Is it just me or is shopping a bit like being on a Safari trip at the minute! This Summer seemed to be all about the leopard midi skirt and an array of leopard print dresses but this trend has now moved into AW with plenty of Snake skin and Zebra prints on trousers, shirts and the Leopard print trend has moved into denim.
How to wear it
- Keep it tonal and pair your leopard jeans with camel knitwear with a pop of white or wear them with a vintage band T-shirt, leather jacket and trainers for a more casual look. You’ll be surprised how much wear you’ll actually get out of them!
There’s a fine line between the animal print trend looking cool or just plain tacky, here’s a few ideas to try out to avoid a fashion disaster…
- If you’re scared of prints then why not try out the trend with accessories. A mini Leopard or Snake print bag is a cool statement piece and can bring something interesting to a boring outfit as can a pair of animal printed shoes.
- Try a different variation to the classic leopard print dress with a red version – perfect for Christmas time!
- If in doubt jeans and a classic white T is a great pairing for an animal printed coat
So many designers and high street shops are showing an array of animal print items – here’s my fave pieces to shop now!
