Leopard Print: How To Wear The Trend This Winter

Leopard print has had a sexy overhaul.

The Chloé, Celine and Givenchy Autumn/Winter 2014 catwalks showcased the feline print in a big way and made it work with every wardrobe staple: ankle boots, midi skirts, faux fur outerwear and cosy knits.

1960s fashion: How to wear the Autumn/Winter 2014 trend

Pat Butcher may have given leopard print a frumpy rep but if you look back to the 1960s and tune into how hot a mini skirt, print button-down coat and matching pillbox hat looked - think Jackie O - that's the style to steal.

1960s-inspired fashion is huge this season (the palette, the tailoring, the texture) so buying a few leopard print pieces is how to do both trends at once.

A coat is your obvious investment item and you can opt for: chubby/puffa, trench, fur, floor-length or mac styles all in leopard print.

If a coat is too wild for you, then think about a statement t-shirt (tucked into your leather skirt), boots, bags and scarves that you can pair with plainer pieces.

Mixing traditional leopard print shades with bright, punchy palettes is another way to get the look: go for petrol blue, red and purple.
