3 Ways To Wear Leopard Print Like A Pro

It's official. Leopard print is back...again. Alongside stripes, leather jackets and Will & Grace, it's a comeback that you can rely on every time. Although it has a bad rep, leopard print has had some iconic fashion moments over the years. Who remembers French actress Catherine Deneuve's chic YSL leopard print outfits or Naomi Campbell's cheetah shot of the 90's? From Mel B's hipster flares to Kate Moss's winter coat, it continues to be the industry's most powerful print to date.

Seen on the catwalks of Tom Ford, Michael Kors and Lanvin this season, the smattering of leopard print adorned pencil skirts, tailored coats and ankle boots galore. While the very thought may send shivers down your spine, there are plenty of ways to subtly incorporate leopard print into your autumn/winter wardrobe. Or if you're feeling brave, you can adopt the head-to-toe look as seen at Dior. The main point is, Beyonce is wearing it and that's all that matters.

Go gradual

Let's face it, leopard is a print that's confident, sexy and fearless. It can feel intimidating to branch into which is why a hint of it here and there in your outfit is a great place to start. A pop of leopard print on your shoes such as these Winsome Leopard-Print Pumps or a Ganni sweater tied around your shoulders can ease you into the trend whilst staying in your comfort zone.

Choose the right shade of leopard (yes, really)

As uniformed as leopard print may seem to be, there are many different tones, colours and formats to choose from. Yellow leopard print is loud, bold and ready to be seen whereas muted browns and ecru's are more understated and elegant. If committing to the real deal is a little too daunting, this abstract Brown Silk Leopard Printed Lace-Trimmed Maxi Dress is the perfect piece to ease into the trend without compromising on style. For more of a statement hue, this pink variation from Valentino gives a contemporary silhouette a more modern feel.
