Leopard print is set to be one of autumn/winter’s hottest trends. Wipe away any Pat Butcher associations from your minds, ladies, because every stylish fashion house and high street store has featured it in its latest collection, and every celeb who’s anyone has already bought into the trend.
Case in point: Leighton Meester. You know a trend is going to have mileage if the Gossip Girl clan is on board. The actress was snapped behind the scenes of the hit show in an animal print minidress set off by Mulberry’s must-have Alexa Mini in black patent leopard print.
We realise that not everybody can pull off this look from head-to-toe, so here are two basic style rules:
1. Leopard accessories are easier to wear than a garment. Choose a belt, a pair of shoes or a clutch, but NOT all at once!
2. Tone down the look by pairing leopard with classic colours like black, brown and camel.
