Leap into Leopard: Pre-Fall Looks You Can Wear All Summer

What is pre-fall anyway? As you may have guessed by the name, it is the fashion “seaonlet” that comes before fall but after spring/summer. The pre-fall seasonlet is similar in size to resort season, which comes before summer/spring and is designed to fit people’s vacation style fancies. It is a smaller collection put out by designers to transition between the seasons. Sometimes pre-fall collections will give a hint of what is to come or they can be an extension of the spring/summer line, and other times they stand alone. Even though we’re just barely making it to summer in Seattle, we’re in full pre-fall season at La Ree! One of our favorite forever prints is big this pre-fall—leopard. We’ve selected a few of the great leopard print pieces available now in La Ree.

Nili Lotan Camo Sweater and Viviana PantSilky Sleek
Summer or fall, these silk Nili Lotan leopard pants can be styled to show off your wild side or your house cat side. Pair with a sweater for cool summer nights. Spice up the look by mixing prints, then tone it down with a solid pair of Golden Goose sneakers.

Numero 21 Leopard Skirt Pre Fall

Red Roar
Sport something truly unique with a red leopard long pencil skirt. This statement piece is colorful enough for summer, and dark enough for fall (and even red enough for holiday!) Pair with a simple tee shirt and a long jacket soften the look. Then complete the look with a pair of boots in the fall (shown here) or a pair of simple sandals or sneakers for summer.

Giada Forte Lurex CoatSeasonal Shimmer
As Seattle eases it way into summer over the next couple months, you’ll need something to layer over your summer tee shirts. Then, in fall, it will be the perfect layering piece over your long sleeve for days off, or your dresses for workdays. Dress up or down with heels or flats.

Brighten Your Summer with Lots of Prints!

Wearing a cardigan and a thin scarf, freezing woman Melissa Cady, 34, reportedly walked to work in frigid temperatures today following her decision that it is spring now. “The date is April 8 and it is now springtime and it is beautiful out,” said the shivering, coatless woman as a gust of cold air blasted into her face. “Winter is over. The seasons have changed. I am happy and warm now.” Sources said the woman spent her lunch hour walking along Lake Michigan, vigorously rubbing her hands together and blowing into them.” — The Onion

Melissa, you’re our spirit animal. Even as we’re still struggling through the last few rains of our Seattle spring, summer clothes with lots of prints remind us that warmer days are on the horizon. If you’re like Melissa, you’ve decided that spring is here, no matter what the weather is doing and that means it’s time to shop for and wear spring and summer clothes.

So, what to wear? We’ve been reviewing the looks from Paris Fashion Week and it’s clear that head-to-toe prints are trending this summer. We’re so on board.
