Still Lingering: Leopard Print

By Jennifer Ennis

Love it or hate it, the leopard skin look is never out of fashion. Fashionistas and celebs alike constantly refer back to leopard print which can give a fun twist to the most sophisticated of outfits and provide release to block colours.  So if you’re ready to acquire this print, we have found some favourites for you at various price points.

Despite the catwalks like Blumarine suggesting that you wear these classic spots head to toe, we recommend only adopting one single leopard piece.

Leopard Print Shoes

Nicole Richie is a big fan, having donned plenty of scarves, headbands and bags in the funky feline pattern. Back in 2006 she complimented a simple black dress with her Lanvin leopard print heels while attending an opening in LA. Next have a similar pair for £28, €30. Leopard print also gives this season’s shoe boot a conventional twist and looks great teamed with black leggings or jeans, as seen on Cheryl Cole. Dune has a gorgeous pair priced around one hundred euros.

Leopard Print Scarf

What better way to brighten up a cold winter than a leopard print scarf. Sienna Miller lived in her Louis Vuitton one while everyone from Kate Moss to Jessica Biel has been spotted wearing theirs. Tolani make great investment scarves but the high street isn’t shying away from it either. Marks and Spencer, Oasis and Topshop all have many different variations and colours at very affordable prices.

Leopard Print Belt

Rihanna wore a small leopard print belt over a red dress to a Dinner in LA last year. Leopard print looks bold and fun when worn with red. Christina Aguilera rocked the same colours at an event in 2006.

You will have no problem finding a belt to suit your shape or budget. Debenhams have a gorgeous skinny one for £12/€14 and if you want to invest, Temperley London has a thicker one for €695 on net-a-porter.

Leopard print bags

Leopard print bags come in many shapes and sizes from the over-sized Jimmy Choo ‘Mandah’ bag with a cult following including Kylie Minogue and Jennifer Lopez to the small and beautiful Louboutin clutches. Or pick up your animal print arm candy on the high street from River Island, Next and Penneys for a fraction of the designer prices.

Leopard Print Leggings

Katy Perry caused a stir when she wore her bright pink blazer with leopard print leggings after a show in London (she was also spotted wearing it with pink leopard print leggings!). These daring leggings prove to be very popular on ASOS who have completely sold out of them already. You can get yours from Urban Outfitters for £14, €16.

This print is sure to pop up every autumn, so you can be certain that whichever piece you choose, it will wear well for seasons to come.

Leopard print dress

Zara has a gorgeous leopard print shirt dress which would look fantastic with wedges and black accessories this summer.

Leopard print cardigans

Leopard print cardigans have crept in and are in the shops now just in time for aw10. Warehouse has one to die for, but it’s selling out fast – if it has already, head for ASOS or Topshop . For the designer diva amongst you, try D&G’s signature print at Matches Fashion.

    LOVE leopard print! You just can’t beat it! I’m loving the little fluffy cardies that I’ve seen around this season too! Think I need to invest in a new pair of leopard-print heels! Thanks for the inspiration! x

  2. Annemarie Says:

    Whisty, where can you get those leopard fluffy cardies you’ve mentioned?

  3. Aoifs Says:

    I loved Sienna’s scarf. I had one similar last year from M&S and left it behind somewhere. Need to get another one so will keep an eye out this year. They can really spruce up a boring outfit. Love the leopard print heels as well, they add something new to a classic outfit such as the LBD.

  4. Annemarie Says:

    Found those leopard print cardis in Oasis!

  5. Suks Says:

    Ha! I just bought a new scarf with gradient leopard print all the way over in H.K!!!

    One reader just mailed in about these cool leopard print snow boots, http://short.ie/or8th4 Love them!

  8. LKay Says:

    I want a fluffy leopard cardie too!! I have just got myself some leopard print shoes and want some sort of scarf or bag (but really – the cardie if I can get it!!).

    Leopard print suede
    Or is that leopard print overkill?

  9. Annemarie Says:

    Fab shoes LKay! Yes that would be overkill – only wear one leopord print item at a time, either cardi or shoes.
