4 Must-Have Leopard Print Sweaters For Fall

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock the last year or so – leopard print is a big deal so I’m rounding up my top 4 must-have leopard print sweaters for Fall.

If you’re not popping leopard print into your Fall wardrobe, you’ll be missing out on this welcome addition to the neutrals family. I swear, everywhere I turn I spy people going wild with leopard print cardigans to belts, leopard print sneakers, watchbands, earrings, pants, sweaters, t-shirts – you name it. Or maybe it’s just me spying myself in the mirror with leopard everywhere. I guess you’ll never know! LOL

Maybe you’re not sold on the leopard print or you don’t want to look like you are on a jungle safari 24/7 – that’s totally fine. I’ve been in the Obsessive-Compulsive Leopard Disorder club for years now so I have no shame in my game but if you just add these 4 must-have leopard print sweaters into your wardrobe – I think you’ll be both on trend and joining the masses for a walk on the wild side. Rawr! 😉

The Ultra Soft Leopard Sweatshirt

Calling all cozy comfort lovers! These ultra-soft leopard sweatshirts will be a go-to for you all Fall and Winter. Throw them on for a casual weekend outfit or wear them lounging around the house on chilly nights! Once you put one of these on, trust me, it’ll be hard to take them off.

Tip: Size up one if you prefer an oversized fit or size up two, if you want to try and wear with leggings.

I bought this Caslon leopard sweatshirt at this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary sale. The leopard print is out of stock but you can grab the same style in camo. You can check out my full blog post on my 2019 N-Sale favorites here.

The Duster Length Leopard Cardigan

There is no easier way to class up any outfit than with a duster length cardigan. I snagged this one from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale last year and got some great wear out of it.

I’m someone who tends to wear a lot of black so leopard is a natural pairing for me – especially in the winter. There is something about the duster length that just really adds something to your outfit. It draws more attention and you can absolutely wear them with leggings which is a win-win for everyone, right?

I rounded up some duster length leopard print cardigans in all different patterns, prints and price ranges for you.

The Leopard Sweater Pullover

The leopard sweater. Obviously, the most classic and simple way to wear leopard in the Fall. I love pullovers because they’re so easy to pair with denim. This is an everyday outfit for me during the autumn. Leopard sweater pullovers are also easy to pair with slacks for the office.

The Oversized Leopard Sweater or Sweater Dress

The chunky sweater and oversized leopard sweater is all the rage this season. If you add just one into your wardrobe, whether you choose to pair it casually or dress it up for a night out, you’ll be in good shape.

The oversize leopard sweater I’m wearing here is an Amazon Prime favorite and only runs $25. It does take a little extra time shipping – so you’ll have to be patient but it’s a great find. It’s oversized in nature so order your regular size even size down one.

For all my petite gals out there, this passes the fingertip test – so you can most definitely wear this as a dress if you so choose.
