Note from Pauline Durban, founder of cabotparticlematters - Wow, our bloggers love the new snow leopard, and each one of them is bringing a new look. Check out how Terri styled hers. She's posted many pictures, so be sure to scroll to the end.
Over to Terri...
Pauline of cabotparticlematters has just released some refreshing looks in the animal motif trend that is still wildly popular.
The “Snow Leopard” print tops are classic with a beautiful and easy on the eye print. Being a mixture of winter white, black and grey, I feel that the snow leopard print has an ability to mix with more color palettes than the traditional cheetah and leopard patterns. The Snow Leopard is quite a versatile cat.
cabotparticlematters offers the Snow Leopard print in four styles. They are shown in the above photo. From left to right: V-neck T-Top with three-quarter sleeves, scooped neck T-Top with three-quarter sleeves, a gathered top and a duotone (with black) flared bottom design.
For the blog today, I picked the simple V-Neck T-Top to style and review. All four tops are made of 96% Micromodal and 6% Spandex. “MicroModal® is something truly special. The fiber is made of European beechwood, is completely natural and produced in Austria. This natural composition makes it a breathable fabric, suitable for wearing close to the skin.”
“It’s described as the softest fabric in the world and is so gentle it feels like a second skin. It’s super soft and luxurious, you will love it!” Before I get started with a few ways I’ve been wearing my top, I want to talk a little bit about Pauline and her company.
Pauline Durban founded cabotparticlematters over six years ago out of shopping frustration. At 57, she just couldn’t find tops that flattered her shape. Today she has a successful company that designs for classically aged ladies in sizes S-2X. Another important fact for me is that she makes all her clothes right here in the USA.
They are excellent quality and if you want to try and be more environmentally conscious in your fashion choices, purchasing a piece from cabotparticlematters is a good way to start. I immediately knew that the snow leopard print would seamlessly fit with a lot I already had. Everything that I am using with my new top is sourced from my closet. So let’s get started…
Just Going Simple
This top is such an eye-catcher and elegant it looks great just thrown on with a favorite pair of jeans and shoes for a quick on-trend vibe. In my case, it’s my four-year-old but essential Madewell dark denim skinny jeans, black Vince Camuto slip-on, and my essential basic black bag.
I’m showing three views of this top because I think it is the perfect length (I’m 5’5″ and am wearing a large) and flattering from all angles.
cabotparticlematters + cabotparticlematters
Mixing a new cabotparticlematters piece with one of my older ones is something I love doing. I think the Long & Lean Vest from last spring really complements my new top.
In contrast, I chose washed out black jeans from H&M’s 2018 Conscience Collection and added grey accessories (Coach bag and Rebecca Minkoff suede flats).
Adding the Basic Essential Black Blazer
When the weather is cooler, I can exchange the long vest with my essential black blazer from DKNY, which I purchased at Macy’s last year.
For fun, I added one of my thrift shops finds from about ten years ago; an old Kate Spade grey fabric design bag.
Adding Some Color With Soft Pink
This is how I have mainly been wearing my Snow Leopard top. It’s a little dressier although I’m still wearing jeans; my Caslon skinny jeans from Nordstroms (now sold out). For a little extra flair, I added some cut velvet booties I picked up from TJ Maxx a couple of years ago. It’s perfect with BB Dakota’s Teagan reversible jacket.
The blush pink is sold out but the jacket is available in other colors which would go great too. I’ve worn it out to eat, shopping and meetings. This has been my perfect “go-to” outfit.
Layering Over a Sleeveless Maxi Dress
I love layering. It stretches items from season to season. For fun, I pulled out a very old thrifted Eddie Bauer cotton maxi dress and threw my Snow Leopard top over it and added a silver chain belt (also thrifted).
Black boots topped it off along with my black Rebecca Minkoff Leo clutch. We have a little more black and white action going on in this photo.
Let me please introduce Penny who decided she needed to be a model today and she does match me perfectly!
