Cheetah Tee Now & Later | 22 Days of Fall Fashion

It’s day 12 of 22 Days of Fall Fashion, which means we’re halfway through the series!

I’ve been holding off on sharing this outfit because I was hoping this t-shirt would get restocked… and by some miracle maybe go on sale again. It really is an amazing top and great quality, but even at the #NSale price, it was a major splurge.

Unfortunately, it’s still only available in a few sizes, and it’s still full price. But I love how these photos turned out, and I didn’t want to waste them, so I found a really good budget-friendly replacement option if you want to recreate this look.

This leopard print v-neck t-shirt from Amazon has a very similar color palette, and it’s only $16.99. It obviously has a v-neck rather than a crew, but some of you may prefer that anyway.

It’s also a little bit longer with a slightly more relaxed fit, but when you front-tuck it, it doesn’t really matter.

I really wish I’d thought to shoot this outfit with the Amazon version, but I think you can see that either top works with the rest of the pieces in this outfit.

A leopard or cheetah print tee is such a nice transition piece because you can wear it now with jeans or shorts and sandals, and the color palette gives a nod to fall.

Then when cooler weather arrives, you can swap the sandals for loafers or ankle boots and top it off with a denim jacket or cardigan.

The sandals I’m wearing in the Now outfit are the Marc Fisher Pava slides. They’re still fully stocked and 40% off, and I like how the shiny ball studs and cagey leather upper give the look a bit of an edge.

FYI, I sized down half in these, but I’ve heard others say they run true to size. I often have to size down in slides or I walk out of them.

With the Later version of this outfit, I’m wearing my trusty Everlane Day Loafer Mules. These are such good quality shoes, and very comfortable to walk in.

They’re also 40% off right now, but I recommend sizing up at least a half size in these. They definitely run small.

I’m wearing my black KUT From The Kloth Donna skinny ankle jeans with both looks.

These have a really nice fit, and the raw edges tone down the classic black denim. They run true to size, and they also come in petite sizes.

I accessorized with a few of my favorite Yurman pieces and my rag & bone sunnies.

While I like the simplicity of the first look, I love how the tan and black printed tee layers under a denim jacket. It’s certainly not a combination that’s new or different, but I think the color tones in both of these pieces complement each other so well.

Which is your favorite? Now or Later?
