Trends come and go but there are certain things that never go out of style and leopard print is one of them. New York Fashion Week proved that it’s the print of AW18 with Victoria Beckham showcasing its worth when it comes to the trench coat and Tom Ford proving its ability to take on rainbow sparkle. Yet it’s not just the leopards that are coming out to play, this season has turned into a jungle of the wildest variety with pythons, cheetahs, zebras and crocodiles roaming free on the catwalk. Whatever your animal instinct may be, WSd has a print for every taste…
Anyone who is anyone tried to get their hands on the M&S leopard print shirt dress but if you didn’t manage to get hold of it, fear not because WSd has something even more lust worthy on the hanger. The Luella Elsie dress offers a different spin on the must have piece of the season and won’t leave you worrying that you and your besties will all rock up to Friday night cocktails in the same outfit. I mean everyone is likely to have at least one stand out animal print piece in their sartorial repertoire right now but it’s how you style it that will set you out from the crowd. Why not team your shirt dress with a roll neck, jeans and white kicks for a playful weekend look?
Cheetah’s cold blooded cousin is slinking its way into the great animal print revival of AW18 and Luella has perfected the reptilian pattern with the Edina blouse. The effortless silhouette of this beauty gives it ultimate “grab & go” credentials whilst the monochromatic palette calls for little else in the way of statement making additions. For a fuss free way to work the serpentine print into your wardrobe, style a la Sarah and team the Edina with your fave black skinnies and much loved kicks.
If you’re a Scotch & Soda super fan then be still your beating heart because new season has landed in WSd HQ and it is quite simply beautiful. Animal print has been woven into the collection in a chic and unique way and the result is core pieces that will stand the test of time, not just the season. This mixed print sheer blouse puts a colourful spin on leopard print, whilst the addition of layered ruffle edges and a rib knitted neckline introduces a playful vibe.
Leopard print is such a classic that it can be treated as a neutral and takes on a whole new level of cool when paired with other prints- check and stripes both being hits. Scotch & Soda has done the hard work for us and proved leopard’s ability to roar alongside houndstooth.
Bold yet timeless, the Scotch & Soda contrast sleeve leopard print coat is a key buy this AW and will prove its worth, and warmth, for many seasons to come.
