I’m a long-time fan of leopard print. Despite their cheap ‘n’ nasty reputation, animal prints have the potential to look so classic – I think they encapsulate that nonchalant, no-fucks-to-give Parisian style perfectly. You just need to know how to wear them.
When I spotted (lol) my homegirl Kristabel wearing this ASOS leopard print coat, I knew it had to be mine. I’ve been looking for a nice, full-length faux fur coat for a while and as this one was just £21 (down from £70!) I wasn’t too fussed about the impending spring weather and the possibility I wouldn’t get to wear it ’til next winter. Not that I needed to worry about THAT – thanks for the snow, Universe.
When it comes to wearing leopard print, there are only three things you need:
– Red lipstick
Stick to this formula and you’ll never stray into Bet Lynch territory. Promise. Throw in a good pair of black leather flats and you’re in Off Duty Supermodel mode. This is the coat I’ll chuck over my oh-god-it’s-Monday-and-I’m-late-for-whatever-it-is-I’m-doing outfits.
How do you wear leopard print?
PS – Yes, I am wearing sunglasses in the snow. It was VERY bright this morning!
