Because yes, there was a leopard print post just last week, and I would not typically do another so soon, but this Current Elliott skirt is burning a hole in my shopping cart over at Shopbop, and when I can’t get something out of my head, I find it helps to share. Here’s how I’m picturing it: sized up so it sits a bit lower on the hips and falls a touch closer to the knees, and dressed down with a tee and flat sandals, or platforms that are on the chill side. Can you picture it? Should I go for it?

    Yes, do it! Then post a pic of you in it.

  2. Jen says:

    I love it.

  3. Tara says:

    Absolutely! I would call that print a neutral.

  4. Dianne says:

    Yes! Go for it!

  5. farha bano says:

    LOVE it, too!

    Nice alternative to printed skinny jeans, esp for when it warms up – a great neutral for summer!

    love it! my wallet is safe since they don’t have in anything remotely close to my size. i’m never sure about “sizing up” in CE. i feel like it always does this weird pouchy thing around my crotch – not pretty. but i have stupidly narrow hips which could account for that.

    I bought that skirt a few weeks ago. Don’t size up unless you are large in the middle. The waistband has a bit of a gap to it, so I actually feel I need to wear a belt, which I never do.

    Also, the color can sorta make legs look paler if they are already pale….FYI.

    Other than these two things, I like the piece a lot and would recommend it.

  8. Caroline says:

    Yes. It’s a a go.
    You’ll wear it all summer!

  9. c.w. says:

    love. it.

    Great with tan legs (which I have never had, do not have and will never have).

  11. Lisa says:

    I would. Those zippers…

  12. I hate to be the only dissenting comment but those pockets look oddly placed. I always figure if it doesn’t look right on the models then chances are it won’t look right on me. (Since they are paid to look perfect and I am just trudging along towards sixty trying to hold Father Time at bay.) But I would be all over a leopard print skirt- just question whether that is the one.

    That is really cute

  14. Turner says:

    That is really fun. Give it a spin and let us know how it works out.

  15. grechen says:

    of course go for it!! i will echo lisa: those zippers…they make up for the leopard print 😉

    but wait until tomorrow to order, they’re starting their F&F sale – 25% off…

  16. Mamavalveeta03 says:

    YES! A thousand times yes! And that’s exactly the way I would wear it.

    We’re of a certain age. Leopard is our mascot.

    Grechen, as usual, has the BEST info

  18. Tammy says:

    Love, love it. You’ve got a good plan to order one size up. The pattern is outstanding. Typically, I don’t like animal prints, but this is terrific.

  19. Colleen says:

    Love it! Such a mellow color scheme, and the zippers add a lot of interest.

  20. Mary Alice says:

    I say, go for it. I have a J Crew leopard pencil skirt that I took to a tailor and had lined. I wear it ALL the time. sweater, tights, boots in winter, t-shirt & flip flops (I am, after all, in southern california) when it’s warm enough. you’ll wear it for years.

  21. Bella says:

    YASSSS. Especially with the 25% off code going on right now!

  22. Elise says:

    Yes !!
