10 best leopard print pieces to shop now

Posted by for Fashion

Have a leopard love-in with fresh and feisty fashions from Ganni to Reformation.

For some, leopard print is akin to a no-man’s-land in their wardrobe; something crass that they wouldn’t touch with a barge pole. But for others, Carole Baskin included, leopard is very much seen as tantamount to a neutral and, in turn, forms the backbone of their clothes arsenal.

Perhaps it goes without saying that we reside in the latter camp and, with that in mind, it felt like high time to round-up the wildest and feistiest leopard print pieces of all. Indeed, wild animal prints, which were once the preserve of Eastenders stalwart Kat Slater, are no longer the tacky token they once were.

In fact, in recent months, animal prints vied for dominance on the (virtual) catwalks. For Dior’s pre-fall 2021 collection, creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri, churned out an uncharacteristically feisty collection which was peppered with lashings of leopard, while Ganni, which refers to leopard as one of its ‘forever prints’, similarly confirmed leopard print’s position back on the fashion menu in its autumn offering.

They’re big, they’re bold, and they’re crying out for a spot in your summer line-up. These are the best leopard pieces to shop now.
