motto: business in the front and party in the back. I love the simple design and the added details that make this shoe stand out in a crowd of simple black sandals. Too bad so much fabulousness comes at a price: at $895, to be exact.

If there was ever a way to wear animal print and look both modern yet elegant, it’s with these faded leopard print jeans by Current/Elliott. They seem to convey a sense of confidence without being overly flashy. Wear them with a simple, solid-color top in a neutral such as white or black and keep your accessories paired down to just one standout piece such as an oversized watch or cocktail ring. Can’t think about spending $200 on a pair of printed jeans? That’s OK, we have a great option for those of us who love denim, but just want to have a little fun with this trend. Check out the details below!

Vanilla Star Leopard Print Skinny Jeans

It’s amazing what Vanilla Star for Target has to offer in the jeans category, and this low-rise pair is no exception. For only a tenth of the price, you can get the same posh designer look the celebrities simply adore. And if you’re trying to decide what shoes to wear with it, you’ll have so many options because the cropped length will work with cute sandals, wedges, pumps, or booties! Just make sure you add a little bit of a heel, as these will definitely bring all kinds of attention to your lower half.

And as if our finds could get any better, Arden B. has an awesome version as well! Although a little bit more expensive than the pair above, they are still pretty affordable and fit like a glove.
