Help! How Do I Wear These Pants?

I don't mean that literally. I know that the only way to put pants on is "one leg at a time". But I could use some help figuring out how to wear my first ever pair of rock-chick leopard pants without looking like Peg Bundy.
Here's what happened: Recently, I've been buying basic pieces to support my work wardrobe. So I haven't been buying things that emphasize my wild side - and as many of you already know, I do have one! Well, yesterday, on a whim I purchased these Tripp leopard print pants from Torrid, WHICH I LURVE:




Don't laugh! I really like these. But have you ever bought something and then realized afterwards that you have no where to wear that particular item? That might be what happened here. So I'm asking for help. How would you rock these pants? (And I know some of you just wouldn't.) I've been able to pull off much wilder things that this in the past, but I could use some tips this time. How would you wear them? And is it at all possible to wear them to work? Help!

Hmmm. My instinct is to say wear 'em with lots of black. A black tee with a giant black scarf piled around your neck, and some black boots. Or a black tank and black blazer and a nice long necklace, with pumps. If they're heavy enough for winter, you could dress them up with a black twinset or pair them with a black v-neck and red pumps.

As for work ... I'd say save them for casual Fridays, unless you've got a pretty casual workplace already. Just my guess!

I agree 100% about the black - I would rock those pants with some awesome black platform boots and a black blazer/tee shirt combo. And it's all about the jewelry!!

I say definitely team with all black and great shoes- like Julie Christie.... http://estb.msn.com/i/2C/40E08054D9683F8CA967E94AB6AF80.jpg

Definitely wear them for anything and everything! I'd say work if you can pair them with a dressy shoe and blazer and super classy jewelry. Go out to a bar after and slip on a sexy black club-appropriate top and stilettos.
BTW, I am so jealous of these pants! I might have to make me some.:)
