With scripture telling us there’s nothing new under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1:9) It’s no surprise to see the leopard print trend revived once again and we’re not mad about that. The timing of this comeback is perfect for all the Mel B fans with the recent announcement of the Spice Girls reunion because stores across the high street and luxury markets are purring with the bold print.
One thing with this ‘in your face’ print is you can either look extremely stylish or OTT, so whether you’re a seasoned veteran like Coronation Street’s Bet Lynch or a newbie to the trend here are 6 ways to incorporate (more) or introduce the feline print into your wardrobe.
The Scarf: Why not try a chic leopard print scarf. There are a number of scarves out there with the gorgeous print. Team it up with a black on black ensemble with some cute ankle boots. Whether you're on a budget or got the cash to splash, here's a few high street and high end options.
The Coat: Yes, you guessed it! The faux fur coat is a bold way to add this trend into your wardrobe. This may be slightly outlandish for some but it is a great way to give some oomph to a basic outfit and jazz it up. Red lipstick and leopard print will add that extra look of glam or for the day, team it up with a pair of jeans and a simple sweater. Here's a few faves from both ends of the market :)
The Bag: My all-time favourite accessory! And a leopard print one can be a winner when worn at the right time. Try a clutch or cross-body bag with a smart boyfriend blazer and cigarette trousers for a sleek and chic look. Here's our picks from what's on offer!
The Shoes: You can keep your outfit simple with a classic style stiletto or jazz it up with an ankle strap heel. If you're ready to go all out like an absolute brave-heart opt for some thigh high boots. Whichever way you choose to rock it, these are some of what we've scoped out.
The Belt: If you're not quite ready to go full throttle and fancy something on the minimal side you can opt for a belt to cinch in your waist over your coat, jumper or midi dress. Here's what we found on the net!
The Dress: What's a wardrobe update without adding a dress or few? With lace accents, sequins or pleats the leopard trend came in full force in the frock section. Wear with a shirt underneath or throw a blazer on top for added layers. Spoilt for choice with the amount that's available in stores, this is a minute fraction of what we found.
