Would you? Already, leopard in particular is as ubiquitous as denim. But this season is set to be a veritable print safari. There is a theory (kicked off by Carine Roitfeld, the former editor-in-chief of French Vogue) that snakeskin is more grown-up, but we say keep an open mind. All the best prints in the best styles seem to be in leopard. Could you? Absolutely. Animal is open to all because you can dip in with shoes or a bag, or go further with a skirt or blazer. This trend is ageless.
Should you? Your daughter, sister and the girls at work are all leaping on board, so maybe take a rain check. If you are going to do it: don’t go cheap, fuzzy or sheer, and stick to one well-made piece.
