“Live life on the wild side with Leopard Print”
Leopard print…or alternatively the hot new ‘The Big Cat’ trend, I think not. Meow…
Leopard print is what I consider a classic print, it has been trending for long as I can remember, 2565 BC to be exact. Cave men and of course women wore the skin of the leopard as sheaths to protect them form the cold and to give them strength from the animal spirit Source .
Roll on several lifetimes… this wild, bold rosette print has apparently has made a come back but where did it go? No where! We have seen this on the runway time and time again, most recently, Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci. Leopard is a great print to use as an accent for any outfit; be is smart or casual and looks great styled with any colour. You will commonly find items such as coats, handbags and footwear, made from faux fur and pony skin to imitate the fur of the leopard since they are an endangered species.
If you are new to this trend check out my style tips and you’re roaring to go.
- Don’t wear head to toe leopard, unless your planning to camouflage yourself in jungle.
- Wear with bold colours and stand out from the crowd. Primary colours looks great with Leopard. My favourite is red.
- If you have just been enlightened to this print, start off with accessories, such as belts and bags and shoes. Leopards are confident creatures don’t go wild if you’re just trying it out and not sure., its important to be comfortable with your style, break yourself in gently.
- Wear with different textures, such as leather. My favourite combo is a pair of leather /leather look pants and leopard print accessories.
