Season after season, leopard print’s popularity rose, it was adopted by even the most Scandi of street stylers, and there was a catwalk that wasn’t serving up a leopard print piece. In fact, leopard print reached such levels of fashion that it was bestowed an incredibly high honour making its way onto a Stylist cover.
Thanks to leopard print’s actually tame colour palette of blacks and brows, the print suddenly went from brash to neutral, making it a much easier piece to wear than people originally assumed. As well as being the welcome break from the fatigued florals and polka dots we lean on as the weather improves.
