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!
