Leop­ard print finds its groove

ELLE (Australia) - - Contents -

Leop­ard print roars back to life with a new, grown-up twist.

We only have to cast our minds back to our spir­ited, an­i­mal print-wear­ing sis­ters from the ’90s (Scary Spice, Sa­man­tha Jones, an unim­pressed Sha­nia Twain...) to know there’s an in­her­ent fierce­ness to leop­ard. With the ad­di­tion of just one piece, its wearer can evoke that elu­sive con­fi­dent, sexy, cool en­ergy – the same ef­fect per­fectly tou­sled hair or worn-in red lip­stick has. This sea­son, street-style favourites went Kate Moss-does-boss lady in pol­ished coats, pen­cil skirts and trousers. Fol­low suit in a co­or­di­nat­ing, well, cat suit or opt for ac­ces­sories with bite – a bucket bag and retro sun­glasses are all the more em­pow­er­ing in spots. Meow.
