Leopard print is the statement print that never dates, and it’s back with a vengeance for Autumn. Whether it’s a subtle hint or the full whack you want to go for, leopard print can take an outfit from glum to glam in the blink of an eye. In fact, we’d say leopard print isn’t just a seasonal trend, but one that stands strong from spring right through to winter. And we’re not just talking the traditional brown leopard print. Oh no, the high street is chock-full of various leopard print alternatives, including that of bold neon hues, gothic glam blacks and even a super micro-sized leopard print. Aficionados can follow our Flash of Leopard Print Pinterest board to keep up with all our print picks.
Needless to say, it’s not just your on-duty looks that will benefit from a touch of leopard print. Some of our favourite gymwear aficionados have turned their hand to leopard print, including Stella McCartney with her much sought-after Adidas line, Steve Madden with some serious statement-making trainers and George at Asda with their amazing gymwear range. In fact, these leopard print numbers alone are enough to motivate even the most unlikely of gym bunnies to get their work-out on.
As for the more formal of events, look to Topshop for various leopard print tops and frocks, Zara for numerous chic, sophisticated tunics and River Island for some crowd-pleasing leopard print arm candy. And with winter right around the corner, Next and Marks & Spencer play host to some of the most gorgeous coats we’ve ever laid eyes upon. Oasis and F&F at Tesco, meanwhile, are perfect for those wanting to jazz up their ensembles but aren’t yet brave enough to go the full mile. Try a pony skin watch or belt to score yourself serious style points.
All in all, leopard print is here to stay, and we’ve put together our edit of the hottest leopard print pieces on the high street right now. Ready, set, shop!
