Take a walk on the wild side in your cheetah wedges — definitely high fashion, certainly cutting-edge. If you're at a loss as to what else to wear, just remember, a little animal print goes a long way toward livening up an outfit. By the way, there is technically a difference between cheetah print and leopard print — leopards have large roseate spots, cheetahs have smaller spots packed tightly together — but in fashion practice, the terms have become almost completely interchangeable.
Little Black Dress
Cheetah wedges are the perfect shoe to liven up your little black dress. The shoes add a splash of pattern and color, and a dash of danger. Meanwhile, the classic dress allows you to take this look everywhere, from cocktails to clubbing. You can wear just about any hem height with this combo, but cocktail length or higher is especially nice.
Skinny Legs and All
Skinny jeans plus cheetah wedges equals a look that's relaxed yet edgy. The wedges help your legs look long and lean; the cut of jeans accentuates them further. A loose, casual top — perhaps a band T-shirt, ribbed tank or even a flowing lace blouse — completes the look. You can also wear leggings or jeggings with your cheetah wedges for a similar effect.
Leather It Up
Animal prints plus animal skins equals tough chic. Try a motorcycle-style jacket and a short skirt. Or wear your leather jeans and cheetah wedges for that rock-star vibe. Yes, even a leather mini- or pencil skirt works here too.
Rock the Red
Red is another eye-catching color, so pairing it with cheetah wedges really makes your outfit pop. The warm neutrals of the animal print complement red hues remarkably well. Try a red blouse and black slacks for a very put-together yet daring look. Or choose a red skirt to anchor your outfit. For a real statement, go for an all-red dress and opaque black hose, and hit the town.
