The Look for Less - Réalisation Par Naomi Wild Things Leopard Skirt

It's the slip skirt that everyone seems to be wearing on social media. You know the one. It's got a timeless leopard print, falls below the knee, and is a silky, bias-cut beauty. It looks amazing on everyone and transcends seasonal trends with its classic print and simple silhouette. If you're finding yourself yearning for the Réalisation Par Naomi Wild Things leopard print skirt, you're in good company. It's popular with good reason! Not only is animal print everywhere this season, it's easy to style for work, weekends, or fancier occasions. I love the skirt just as much with sneakers and a T-shirt as with a camisole and minimal heels. During the colder months, style it with over-the-knee boots, a chunky knit, and a wool coat. See how these street style stars wear it.

The skirt retails for $180, which may not be suitable for many budgets. 

The Look for Less

If the $180 price point is out of your budget and you're looking for a Réalisation Par leopard skirt dupe, there are many alternatives for getting the look for less.

Here are my favorite Réalisation Par leopard print skirt look alikes.

The Look for Less - Staud Shirley Bag

The Staud Shirley bag taps into some of the top trends of 2018: transparent accessories, a chic top handle, and an Insta-worthy and eye-catching photogenic quality. The roomy tote bag shape and interior removable pouch add functionality, while the top handle evokes a simple yet sophisticated look. Carry it with or without the pouch, depending on your mood or handbag contents. 

You've likely seen the Shirley bag in the hands of your favorite influencers. The popular bag-within-a-bag comes in a variety of colors and sizes, and with a price point around $200, it's a purchase that won't leave you with buyer's remorse or an empty bank account. The croc-effect leather versions make it look luxurious, while the PVC gives it a modern look. If you're not into the clear styles, there are also glossy versions in black or pink without the transparent PVC.

The Look for Less - Chloé Tess Bag

If the Chloé Faye, Drew, Nile, or Pixie bags are on your style radar or in your closet, then you may also like the Chloé Tess bag. Best described as a hybrid between the Drew bag (for its chic equestrian saddle shape) and the Faye bag (for its polished ring hardware), the Tess crossbody bag is one of the latest must-have bags from Chloé. In true Chloé form, it is versatile because it can be carried by a top handle or worn casually across the body. Here's how some of my favorite influencers have worn it recently.

The compact design makes it easy to fit just the essentials, while the signature ring detail elevates the look. I love the rich shade of reddish brown paired with neutrals. Like other Chloé bags, the Tess comes in an array of sizes and colors
