LEOPARD PRINT – CASUAL OR ELEGANT
Sorry, folks, there are only two ways to do it. Fashion isn’t that democratic when it comes to an (or any) animal print.
Because there’s no need to do the wild thing here.
Everyone – from insiders to outsiders, It girls to influencers – has been telling you that you can wear anything you like, however you like. We want to stop you (and them) right there – especially when it comes to animal prints. You don’t want to go the way of the wildlings. You want to cop the chic women of the ’40s, ’50s and ’60s. Why? Because they knew that leopard print was a statement in itself and best represented with classic styles that purred rather than roared.
