In this new series, we demonstrate how our most avid readers sport the trends in our magazine. Look for it on What's Right Now every weekend, and be sure to try out a look or two yourself and tweet us a photo @InStyle using #inspiredbyinstyle. This week, we’re featuring Reader of the Week Marisa Zerby.I love the "Animal Magnetism" feature in the March issue of InStyle because it showed how diverse the leopard print can be. Not only can it be worn in any array of colors, but it can also be used as both an accent or as a bold, full-on pattern. There really aren't any rules other than to have fun with it! When it came time to try out the trend myself, I layered a fun, yet neutral leopard Boden sweater under an edgy moto jacket from Gap. It still felt feminine-chic with the addition of my rhinestone necklace and suede pumps. I love that I was able to play with a rather monochromatic look but elevated the outfit with the leopard print top.
Plus, check out more of our readers (and find out which stories inspired them) in our March issue with the talented Kerry Washington on the cover, available on newsstands and for digital download now.
