Animal print shoes can add pizazz to many ensembles. Cheetah print shoes with their timelessness and versatility provide a base for a variety of outfits. When wearing cheetah print heels, choose foolproof shades of clothing to achieve an appropriate pairing. From dresses to denim, skirts to shorts -- use a fierce pair of cheetah pumps to pump up the style on a number of garments in different eye-catching shades.
Black to Basics
Pair basic black pieces with statement pumps in cheetah print. An all-black outfit provides a blank canvas that allows this bold shoe to shine. Allow cheetah print shoes to serve as the focal point of your outfit, whether it's with a black dress in a form-fitting silhouette or a black tunic and skinny jeans,. Add gold jewelry if the monochromatic look is a bit bland for your taste. The warm tones of gold will enhance the same tones found in your cheetah footwear.
White It Out
Like black, white ensembles let cheetah print shoes take center stage. A crisp, white button-down blouse and denim jeans are instantly made more interesting by the addition of cheetah print pumps. Pair a white dress with cheetah heels and a stunning red lip for a sophisticated outfit. A combination of white shorts with a white tank top is equally gorgeous with animal print shoes and gold jewelry. Add a white blazer for an extra dose of classiness.
Nail It In Nudes
Nude tones complement the neutral shades found in cheetah print. A tan sheath dress paired with a gold chain collar necklace and cheetah pumps can be worn at the office, church or to an outdoor wedding. Camel-colored skinny jeans and a sheer button-down blouse in a similar shade showcase this style of shoe as well. For spring and summer, pair your cheetah print heels with tan silk shorts and a beige tank top or gold sequined shirt.
Bring on the Brights
Cheetah and leopard prints can often serve as neutrals, making them safe to pair with bold and bright hues. Whether it's a cobalt blue bandage dress, a hot pink jumpsuit or an orange pencil skirt and matching blouse combination, cheetah shoes tie the entire look together in a cinch. Sport brightly colored denim and a neutral tank top with your heels to form an edgy and elegant outfit. Finish your look with a white, tan or black blazer
