I find it pretty amazing how long leopard has been sticking around. This jungle cat pattern is definitely bold and brash, but lots of ladies are embracing it by wearing it strategically: Just one piece is more than enough. Kate Walsh did it just right as an accent to denim and black, and both Rihanna‘s headband and Rachel Zoe‘s booties were worn in the same vein. All three ladies kept the rest of their ensembles simple and low-key, and chose leopard as a ‘pop’ that keeps things interesting.

We’re big fans of Rachel Zoe over here at Portero–besides partnering with the stylist for our fabulous Hermes Kelly giveaway, we also can’t get enough of her personal wardrobe. So you can imagine my excitement when I heard about her first ever ready to wear line for Fall 2011, and now the pictures are finally here! Although she wasn’t able to do a full blown runway presentation in NYC (because she’s about to have a baby), she did present the collection to buyers and editors about a month ago.
I’m really loving the updated ’70s style she showed, especially the tailored wide-leg pants, blouses and ultra sexy suits à la Bianca Jagger. Plus, all of the fur she showed was faux, which is easier on the wallet and the conscience. If you’re digging the ’70s chic, make sure you check out our featured set of items inspired by the disco decade.
