If you follow me on instagram you’ll know that I am a BIG fan of leopard print. I think it’s such an easy way to give your outfit an edge. Whether you choose to go the whole hog with a long silk maxi dress or a faux fur coat or prefer to accessorise with a scarf, handbag or shoes, leopard print is ALWAYS a good idea.
However, I do have a few of my own style rules
Here are some examples of leopard pieces you WOULDN’T catch me wearing..
Too much, too short
And just to prove that I really don’t know what I am talking about, here is an outfit that breaks ALL my personal style rules and yup, she looks AMAZING! But sometimes I think it’s not about the clothes, it’s all about the person wearing them!
I ordered this dress from Zara (£69.99) which arrived last night. I am undecided as to whether I will keep it as I do struggle a bit with this length. I am wearing it here with tan boots and a camel coat, but I think it would probably look better with black boots and a black coat. I also love the way they have styled it above with black strappy heels. It has a lovely shape and a shirred waist and comes with a gorgeous black satin slip which is separate. Watch out it’s really static material (I tried the safety pin trick and it seemed to help a bit but not completely) I am wearing an XS and would say it was true to size.
Another recent buy was this leopard print shirt which I picked up for £12.99 in the Zara sale. (now sold out but there are some good options below) I love wearing my shirt with an all black outfit, but it would also look great buttoned up under a bright knit or with blue denim and layered gold necklaces.
Here are a few of my other leopard print pieces..
I hope you enjoy my little ‘Leopard Boutique’ – hopefully with something to suit all budgets and all degrees of leopard devotedness!
Yep I’m with you on leopard, love it! I treated myself to the Lois Avery leopard scarf when I went back to work. I love it. I have a coat and scarf and shoes. I fancy the gift pop belt for. Spring as well 😀🐆🐆🐆
Ooh that Lois Avery scarf is beautiful! 👌🏼
With you that it’s a neutral don’t know what I did without it in my wardrobe so glad it has thrown off some of it’s old reputation. I have some
Leopard print trousers but think they only work because they are more black and grey than yellow and black- so animal print rather than leopard. Really love the leopard shirt on you.
There was me thinking ‘leopard, not really my thing’, I look down and laugh as I’m wearing a breton with leopard print around the neck! The leopard is blue rather than camel and black though, and I suppose that’s my personal style rule – not in natural colours. There aren’t many camel colours that suit me, and I don’t wear black very often (almost never), so it just fits better with my style.
I love natural leopard on others, especially a full on dress, but I’m comfortable in my touches in blue (I also have a gorgeous snake print scarf in cobalt, turquoise and grey). I would love a bag in blue leopard! Don’t know whether you’ve guessed but blue is my neutral and statement colour too!!
Hi Chloe, just wondering what size you’re wearing in the Erdem x H&M coat? I’m trying to hunt one down online but not sure on the sizing. You look about the same as me! Thanks so much x
I have an 8 to sell! Brand new x
Yes please! I’ll email you x
