If I could describe how wearing leopard print makes me feel in one word, it’d be empowered. From Pat Butcher to Hollywood femme fatales, leopard print has always been a trademark of a strong confident woman.
Some may say it’s trashy, I say it’s sassy. If you too want to feel sassy this winter, then you need to add at least one leopard print piece to your wardrobe.
Being the fashion fortuneteller that I am, I picked up a vintage leopard print blouse in the Tola Vintage kilo sale in Galway. I haven’t worn it yet but now it’s on trend and will look amazing with black jeans and boots.
I’ve styled it with my oversize denim jacket and a Stella McCartney lookalike bag that my housemate kindly brought me back from holidays.
If you feel anxious about wearing leopard print, try a subtle pattern or a leopard print accessory first. Devotees can head straight for the faux fur coats!
These are some of my favourite leopard print lovelies on the high street at the moment. This Topshop belt would look great on blue or black jeans for a subtle leopard print accent.
If you want to go all out, then a leopard coat is the best way to make a statement.
Topshop have this fabulous faux fur one for €125. Definitely the most glamorous way to stay warm on a chilly winter night out !
If that’s completely out of your budget, here are two less expensive options. This brown leopard coat with an oversize collar is €84 from Missguided.
Bershka have a shorter style with a bold print for €59.99.
I also love this delicate leopard print blouse from Bershka. It’s only €19.99 and doubles up as workwear.
River Island have some great leopard print items, including this cosy looking stole which is a great alternative to a woolly scarf.
This biker beaury is courtesy of Zara, I’m dying to get this myself. I’ve seen Niamh Cullen from BehindtheBraids wearing it and it looked stunning on her! It’s not biker season but I digress…
For a daring night out look, I love this bardot playsuit from Missguided, €30.80.
No trend post of mine is complete without a few footwear options naturally. Topshop have great leather ankle boots for just under €100.
For a casual option, try these leopard lace-ups from Asos, on sale right now for just under €20!
