Leopard As A Neutral?

I know many bloggers and fashionistas call leopard a neutral, but I just don’t get it. I love leopard print and I want to collect everything in it, but I wouldn’t call it a neutral. Leopard print is simple and classic, so it goes with a lot, but not everything.
 Calling leopard print a neutral gives people the wrong idea. Unlike a white t-shirt or jeans you can’t throw on you leopard print flats or scarf with just anything. There is an art to mixing prints and colors. I have by no means come even close to mastering the art of mixing prints, textures, and colors, but I have found a few great ways to wear my leopard print flats. 
The outfits above makes the flats seem like a small piece of my outfit, almost unnoticeable. But that is far from the truth. They are my favorite part of the outfit and pull the whole thing together. I tried mixing the leopard print and stripes and I have to say, I like it. By throwing my favorite jacket over top the stripes button-up the two prints aren’t screaming out you. 
I hope to be a pro at mixing patterns one day and if I’m lucky I might one day be just as good as Blaire from Atlantic-Pacific
 Hope everyone is having a good start to the week!
