Vintage Leopard Beyond Retro Body, Mink Pink Shorts, Topshop Fringe Kimono, Topshop Black Sandal, Primark Black Rucksack, Forever 21 Hat, Zara Jewellery
I love a bit of leopard print just as much as Kat Slater (just kidding!) but I do love it in small doses or in vintage/mixed up prints! Animal prints usually stick around every A/W in one way or another and this year leopard print and pony skin are the animals to take inspiration from!
Nothing beats wrapping up in fur and knitwear and the luxurious layers but at the moment with the temperatures in the high 20s everyday, high summer is still in full swing. I wear alot of bohemian influenced prints and textures and dressing for summer is where you can really experiment with those summery and bright patterns!
Double leopard print on paper shouldn't work but nothing stopped me trying! The leotard is one of my favourites from Beyond Retro and looks amazing with denim shorts and boots. The shorts I have wanted for ages and are Mink Pink from Urban Outfitters- I LOVE the print and fit of them as they are super high waisted and look great with a crop. I love the clashing prints together and the different textures which give the look depth and interest. I wore my fringe kimono over it for a bohemian esq look and perfect for a hot day where I don't need a jacket. Of course accessorised heavily and with a statement bit of bling. The tiger necklace is one of my all time favourites from Zara and the little turquiose one is New Look. I wore my wide brim hat which always finishes of an outfit. I need to stop wearing hats- obsessed much?! Sandals and bare legs for a hot day and sweaty hour of shooting for me and Amy! Finally finished of with my favourite gold round sunnies and black rucksack.
This outfit was so natural for me to pull for the blog and one I felt super confident in. After all this is my area of expertise.. Busy and printed!
How will you be wearing leopard print next season.... Will it bring out the wild side in your style?
