Leopard print often gets a bad rap, but this print has history. It’s always been a staple of glam early-Hollywood starlets like Ava Gardner and Jayne Mansfield, through to icons such as Catherine Deneuve and Kate Moss.
There’s something kind of transformative about leopard print. Whether it’s worn in the form of a statement jacket or simply as an eye-catching accessory, it gives any outfit instant wow-factor.
This season saw the revival of leopard coats on the runways of Salvatore Ferragamo, Tod’s, Versace, Gucci, and Bottega Veneta to name a few, and many street style celebrities weren’t afraid to step out in the print either.
After so many seasons of print-free dressing, we admit it is strange to be looking back to this bold pattern, but when worn with an all-black ensemble or as an accessory with a monochromatic look, leopard print can be classy and very wearable.
