Fashion’s Favourite Feline: Mastering Leopard Print Style

- Advertisement -

When it comes to leopard print, I’m completely hooked. Seriously, about 50% of my wardrobe features those iconic wild spots, and my passion for leopard isn’t fading anytime soon.

And I’m not alone – designers and celebrities are just as enamoured, and the high street is positively roaring with leopard print right now. It’s all over Zara, Mango and Asos.

While leopard print is nothing new, there’s something timeless and exciting about it that keeps it in vogue year after year. It’s a fashion staple that never really disappears – and in 2024, it’s back in a big way.It’s more the cooler tones of leopard print and the silhouettes more loose and oversized.

So, what’s driving this resurgence? The Spring/Summer 2024 runways from brands like Ganni and Nina Ricci were full of wild animal prints.

If you invest in a key leopard piece now, I promise it will quickly become a go-to favourite in your wardrobe.

Need some inspiration? Look to style icons like Kate Moss, who made the leopard print coat a must-have in the 2000s, or Rosamund Pike, who recently stunned in a Dior leopard print pencil skirt and heels on the red carpet. Leopard print has been a fashion favourite for decades and continues to inspire.

Leopard print is surprisingly versatile, making wardrobe basics more exciting and wearable.

Leopard print trousers are trending on Instagram. The key to keeping things contemporary is to choose a pair that aren’t super skinny – straight and loose-fitting legs are in vogue now.

For instance, the Adidas X Wales Bonner Samba sneakers, which feature leopard print, are hugely popular and sold out almost instantly. If you missed out on these Stradivarius have a great alternative and can be worn with dresses to jeans. They add a high-fashion touch to any outfit.

A leopard print coat is another great option – you can throw it over anything for an effortlessly chic look. It’s definitely the most stylish way to embrace the animal print trend. Pick the right one, and you’ll have a timeless piece you can wear season after season, regardless of what’s in fashion. We especially love collarless and longer length jackets for an effortlessly classic look.

Whether you’re ready to make a bold statement with a leopard dress or coat, or you just want a touch of fierceness with a handbag or scarf, there are countless ways to embrace this trend. If the print feels intimidating, start with accessories, hat, scarf , bags or shoes.

The secret to rocking leopard print without looking like you’re channelling ‘Bette Lynch? Pair it with simple, neutral pieces in denim, black, or beige to keep your look chic and balanced.

To add a little summer fun you can team your leopard print with bright colours, like red, pink or even bright green. But the key is to keep it plain, no prints or bold statements.

So, unleash your wild side and let your inner fashion feline shine!
