Animal Attraction


When I was really young, one of mum’s friends had a faux-fur jacket in a gorgeous caramel colour, with dark leopard print. It was the late 70s and I was probably only about 5 years old. But I thought this jacket was the most fabulous thing ever. So the fact that animal print has stood the test of time and is a fab way to zhuzh up your wardrobe in summer or winter, day or night makes me more than just a little happy!

Celebrities love animal print too; Rachel Bilson rocked it on the red carpet and Lauren Conrad worked it into cool, casual yet chic daytime attire.

Mix it up and try a little snakeskin as well. I love this trend – snakeskin pencil skirts look incredible with a long-sleeve black shirt and sky-high heels. You can also try mixing colors with leopard print. Try cobalt blue, bold red or emerald green – the pop of colour works fabulously mixed in with leopard print.

If you’re a little nervous to go head to toe, accessorising with animal print is a fab way to make a plain outfit stand out. Animal print clutches are a fab addition to an LBD, or leopard print ballet flats look fab with denim skinnies.

Shop the look at ASOS, missguided, The Iconic, Nine West and Portmans.
