Leopard – you can’t ignore it

A neutral. Not going anywhere. Don’t ignore it, embrace it.

Leopard Print, we’ve talked about it before and we’ll talk about it again (no doubt); it’s lost it’s Bet Lynch and Pat Butcher connotations and is there to add a little ding to outfits.
I live in fear of looking too smart/grown up – I have to have something about what I’m wearing that perhaps jars slightly – or my hair, I never do tidy hair. Can’t. It has to be messy in some way. A dash of leopard can be the thing that can jar as well and I’m OK with that.

The pieces I’ve selected below are ones I’d wear separately – with other clothes/colours not all in one go. Yaowzers.

I’ve got a pleather leopard print belt that I wear with my jeans most days. No one usually sees it and that’s fine – I know it’s there and that’s enough for me.

Mine was from M&S…

Not for the faint hearted to go full on animal print trousers, but with the red stripe – it adds a little sporty feel. I’d wear these trousers with a white shirt to smarten them a little… and probably trainers.
