Leopard print for LIFE
As much as I love a good trend, I try not to jump on too many at one time and I was so sure I could avoid the leopard print mania when it hit in August…how wrong I was! It started with a gorgeous midi skirt from Primark that was bought on a whim and before I knew it my wardrobe was FULL TO THE BRIM with leopard print beauties.
So, today, I thought I would share three leopard print items I’ve added to my wardrobe for autumn – a midi skirt, a jumper and a dress. I’ll add links below so you can find these gems for yourself (for the Primark skirt I’ll link to something similar).
The midi skirt
Honestly, when I saw this in Primark there was no bloody way I was leaving without it! For £10 it was such a steal, and I love how floaty and feminine it is. As you can see above, my fave way to style this skirt is with an oversized cream jumper and ankle boots. Alternatively, I would go for a black roll neck and heels if I wanted to dress it up a bit more. I feel midi skirts are a really great way to get into wearing a print as you can easily pair them with basics you already have in your wardrobe
The cosy jumper
Is it possible to be a jumper addict? If it is, I’m definitely one, I just can’t stop buying them, even when my wardrobe is heaving! When I spotted this Bershka beauty on the ASOS website, it was love at first site and I couldn’t wait for it to arrive with me so I could start wearing it ASAP. I love the soft, brushed effect on it, and it’s super easy to throw over the top of a more basic top and mini skirt/jeans combo.
The midi dress
You can probably tell by now that midi lengths are my comfort zone. This little number from Influence was also an ASOS find and I love how it looks belted and with a pair of ankle boots (I’ve just noticed I’m wearing the same pair in all of these outfits…whoops!) I popped a vest top under this, otherwise it was basically a nip slip waiting to happen. If it’s a particularly cold day, I love wearing this with a jumper layered over the top for maximum cosiness.
