Chic trend: Leopard prints for your wild side

January 18, 2011

Leopard prints are red-hot right now! To start with, the Vogue Australia cover this month features model Catherine McNeil in a leopard print zip-up.

So unleash your wild side over the next few weeks with leopard prints in your wardrobe. If you’re lucky enough to find a chic animal print (different from leopard print) garment, don’t let it go.

But let’s admit it: leopard print outfits are not every fashionista’s cup of tea. Speaking Chic brings you simple tips to make it easier for you to wear the trend according to your personality.

Bold Chic

If you’re bold, adventurous and don’t care a damn what the world thinks, make the leopard print the focus of your look: a blouse, dress or coat. If you’re in an experimental mood, dare to pair your leopard print top with printed tights.

Experimental Chic

Not sure if you can go all catty? Add strong elements of leopard or animal prints with a skirt or bold accessory. Or cover your leopard print top or dress with a black blazer or coat, enough to let your wild side show.

Demure Chic

If you’d rather tone down your animal prints, or the occasion requires subtlety, we suggest you opt for accessories with just a hint of the wild cats. Think shoes, cuffs or clutches!
