Leopard print finds its groove
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.
