Stab Recommends: The Vans x Leila Hurst Feline Fatale Capsule

Because what gal doesn’t need pink leopard-print in her life?

Pangolin will certainly not be the next fashionable fabric pattern. Instead, we’d recommend sticking with something daring but familiar in these confusing times.

For example: a salmon-hued but otherwise discreet leopard print, like the capsule Leila Hurst just dropped with her long-time sponsor, Vans.

Leila’s collection reminds us of her inherent enthusiasm for life paired with a desire for comfort in each of her daily activities. It’s a fresh and colorful capsule that will add a splash of flair to the simplest of black outfits and provide ladies with an offbeat touch to their wardrobes.

Take a look below at four of our favorite pieces.

Slip-on SF

At a time when humans remain locked in their homes, it’s important to keep some animal energy in our lives. The Slip-on SF is adaptable to everything, be it an exhausting jaunt from the couch to the kitchen and back or even down to the store for a re-stock on wine. It’s our favorite item of this capsule, ideal from the street to the beach, and the Vans slip-on never goes out of style.

Ranger Backpack

This is the must-have of the Vans collection. The Leila Ranger bag has all of the technical aspects covered—ergonomic straps, lappy pocket, water bottle holders, etc.—but more importantly, it adds a visual lightness to your load. A fresh and clean aethetic paired with pure funciton, the Ranegr bag is perfect for any excursion, be it a beach day, hike, or discreet bank robbery. No one will suspect the gal wearing a pink leopard backpack…

Black Tee

The black cotton jersey with rolled sleeves should be a staple in every modern woman’s wardrobe, for the simple fact that it goes with just about anything. Woke up late for work—perhaps with a throbbing head—and need to throw on something cute but understated, as to avoid unwanted attention? This is your go-to. Friends are heading from the beach to the bar and you need something to wear over your bikini? Slip into this lovely crop top (paired with jean shorts, ideally)!

If you’re walking anywhere near 10,000 steps per day (first of all, how?) and you’re not wearing the Vans UltraRange, you might as well be running your poor little piggies through a meat grinder because there is no shoe more comfy and durable on the move-your-body market. Add a little leopard print for style and agility, and you’re straight sprinting into summer.
