Leopard print is one of those patterns that can look great or can look tacky. Too much can make you look like a jungle freak and too little airs on the side of 'pointless'. With just the right amount, you can make a bold statement. At the Courvoisier Rose One Year Anniversary event at Toy in New York City, Taraji stepped out in leopard print shorts, a long-sleeved chiffon top, and a pair of $1,695 textured leather Givenchy Pre-Fall 2012 foldover riding boots.
Now, Ms. Taraji has the money to drop almost $1,700 on a pair of gorgeous boots; but for those of us that don't, here's how to recreate this fabulous look for less.

- Blouse: Taraji has on a white, long-sleeved button down blouse. A less expensive option is this Petite Ruffle Front Blouse from Ann Taylor for just $29.88. A good, crisp white blouse is a great investment as it can easily go from the office to the dance floor.
- Shorts: Leopard is very hot right now! Try the ASOS Culottes in Animal Print ($24.86) for added flare. As long as the shorts fit well and sport a bold animal print, you're sure to make a statement.
- Boots: Wouldn't we all love to own a pair of $1,700 riding boots? Instead of splurging on these, opt for the Brown Wanted Tribal boots for $44 on Endless.com. You can easily pair these boots with the shorts and blouse to complete this bold yet relaxed look. They have a small heel yet make a big statement.
Total Cost: $98.74 (add tax & shipping)
