Leopard print is back — and these are the items you will need to give your wardrobe an exotic boost.
With the spring/summer collections hitting stores, it's time to update your wardrobe with one of the biggest trends of the season: leopard print. We first spotted the animal print in the SS18 shows by the likes of Stella McCartney, Givenchy and Prada, but it wasn’t until Kaia Gerber strutted down the Versace catwalk in a full leopard print look that we were ready to acknowledge that the nineties pattern is back once again – and it might be time to say that leopard print is here to stay.

Available in different colours, silhouettes and designs, the leopard print doesn’t have to be intimidating – it’s honestly one of the easiest trends to implement in your wardrobe, as long as you don’t go overboard. Our personal favourites are leopard print dresses, but simply adding a pair of patterned trainers or flats to an all black outfit is a good way to start.
If you want to take it up a notch, try going for animal print trousers. Ganni’s SS18 collection includes a pair of wide leg pants that are easily wearable on a casual day, while Dolce & Gabbana’s tailored trousers will make you want to wear leopard print to the office.

Another way to go beast mode – style-wise we mean – is by dressing up a simple blue or black jeans and T-shirt combo with a leopard print jacket – we eyed up a gorgeous velvet blazer and leather biker jacket that will be added into our shopping basket stat.
And, of course, you can also up your leopard print game with accessories. Sunglasses, belts, handbags or totes, the choice is all yours. Both designer and high street brands offer some great options, so check out our edit to shop the best leopard print items to buy right now.
