leap into leopard print

If theres one print you need to update your style this September its leopard print. If your fearful of looking like Pat Butcher, or it being a bit edgy,  here are some grown up sleek ways to style this print. One things for sure, this trend is ageless and timeless.

For the evening, invest in a more loose fitting leopard dress. I love the loose style this dress by M&S Limited Collection. Great to wear now with ankle boots but it will work with tights, boots and a belt in the winter months.

Leopard print boots will add some interest into your weekend style. Wear with blue and black denim or tart up last years leather skirt.

A soft flowing wrap skirt will be really easy to wear this season - worn with a simple vest now, polo neck later and white crisp shirt tucked in for the office. 

If you can't wear leopard on your body - try a bag. This faux fur one by Top Shop has loads of personality.

Kettlewell Colours have some fabulous leopard print tops (in other colour ways too!) this scoop one looks fab with navy and red - they also have a 'v' wrap style which is very flattering.

A silk leopard scarf worn with all black looks oh so chic. For weekends wear the scarf as a belt tied through your denim or even a headscarf with your dungarees.

Oh and from the archive, here's some inspiration of how I've worn mine.. (probably not so smart but definitely a little funky)

Hobbs accessories are always really high quality at an affordable price. Work the leopard print trend in the office.

I adore this Mango t-shirt. Love the deep V and the plain black at the back. Fabulous for the evening or teamed with a suit.
