It’s no secret that here at Shoes of Prey we love leopard. With that classic but bold print comes a little styling dilemma… what shoes do you wear with a little leopard print dress? See below for some of our suggestions.

Very recently it was my birthday and one of my gifts was this fabulous leopard print dress. I admit, I am a teeny bit nervous about wearing it — it is very figure hugging and it's very bold (I'm currently on the hunt for the perfect big-shouldered, cropped jacket to wear over it) but I am so excited about it, which naturally got me to thinking about my next pair of shoes…

I've purposely steered away from anything that covers the front of my foot — so no ankle boots, no ruffles, no Mary Janes, no t-bars, no gladiators. The reason why is that with this dress is I am trying to "look long" and I am afraid that anything covering the top of my foot will cut me off.

My pick? A 4.5 inch stiletto heel in nude patent leather. Nude shoes are brilliant for making legs look longer than long — so this is kind of perfect for the look I want to try to achieve with this dress.
