20 Leopard print accessories - because leopard is having a moment

Leopard print is having a moment – there are those who always love it and wear it but when you see top fashion editors wearing it at the shows you know it’s time to take it seriously, even if it isn’t your favourite print.

I don’t go with the ‘wear two contrasting leopard print items idea’.  To me that sounds far too contrived and you want to avoid at all costs the fashion victim look of too much leopard.  So it’s having a moment?  So what? Be subtle and you won’t go wrong.  I’ve always been a leopard print fan, and have a few pieces stashed away if they haven’t already been ‘borrowed’ by the daughter.  A piece here or there will put you right on trend and this is a good moment to invest as there’s a lot to choose from.

Leopard print bags, boots and heels are perfect for days out and weekends, worn preferably with black, pale neutrals or denim. 

Be aware that the best and most wearable pieces won’t hang about so if you really like something go for it….I think I’ve said that before.  There’s a lot to fall in love with here…….
